Peaceful Season

Scrolling through Bloglovin’, I came across the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown challenge sketch (sketch image below). I need holiday cards, so I sat staring at all my new holiday stamp sets and designer series paper. I really wanted to use designer series paper for the smaller squares, and I didn’t want dsp that was too busy. The Peaceful Place designer series paper was just what I needed for this card. I ended up getting the Peaceful Place suite because the other suites I wanted were sold out when I went to place an order with SU!. It is not a suite that grabbed my eye at first. But I am very happy I “got stuck” with it! I bet I’m not the only person that has had that happen! The paper is amazing, with silver foil on it. I picked the papers that had silver foil stars and snowflakes on them. The foil stars/snowflakes do not sure up in the pictures at all, sorry. Basic Greg and Smoky Slate are definitely underused colors in my collection. The card base is Basic Grey 4.25” x 4.25”. I would have liked to use the “May you enjoy the peace of this beautiful season” on the outside, but that was just too big of a sentiment for the outside of the card. So inside the card it went, with a simple “Wishing you the best” on the outside. The sentiments have beautiful scripting. I really am taken by the simple beauty of these cards. Makes me want to find a friend with a cabin that I can visit this winter! 😉
