Peaceful wishes

Happy Thanksgiving! Before the family comes over for dinner I wanted to write a quick blog post, and since we're getting our first accumulating snowfall today, this card seems appropriate:

Supplies (all Stampin' Up!):
Kit: Watercolor Winter Simply Created Card Kit
Paper: Gold foil sheets
Accessories: Christmas Greetings Thinlits dies, Softly Falling embossing folder, gold sequin trim, Snowflake Elements, Mono Multi liquid glue, Fine-Tip Glue Pen

I've been making a lot of my Christmas cards from kits this year, and one of those kits is the Watercolor Winter Simply Created Card Kit. This kit was in last year's Holiday Catalog, but I bought in on clearance after Christmas and saved it for this year. Most of the cards in the kit I made according to the directions (or with just a few small tweaks) because I really liked the designs, but I wasn't crazy about the layout with watercolor stripes on the white card base. So I changed it up and added a few additional supplies to make this card.

I started by embossing the front of the card with the Softly Falling embossing folder. Then I glued on the vellum and wooden snowflakes. (For the vellum snowflake I just applied tiny dots of liquid glue where I knew it would be hidden by the wooden snowflake.) I die cut the word "peace" from a gold foil sheet and added a few white sequins from the kit as well as a few gold sequins.

It's a simple card, but I think that's appropriate for the sentiment. I hope you and your loved ones have a wonderful Thanksgiving and a peaceful holiday season. Thanks for stopping by!
