Hello Crafty Friends! Thanks so much for stopping by! There’s a new Simon release coming very soon, but today, we are having an IG Hop over on Instagram using products from the latest Peace on Earth release. I hope you’ll head over there to check it out. But for now, let’s go through the details of my card.
I don’t always like or love my own cards, but I do like this one! I began this project by using the PinkFresh Studio Diagonal Stitched Rectangles to cut a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock. I then used the SSS Peace, Joy, Hope, Love Stencil along with the some Iridescent Gina K Glitz Glitter Gel to create this background panel. Super simple, yet so pretty!
For the sentiment, I opted to use the SSS Clean Line Christmas set. I’ve used this set over and over again! It ends up being my go-to set when I need a simple holiday sentiment. Anyhoo, I stamped the sentiments using VersaFine Black Onyx ink and heat embossed them using Ranger Clear Embossing Powder. I used the coordinating die to trim out the peace sentiment and just trimmed the sub-sentiment using my paper trimmer.
I used the SSS Delicate Leafy Branch and die cut it once from black cardstock, once from glitter cardstock and once from silver cardstock. I adhered all of those together, but only applying glue on the base part of the stems. By doing that, the leaves and part of the stem are “free-flowing,” which adds interest in my opinion.
To assemble the card, I glued the branch to the top corner and adhered the sentiments just below that using foam tape. I adhered the panel to black cardstock before adhering it to the card base.
That does it for this project! I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope you’ll stop by Instagram to check out the hop! Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome!
