Stampin' Up! Hope & Peace + DSP, Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop 11/10

My card pretty much follows the sketch, don’t you think? This particular piece of DSP is from Painted Christmas DSP and I love the softness of this background. I layered this panel on a Basic White piece and adhered it to the Garden Green card base with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment in Sweet Sorbet ink using the Hope & Peace stamp set from the Jul-Dec 2022 Mini Catalog. It was stamped on Basic White and die cut it with the Stylish Shapes Dies. I had another scrap of the Painted Christmas DSP and cut it to 3/4″ x 2 12. I put this in place on the card front then added the stamped circle die cut over it using dimensionals. For a bit of added color and glam I added the Adhesive Backed Seasonal Sequins. All the half dimensionals used on the back of the circle hold both the circle & the strip in place 😏

For the inside… I stamped the sentiment in Sweet Sorbet ink on the Basic White inside panel. I pulled out the Merriest Moments stamp set which is a carry-over and stamped the holly leaves in Garden Green ink.I added more of the Adhesive Backed Seasonal Sequins in Sweet Sorbet and really like the added touch.

For the envelope, more of the same Painted Christmas DSP on the envelope flap. For the front of the envelope I stamped the holly leaves from Merriest Moments stamp set in Garden Green ink, then stamped the berries from the same stamp set in Sweet Sorbet ink ~ and the card/ envelope was done!
