CAS Christmas Card 2009


When I saw this Martha Stewart punch at Michaels I knew I wanted somehow to incorporate it into my Christmas Cards this year and keep them very simple...I usually spend so much time on my cards because I always use Christmas Stamps and theres usually alot of coloring involved...I make 40 cards every year and have been doing it for over 12 years now...I decided this year I was going to do something Clean and Simple...Whats great about this is that its a whole lot less time spent on mass quanities...and no stamps! I found a great font on my computer to spell out peace so this is all matting and then punching out the dove...I initally wanted to find a branch small enough to put in the birds mouth and add a bit of red bling to it like holly but cant find a branch that small...Clean and Simple is a style I LOVE so I am going with it this year....Ok now I need your help in deciding whether or not to add bling or not please let me know in the comment section the top one has bling on the "P"...TFL! Have a Wonderful Day!
Supplies: Papers by DCWV, Punch by Martha Stewart, Pop Dots by All Night Media, Ribbon by Offray, Font Edwardian Script

Cookie this is absolutely stunning. I adore the little dove and the font on Peace, but the entire design and finished card are incredible!

Simply beautiful, Cookie. No need for bling. The design and colors stand on their own!

Hi Cookie! Your card turned out just perfect! I love the dove punch you used- now don't make me go out and buy this punch....LOL I guess I'm a bling girl so I vote to add the bling, it gives it that little bit of pizzazz!
