This month has been insanely busy for me so this card was done over several days because I had to work on it a little bit here and little bit there. I started by using distress oxide inks and blending them over a white panel of bristol card stock. Then I used circle stamps and water to add some lighter spots over it. I was trying for a bokeh look that I saw on merry making online card classes but I need more practice. However, I still like the overall look :) The peace stamp is one of my first Christmas stamps and still one of my favorites. I used versamark ink to stamp it on vellum and heat emboss it with silver embossing powder. Then I die cut it with a scallop die and layered it on some circle cardstock.
I cut the blended panel in half and adhered it to a base with a gate fold. Then I cut a thin strip of white cardstock to add to one edge. The small sentiment was embossed with white powder on a thin black strip. The circle was placed on one side with foam tape and the thin sentiment was glued to the top.
