Peace Dove

In the past week I have made cards to play in at least 7 different challenges but have consistently seemed to forget to post them before their deadlines.  I could just blame it on pregnancy brain but that would probably not be 100% accurate.  It's more like busy-holiday-brain taking the blame this time.

At any rate, this card still plays for the following challenges:
Daring Cardmakers White Christmas card challenge
Charisma Cards Anything Christmas
Creative Card Crew #39 Christmas theme
Practical Scrappers Christmas Cards
The Cuttlebug Spot Winter theme
Materials used on this card:

White and Kraft cardstock
Cuttlebug embossing folders: 2009 Snowflakes and Divine Swirl
Spellbinders Nestabilities Label dies
Long-Needle quilling awl (for hole-punching; this is in my top 3 most-used tools)
All stamps from PrintWorks Clearly Defined Christmas set
Ranger Superfine Metallic Gold heat-embossing powder
Butcher's twine from WalMart
Stemmed wedding pearls
Sewing machine
For distressed paper edges, I do not own a special tool...I am a big believer in multipurpose solutions.  My large scissors work perfectly well held at an angle so that they only tear at the paper's edge as I rub back and forth.  If you press harder on the blade, it will slightly curl up the edges of the paper, as you can see especially on the sentiment.

Have a great day all, and thanks for visiting!
