Peace On Earth Christmas Challenge #1

 Welcome! - Today I'm sharing a card I created for a brand new challenge blog.

Remember the (Two Old Bats) Halloween challenge featured here?
Well the same two ladies (Darlene and Diane) just started a new challenge blog that they have named: Peace on Earth Christmas Challenge.
I found out about it from my good blogging friend, Leslie (Running With Scissors)  who just happens to be an awesome stamper and a member of the Design Team.

So for the Peace On Earth Christmas challenge #1  here is the Mood/Inspiration board:

Below is the card that I created for this challenge.  For my inspiration I chose the Red/White color combo from the bottom right photo and the Nordic feel of the boot from the bottom left photo.
Here is what I came up with.  It's a pretty CAS card (Clean and Simple) which is something I struggle with as I always want to add something extra but I held back and just let this one speak for itself.
 Card Details:  Card Stock: Real Red & Whisper White (SU)
Real Red Ink Pad
Designer Paper - Retired SU (Feels Like Frost).
Stamp: Artful Inkables - Peaceful Wishes (sadly they are no longer in business). 
Snowflake Die - Momenta  (Purchased at Hobby Lobby). 
Circle Dies
Heart Brad & Foam mounting tape.
Quick & Easy so they could be mass produced.


  1. This is very well done...sometimes clean and simple fills the bill.
