Peace on Earth

Hello and Happy Monday!  This month is seriously flying by... and yes I'm sharing another Christmas card with Halloween not even here yet... yikes!  Alas, the life of a card maker hehehe!  So today's card involves some masking, creative stamping, and coloring.  And did I mention it was a ton of fun?  I chose to work with the All Wrapped Up Stamp Set from The Alley Way Stamps (it is one of their newest sets and it is so cute for the holidays!)...


I started this card by tracing one of my circle dies with a pencil.  I then stamped my birds at the top of the circle.  Next I created a mask for the birds and began stamping my "wreath" by repeatedly stamping the little leaf branch image.  I then colored my wreath before removing the bird mask.  Next I colored the birds and stamped my sentiment.  To finish things off I added some distress ink to the edges, backed it with patterned paper, and added some twine.  Oh and I almost forgot it got the glitz treatment with some wink of stella!


I am entering this into the following challenge:
Happy Little Stampers:  Here is the sketch I based this card on:

and in the One Crazy Stamper Challenge: Halloween/Christmas


Happy Crafting, and thanks for stopping by!
