Create a Peaceful Scene With Carols of Christmas
Don’t you just love the peaceful scene on this card created with the Carols of Christmas bundle? I can almost see the deer’s ears twitching as it senses me watching him! Furthermore, the scene on this card is perfect for the Peace on Earth sentiment which comes in the bundle. Also, if you listen carefully with your eyes, and imagination, you can almost hear this card sing, “peace on earth!”
For me, there is nothing more soothing than being out in nature. The sound of critters going about foraging and the serenity of the stillness when they are bedded down, are both things that calm my spirit. Big cities like Colorado Springs tend to drown out the soothing sounds of nature. For this reason, I really miss the bike trail in Waverly, Iowa, back near my hometown. The trail is alive with the sounds of nature! Plus, biking it is good exercise!
Carols of Christmas Inspiration and Creation
Inspiration for this card was taken from on of our demonstrator publications called, “Stampin’ Success.” This publication is filled with inspiration, techniques, and class ideas. If you would like to receive this awesome publication, all you need to do is join my team! You can read more about that opportunity here.
Since I love nature so much, I fell in love with the card immediately. However, the original card design used designer series paper for the background. Unfortunately, background paper is not very practical for a large number of make and takes, so I needed to use a different design element. Thankfully, the Carols of Christmas stamp set included those nifty little stars! The stars were perfect for creating a background with repetitive stamping. The background of stars is stamped in black ink on Crumb Cake for a woodsy, night-time feel. In addition, I accented the stars with Black Rhinestone Jewels.
