Peace...be still

Good morning everyone, I have one more Christmas card to share with you all, not sure how many more I'm going to be making before I move on to the next holiday. Trust me, I'm ready to move on!
This stamp is an older one from Sunshine Designs, one of the first stamps I ordered when I resumed stamping several years ago. It's one of my favorite Poinsettia stamps of all time. 
I stamped it three times on good sturdy water color paper and heat embossed it in gold. I pulled out my beloved Twinkling H2O's to color this beauty up and cut out three separate layers.


The flourishes are from Papertrey Ink's Silent Night set (which I cut up into two separate stamps for added flexibility) and also gold embossed those. I do that occasionally to my stamp sets, when I know it's a keeper and I want to be able to get more use out of certain stamps. Don't be afraid to cut them up to suit your tastes!


The card base and the Label diecut were also cut from the same water color paper, it lends such an elegant, rich look to a card. I love to use it when I know I'm going to be using white on white.
The sentiment is from PTI's Peace be still set (obviously, lol).

Well I really should go send out my Christmas cards, hopefully in time for Christmas. I am such a procrastinator!

Thanks for visiting!
