Peace card


Make It Monday at PTI features the artistry of Melissa Phillips, 
who wowed us with 3 gorgeous samples of wreath building, found here:


I must be slipping because I only have a couple of wreaths to work with,
one being the die Melissa used. Found this one (Enclosed Wreath), 
and had some fun with building my card around it.


Had to go with pinks, in honor of Melissa, and her incredible talent with pastels!

Embossed my die cut 4 times with Stampendous Shabby Green EP,
and sponge inked and stamped the Doily Tag Base with Beautiful Berries: Winter.
2 colors for the fern: Mint Julep & Green Parakeet.
2 colors for the berries: Berry Sorbet & Pure Poppy.

Background is stenciled with PTI's Polka Dots, Sweet Blush on Sweet Blush cardstock.

A peek on the inside


It's so much easier to finish the inside while the stamps are on my table,
one less step when addressing my cards.


Loved this technique, and plan to do several cards using these stamp sets...
while they're still handy on the table!

Thank you Melissa, and thank you for visiting,
Happy Crafting!

  1. Utterly breathtaking! I do love it when great minds (ours) think alike. I was wishing I had a nice wide piece of ribbon for my card but it worked out okay. Love this card, Nancy. So beautiful....

  2. This is just so beautiful Nancy. I like the soft fading dots on the background. It seems to make those stunning berries stand out even more. Cheers.

Lovely, lovely card my friend!! :0)

  4. This is so beautiful! I love how you've combined the wreath with the Winter Berries. I also noted how well that wide ribbon goes with the Doily Tag base. (Now I know what to do with my wide ribbon!!)
