Another stamp that caught my eye in the Holiday Catalog was a beautiful large Dove belonging to the set Calm Christmas…

I love the size of the dove stamp simply because it makes a stunning focal point on a card…and the beautiful patterning on the stamp it makes it a perfect candidate for Heat Embossing to make the design really shine through…

I participated in a Team card swap featuring products from the new Holiday Catalog and this is the stamp set that I decided to use for it, and here is my card…


You can find the stamp set Calm Christmas on pg 26 of the Holiday Catalog or in the online store by clicking HERE

The card base…is Textured Island Indigo cardstock that you can find on pg 28 of the Holiday Catalog – and onto it is layered a piece of Brushed Silver cardstock (pg 156).

The dove…isn’t it gorgeous?  I decided to heat emboss this image and stamped it using Versamark ink, sprinkled on Silver Embossing Powder and set it using my Heat Tool – just GORGEOUS – look at that patterning & shine…


The patterned paper…I attached this to my card base and at the other end added a strip of paper from Winter Frost Specialty (pg 29 Holiday Catalog).

To cover the join between the two pieces, I popped a strip of Island Indigo on top and then added a piece of Silver 1/8″ Ribbon (pg 28 Holiday Catalog) on top.

The sentiment…stamped & embossed using another stamp from Calm Christmas and shaped using the Decorative Label Punch – I then added this to my card using Dimensionals.

The finishing Touch…I tied a little bow using Silver Ribbon and added it to the bottom of the tag which really finished the card off…


My swaps were mailed off today and I cannot wait to see what the other participants made…I will hopefully be able to showcase them here soon!
