Simon Says - Peace On Earth

Happy Friday my friends, I'm sharing a card I made with the Holiday Words Background  and CZ Designs Peace Die from Simon Says Stamp latest release Holly Jolly, a fabulous collection of stamps, stencils and dies to kick start your Christmas makes, which is now available to buy HERE

I decided to make a simple monochromatic Christmas card with just a hint of sparkle from silver glitter card and began by trimming Simon Says Smoke Cardstock to 5.1/4" square. I placed the card in my Tim Holtz Travel Stamp Platform, held in place with a Tim Holtz/Sizzix Sticky Grid Sheet and stamped the Holiday Words Background inked with Simon Says Fog Ink to create a tone on tone effect. I die-cut Peace 4 times from Distress Watercolor card and the Simon Says Village houses and trees from Distress Watercolor card. I fixed 3 Peace die-cuts to the background using Distress Collage Medium Matte, added the houses and trees popped up on Sizzix Foam Adhesive and fixed the last Peace die cut on top to cover where the houses and trees had overlapped the word. I die-cut another house and tree from Simon Says Silver Glitter card and after a little surgery, fixed them in place with Distress Collage Medium Matte. I added Simon Says Kate Snowflakes die-cut from Distress Watercolor card.
I trimmed the panel down slightly using Tim Holtz/Tonic Studios Deckle Edge Trimmer (my new addiction) sprinkled Stampendous Frantage White Chunky Enamel Embossing Powder on the background and heat set from underneath until melted. I inked the Peace On Earth sentiment from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Tiny Text Christmas with Black Soot Distress Archival and stamped on to a scrap of Distress Watercolor Card. I trimmed with Tim Holtz/Tonic Studios Deckle Edge Trimmer and fixed in place with Sizzix Foam Adhesive.

I darkened the deckle edge of the background panel using a black marker and fixed to a 5.1/2" square white card blank, also trimmed with the Deckle Edge Trimmer, I did warn you, no card is safe from me and my new toy.

Have a great weekend whatever you have planned and I'll be back tomorrow to share another card made with the Holiday Words Background.
