11/13 Peace & Joy


I finally had a chance to play with the Holiday Windows Movers and Shapers featured in the Holiday Mini Catalog. I was most attracted to this set of dies because of the bird image and I had an idea in mind that I wanted to try - and this was it! My card actually turned out just as I envisioned it! (How rare is that?!)
.
I used my Big Shot Machine, the Movers & Shapers Curly Label Die, the Bird from Holiday Windows Movers & Shapers and the olive branch from the Little Leaves Sizzlit. All was going perfectly fine. I added the ribbon, also from the Holiday Mini catalog from the Mistletoe Ribbon Originals. It looked great . . . but I was missing a sentiment. I hadn't put away the Scenic Season stamp set from the last card I made so I was wondering if there was some way I could use the sentiment from that set on this card and then the light bulb went off! I grabbed my Chocolate Chip marker, inked up just the words "peace and joy", stamped them on a scrap of Kraft, punched it out with the Word Window Punch and my sentiment looked perfect tied to the ribbon with a bit of Linen Thread. The full sentiment is then stamped on the inside panel of the card. Love, love, love it!

Have a great day and thanks so much for dropping by my blog today! I appreciate you!
