Christmas Dove

I mentioned in my earlier post about ‘my favourite Christmas Card’ I’d made.

There’s a bit of a story to this one ….

For last weekend’s Stamp A Stack at my sisters house she’d asked for the Dove Card in the Idea Book and Catalogue for the Wish for Peace stamp set and no matter what I did I couldnt get a nice result with the card. So I apologised to her and said it was all good as I’d made another card using the Dove stamp.

I just love these papers from the Ski Slope Designer Series Paper pack in the Spring Mini Catalogue. I love the baja breeze and the white swirls and flowers in the design. The stripe panel works well in breaking up all the baja breeze in this card and the olive is a great contrast.

Now as I was finishing off this card another patterned paper caught my eye and you’ll be glad to know that its from the same Ski Slope Designer Series Pack.

  1. Leonie,

    I agree that the second version of the Christmas Dove is prettiest with more red on it. Of course, I wouldn’t refuse either as they are both beautiful.
