Sending Peace Week - Day 1

August 13, 2018

Hello everyone, Nicky here with you today and sharing a card using 'Sending Peace' from the brand new Avery Elle release.  This stamp set would work well both on its own or in conjunction with your other Avery Elle stamps since it consists of mostly words together with a few mini images.

My card/giant gift tag started with an A2 panel of Bristol Smooth cardstock which I ink blended using Distress Oxide Inks in Worn Lipstick and Twisted Citron.  I then splattered on some water and blotted it up to distress it.  I thoroughly wiped the surface with my embossing buddy and then placed the panel in my Misti, laid out the word stamps and stamped with Versamark Ink then heat embossing in silver.  Next the panel was die cut using the Avery Elle die called A Tag For All.  I die cut the matching back piece with another piece of white cardstock and the little silver binding piece for the top was die cut in glittering silver cardstock.

On a little piece of white cardstock I stamped and embossed the other little sentiment words and the dove and applied after die cutting with dimensional foam tape.   I scored the back panel about a half inch from the top so that it could be flexed to have the card stand up and adhered it to the front panel and bound the top with the glittered piece.

The finishing touches were the application of a few sparkling clear sequins and I tied some cream/silver baker's twine through the hole at the top.

Thank you for stopping by the blog today, see you next time!
