It’s the start of a new week – are you ready for it? I’m a bit psyched as I have a couple of things happening this week – and well, I just have a positive attitude, which helps. I haven’t played with the Dove of Hope Bundle much and decided today was the day to share a card with that as the focus.

This bundle has some stunning dies, for the wings and for the tail. You can see them in this photo. The dove has a sweet look on it’s face, don’t you think so? The dove practically makes the card all by itself. But I also like the background it’s on – almost like a cloud in it’s softness except of course it’s rectangular.

Let’s get to the deets on this sweet card.

Dove of hope Bundle #1

Begin with Gray Granite cs as your card base. Add a layer of Whisper White and Peony Garden DSP which have been placed on dimensionals and added to the card base. Die cut the dove from Whisper White cs using the Stitched Dove Dies that are part of the Dove of Hope Bundle. I used four dies for the dove. Don’t you love the intricateness of the wing die? The background wing is a solid one – could have used the intricate but I wanted this dove flying up and knew it wasn’t going to show much. The intricate tail is all part of the body of the die. Behind it I have added a solid tail for depth and that was added with a mini dimensional so it wouldn’t be flat. The wings were attached with liquid glue. I also die cut a sprig from Just Jade cs. I like how this slight color gives the card a brightness – and hope.

Dove of Hope Bundle #2

When I was fiddling with placement I decided a layer of texture was needed and pulled out the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty DSP and turned it over to the white side. It was just enough! I used Stampin Seal to adhere the dove to the Laser-Cut paper, then Stampin Seal again just where the dove was to adhere that to the card front. I added a tiny dot of liquid glue to the Just Jade sprig and slipped in under the beak, adhering it to the beak.

Dove of Hope #1

For the sentiment panel, I stamped in Just Jade ink on Whisper White cs using a sentiment from the Dove Of Hope stamp set. I die cut this using one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I added a Just Jade cs strip to the back of the sentiment banner with liquid glue. I adhered this to the card front with dimensionals. For a final bit of glam I added three Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems – and the card front was done.

For the inside of the card I stamped the sentiment in Just Jade ink on a Whisper White panel then stamped the larger sprig in stamped off once Gray Granite ink. You probably think these should have been reversed (the sprig in Just Jade ink), but I wanted the sentiment to be the focus.

Dove of Hope Bundle #3

For the envelope I stamped the smaller dove in stamped off once Gray Granite ink and covered the flap with a panel of the same Prized Peony DSP, adhering it with liquid glue. And the card was done… Hope you like!
