When you think of the word "peace", what color do you associate with it? White? Yes? That thought is what inspired me to create this card:
Giving my Big Shot a workout made this card possible. Oh, the Big Shot, lots of Stampin' Dimensionals. And, of course, Whisper White cardstock. Hmmm. "Whisper White" itself elicits peaceful thoughts, don't you agree?
The wreath adorning the Hearth & Home Thinlits window is created from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits. And the perky bow at the top of the wreath comes from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits..
Even though the card is pure white, I think it makes for a very dramatic statement.
And, because of the use of multiple Stampin' Dimensionals, the card has a lot of -- well, DIMENSION! And don't you love it all against the Brick Wall Embossing Folder?
My girls at the last Stamp-In Workshop created this card as one of their projects. Would you like to create one of your own? Yes? Here's how:
Whisper White cardstock
Swirly Scribbles Thinlits
Mini Treat Bag Thinlits
Hearth & Home Thinlits
Christmas Greetings Thinlits
Brick Wall Embossing Folder
Fold a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of Whisper White cardstock in half, creasing well with a bone folder.
Run a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of Whisper White through the Big Shot inside the Brick Wall embossing folder.
Create a window frame using the Hearth & Home Thinlits.
Cut a "wreath" using one of the squiggled circles from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits.
Cut a bow using the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits.
Cut the word "peace" with the Christmas Greetings Thinlits.
BASICALLY ALL THE COMPONENTS OF THE CARD ARE PUT TOGETHER WITH STAMPIN' DIMENSIONALS OR LITTLE PIECES OF THEM.
With Dimensionals, adhere a 2 1/2" x 3 1/4" piece of Whisper White cardstock to the back of the window frame.
Mount the completed window frame to the brick wall raised a bit from center. (I made the mistake of centering my window, and that left the word a bit too low.)
Adhere the word to the brick wall using tiny dots of glue.
Attach the brick wall to the card base with Stampin' Dimensionals at each corner and one in the middle.
Truly, after you are able to sit down from your many minutes at the Big Shot cutting all the components, the card comes together quickly.
