To start my card, I die cut a piece of kraft card stock from a stitched scallop rectangle die to create a small focal panel. I took the stamp set Holiday Ribbons and I stamped one of the patterns to create "faux ribbons" on my panel. I took the "x" pattern first and I heat embossed it in gold embossing powder, followed by stamping the diamond strip on top with Lobster ink. Next, I stamped my sentiment Peace on Earth, but I wanted to stamp it in a stacked pattern in the middle in Pine Needles ink. To stamp my sentiment, I carefully inked up the sentiment one word at a time, and there was enough space in between to use my small ink cube to ink of the sentiment.
For an extra touch, I stamped the berries and branch images from Bits and Pieces: Winter since I had just enough space to fit those in on the right and left of the word " On" in my sentiment.
I wanted to create a background to stand out from my focal point, so I took another piece of kraft card stock, and prepped it with my powder tool, and inked up the Gingham Background with white pigment ink, and then applied some detail white embossing powder to really make the white background pop! I then added a strip of green striped washi tape from my stash and added it to the middle to bring out more of the green in my sentiment, and then took one of the stitched frame dies from the Find the Beauty die set, and die cut my panel so it would have the stitched detail all the way around.
For assembly of my card, I added some foam tape to my focal panel, and adhered it to my embossed background piece, and then added that to a top fold A2 size kraft card base. For a final small touch, I added a bit of shimmer to my berries with my Wink of Stella shimmer pen.
