I recently got a couple of new pads of Christmas paper from My Mind's Eye. Well, new to me. They'd been released a couple of years ago but I think were just recently made into 6x6 pads. And I found this gorgeous paper in one of them and thought that with a sentiment it would make a quick, easy, yet still gorgeous card. So I stamped the sentiment in red ink, added some rhinestones and matted the papers. Voila! I love that this is extremely mail-able and won't require any extra postage.
I also made a card using the new Clearly Sentimental Label Die-namics. This label is sized perfectly for all of the Clearly Sentimental sets - genius! Because I had my heart set upon using this sentiment, I cut the edges off and matted it on a second label so it wouldn't get lost in the middle. I just love the font - the way the "L" is turned into a heart is gorgeous. And funny enough, when I see the bird above it, I sometimes read it as "Dove". The mind plays funny tricks! I thought the bird from Die-namics Contempo Cage set could pass for a dove if done in white and I think I was right. I also cut a Leafy Flourish and lopped the end off for my olive branch and used the Scallop Ribbon Border as my vertical element. This layout is this week's Wednesday sketch challenge - I wanted to give it another go.
For the inside I used the new Crown Border die as well as the rest of my Leafy Flourish and another sentiment from the set.
