Peace On Earth

Hello CottageCutz friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with us today. It's Mary Marsh here bringing you the Saturday edition of the Blog. 

It's crunch time now for Christmas cards. I still am not done making all my cards and then there is the addressing and mailing to be done. Yikes! I needed a few quick cards to finish up for Christmas 2022. 

So for today I am featuring the Peace on Earth and the Holiday Dove w/Floral dies. Both are from the Christmas Part 2 collection and are on sale for 30% off. 

Here are the card details:

I found these card bases in my stash and I loved the foggy yet peaceful and serene snow scene. I thought they would be a great backdrop for the Peace on Earth phrase as well as the Peace dove. And my card for this week was born. 

I had 3 of these bases and decided to cut them in half to create more cards. So I was able to get 5 cards in this design.  The background is very sparkly and my photos aren't doing the paper justice. 
In order to create an A2 card (4 1/4" x 5 1/2"), I cut the panel to 4" x 5 1/4". For my layering panel I wanted to use some silver paper but I didn't have any, but I found these silver envelopes. I cut them apart (4 1/8" x 5 3/8") and used them- they worked perfectly. My card base is a dark gray - 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". 
I cut my phrase sentiment and the dove in a white glitter paper. My camera isn't picking up the sparkle in this paper either. They both look great against the snowy background. These aren't traditional Christmas colors, but I like to create cards for the Holidays using non-traditional colors. 
Now that my card elements are prepared, I am ready to start card assembly. I attached all the layering pieces with double sided tape. 
Next, I attached my sentiment with clear glue and the dove with dimensional adhesive. 
And that's my card for this week. See you next Saturday!
