Peace on earth

Hi there!

Time to join some inspirational challenges with a Christmas card!



Up close:



Another card combining my love for traditional card making methods using stamps as well as my Silhouette.

I used 2 stamps from the Natures Treasure from Uniko. The smallest leaf in the beak of the dove, and the largest outline leaf in the negative space of the circle.

I colored the large leaf with a Promarker (color - Pine). There's a Wink of Stella on those leaves...  not visible on the photo unfortunately. 😆

The dove was cut from a free clipart image found on the internet.
I finished off the card with 3 red enamel dots.

The sentiment is my own design, and I will share it below (2 versions).

Another lovely Hannelie design! Very serene & just enough colour without drawing away from the sentiment.

WOW Hannelie! I adore this and absolutely LOVE how you used a non Christmas Uniko leaf in a Christmas way. It works beautifully with your dove and beautiful sentiment. Thanks so much for sharing, inspiring and joining in on the Uniko Challenge. Hugs Bev x
