'Tis The Season-- Day 3!

Awww!  Today is the final day of the 'Tis The Season Blog Hop!  Even though I'm a little sad that it's all over, I have had a BLAST seeing all of the wonderful projects that everyone has created!  Special, special thanks to Iva for allowing me to participate!  Her blog rocks!  If you haven't had a chance to stop by, please do- !  If you're following the hop you were treated to a super-cute card by Mary over at The Paper Salon!

For my third and final project I am sharing a card I call...

Peace of the Season

This card is all about simple elegance and I was able to use one of my favorite Christmas colors schemes of blue, white, and silver.  Nice and easy to do too!  Here's how I did it:
  • The base is an A2 sized in white.  The bottom blue mat was cut at 5 3/8" (w) X 4 1/8" (h).  The top white mat was cut at 5 1/8" (w) X 3 7/8" (h).
  • The blue strip was originally cut at 5 1/2" (w) X 1" (h).  Then I ran the strip through my Cuttlebug in the D'vine Swirls folder.
  • Using a metallic silver ink pad, I ran it lightly over the embossed swirls to bring them out.  I adhered the strip to the white mat, trimmed off the excess, then adhered the white mat to the blue.
  • At this point, the card front is just about complete, so I when ahead and adhered it to my white base.
  • The bird was cut from the Indie Art Cricut cartridge at 2 3/4".  First I cut it out in white using the 'blackout' feature, then I cut the original image out in the blue.  My wonderful lovely roll tipped Zig Pen helped me adhere the two layers together.  (As a hint: just 'dotting' on the Zig glue works perfectly!)
  • Once my bird was together, I used some mini pop-dots to adhere it to my card front.  And then- taaa-daaa!!  Peace of the Season is complete!
Thanks everyone for stopping by!! I hope this isn't the last time you'll come visit!!  Everyone is always welcome to join me in my Create Daze!!  Now I'll send you on over to Vickie!  Happy Holidays everyone!!
