Holiday Card Series 2013 – Peace on Earth

2013HCS-Title_edited-1

Day 1

I am kicking of my first (annual) holiday card series today with a card that is perfect if you have many cards to make this holiday! It’s a one-layer, one stamp set card that uses minimal supplies and has only a few steps in its creation, so very easy to reproduce in bulk! The stamp set featured in this card is the brand new Peaceful Forest set.

I started with a sugar card base and cut a 3.25” circle in the front of the card panel using my Spellbinders circle dies and my Sizzix die cutting machine. I placed the die on my card front, secured it with a bit of washi tape so it wouldn’t move as it went through the machine and was left with a hole in the front of my card. I traced a light circle with pencil around the inside of the hole and opened up the card. The pencil line gave me the area that would be seen through the card front and created a reference circle where I stamped the tree images in grass ink. I stamped some of the trees twice without re-inking (second generation stamping) to add some depth to my “forest”. I then erased the pencil line and stamped the sentiment on the front of the card in cherry ink.

The only embellishment is a bit of cherry baker’s twine to add interest and a bit more color. Fun, fast and perfect for your holiday message!
