Peace on Earth (Rachelle Green)

Peace on Earth
by Rachelle Green

Not only is this my version of a Clean & Simple card, it's also my first Christmas card of the year. This is a first for me because I'm always down to the wire when it comes to making Christmas cards. Maybe I'm starting a new tradition? We'll see.

As always when I receive my Frantic Stamper dies I'm like a kid on Christmas morning. I rip into the packaging and then the creative juice shift into overdrive. When I saw the Three Wise men Silhouette die I knew I wanted to try Clean & Simple. I knew I had stamps in my stash that would the die would be the perfect complement to.

Selecting the papers were now problem at all. I used a corner punch a couple of stamps and voila! It took a couple of tries to get the placement right and when doing Clean & Simple there is not much opportunity to to hide mistakes! I used the new "Peace" die cut in silver foil paper to be eye catching. As I was trying to keep embellishments of a minimum, I sprayed the entire card with a blast of glitter spritz.

I like the way it turned out so much I might use it as the cards I send out for the season. Finally, I'd like to say that as usual I am super impressed at the accuracy at when the Frantic Stamper dies cut. I have never had a bad cut as I have had with other dies. If you have not tried Frantic Stamper dies you are missing a treat. With the assortment continually growing you are sure to find something you'd like!
