SC264- Peaceful Christmas

Aren’t these doves just amazing? I LOVE this stamp. Been dying to use it for months. Finally found the right sketch for it. I plan to emboss it in gold on white next, but this time, I wanted to use…

THIS AWESOME PAPER! This paper is “flower seed paper.” You can rip off that image, put it in a pot, cover with a light layer of dirt, and water. Flowers are supposed to grow! It’s perfect for people who don’t keep cards forever, but hate to throw them away. Once that image is gone, guilt free tossing! I swear, if these grow like they’re supposed to, I’m going to find more of this paper and make all my cards with it! YEEEEEEEHAAAWWWWW!

Oh, and i used that gold mesh. ME. Gold. I was sure I’d NEVER use that mesh from Webster’s pages and voila! USED.

Oh, and see that envelope back there.  That’s something that I always forget to do and it’s such a simple thing.  We tend to want to make the images all “focal” points, but adding a little peek of something like that gives a card dimension and interest while still keeping the real focal point central.  Just a hint…

So… one Christmas card done, five million to go. *thud*
