Peace on earth

Hi Papercrafters!

Today I have a lovely white and gold Christmas card with a beautiful foiled sentiment "Peace on Earth'!

I love this message, it says so much about how so many of us feel ..... if only!!

I started by creating a 4" x 6" card.

I then embossed a 3 1/4" wide x 2 1/2" x 5 1/2" tall piece of white card with the beautiful 'First Snow' embossing folder. I love this folder and find my self using it regularly!

Next I foil embossed a piece of 2 1/2 " x 3" wide piece of white cardstock with  'Peace of Earth" foil stamp and my Go Press and Foil Machine.

Finally I cut two pieces of matte gold mirror board, 3.5" wide x 5.5" tall and the second at 3 3 1/8" wide and 2 3/4" tall. 

I then attached all the layers to my card base.

Next I die cut the Poinsettia Flower and Christmas flourish in mat gold paper and attached to by card. I decided not to add the beautiful branches this time, and to keep the card …

Here is what I did!

First up I cut out three of the big poinsettias.On white cardstock I drew a red pen border 1/4" all around the page, I was noy too ,precious' about creating a straight line, a wiggle here and there looks great and is easier!I cut the music strip off one of the pages from the paper pad and attached it approx 5" up from bottom of white base page.I attached the poinsettias, using foam tape on the one that surrounds the photo.I attached the vellum poinsettias onto the layout by slipping them behind the main flowers.I mixed some red pigments with a little …
