Let there be Peace on Earth

Hello everyone! I hope you are doing well today. I have a super fun card for you today. I hope from the photos below you will be able to replicate the card too.



You'll notice I stamped both the clear sheet and the patterned paper below the clear sheet using the same image. I did this to create a shadow look. It looks really neat IRL.



I used the pop dot to secure and raise the screw top brad. I actually pierced a hole through the pop dot and placed the brad through it. Notice the edges of the rose coloured cardstock has gold. I used my gold leafing pen to add some interest to the edges and tie in the colours.

Thank you for your help with the double nestabilities! I looked and looked for it myself...I really did, but I just could not find it! Love this card, too! You are amazing!

That is a great idea, I may alter my Christmas card idea now. I was going to use some clear sheets anyhow, but now I may do it differently.

Hi Alli, I really like the way you used the acetate and shadowed the image. I liked it so much that I gave it a try myself! Because I did this, I linked back to you so everyone could see your wonderful work!

Thanks for sharing
