    Peace, Love, and Hope – Doves

    Merry Christmas Everyone!!!  As we all gather (6 feet apart) this year please say a prayer for all of those who have lost someone dear to them over this pandemic.

    The medical professionals say that hope is on the horizon so we must still be vigilant in all of the health practices so that we can have many more holidays with loved ones to come.

    These cards were made with Hope in mind, hope for a better future. 

    The dove has always represented peace and hope so what better time then now to make these cards for Christmas.  I also made an ornament to go on our tree and many of my friend’s trees as well. 

    I used white cardstock for the doves and backed their wings with vellum.  I then attached a gold branch in the mouth of the doves.

    For the first card I embossed teal cardstock for added texture and added a small piece of gold ribbon towards the bottom with a small message of Peace, Joy, and Love.

    As for the second card, I die cut a dark blue circle and attached the dove in the center of the circle, I then stamped the same message of Peace, Joy, and Love towards the bottom of the card.

    The dove ornament was die cut and put together and then attached to a wire hoop that I wrapped ribbon around.  I added some ribbon to the top so that the dove could be added to a package or on a tree.

    Golden Deer

    Pure and simple but elegant that’s what I say about this card. I used a quilted pillow type of embossing folder for the background and die cut a gold metallic deer.  For the inside I heat embossed the sentiment, “May this yuletide season be filled with joy.”

    Angel Wings

    Angel wings, what thought comes to your mind?  I made this card for someone who lost a very dear loved one.  Although it won’t bring them back you can at least ring the bell and know that an angel will receive their wings at Christmas.

    I added some ribbon and attached a small bell to the card and die cut a set of wings. The sentiment on the side is something that I grew up with.  We always had bells to ring around our house and I have continued with that tradition.

    Blue Background Ornaments

    This card has a couple of layers on it but will still go thru the mail without extra postage. I added a little copper foil banner and some designer paper. For the inside I added the simple sentiment of Merry Christmas.
