this week at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ we are attempting to create peace on earth!!!
ok, that might be a bit ambitious. howsabout we attempt to create christmas cards with a "peace" theme, instead? that's a bit more do-able! :) all you have to do to join in is make a holiday card that features a peace sign, the word "PEACE", or evokes a peaceful feeling to you... as conveyed by woodland scene, maybe? or a starry night? or a dove? feel free to go as wild or as tame as you like, just make with the peace, baby!
i went with the word "PEACE" mostly because i found this gorgeously rendered version in my stash of vintage cards:
(vintage christmas cards; patterned paper: my mind's eye, scrapworks; adhesives: tombow monorunner, 3m foam tape, sewing machine)
i cut out the center of the letter "P" in order to incorporate an element from a second vintage card--the beautiful dove! i fussy cut his wings and tail so that it would seem like he was emerging from the card. after that, i *tried* to add a bunch of embellishments, but the card resisted such blandishments and asked to be left in... well, PEACE... so i just stuck on a couple of coordinating mats and called it a day! :)
