Good morning and Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all! We’re having a bit of a….week. Epic storm on Monday night – and lightning hit our well house. And set it on fire. And knocked out the water. And scared me sorta silly! 😳😳😳 So – we spent last night at a hotel and may be doing the same tonight. We DO have AC (thank you God) but…no water. In July. In Georgia. Nope nope nope. This spoiled first-worlder NEEDS her shower! 😉
In the midst of the chaos – while waiting for one contractor after another to come assess the damage and give us estimates (both of the $$ and -more importantly the TIMELINE!) I put together a soft and pretty Christmas card for you! It showcases the Peace To You stamp set and a teensy snowflake image from the Christmas Lights stamp set. Take a look-see:
The layout for this one is from the Global Design Project sketch challenge this week.
…and the color palette is from the TGIF Color Challenge.
I started with a piece of Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP in Soft Sea Foam that I matted on Blushing Bride for the card front.
Next, I adhered two Wonderful Snowflakes – YES, they’re back!! whoo-hoo!! – to the card front with Liquid Glue.
On a piece of Flirty Flamingo cardstock, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the sweet snowy church from Peace to You in Versamark Ink. Then I sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it with my Heat Tool.
When the embossing powder had cooled, I used my Paper Snips to cut out the image.
I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the image to the card front.
On a piece of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the Peace to You sentiment in Blushing Bride. Then I cut it out with a narrow banner die from the Stylish Shapes die set.
I used a Stampin’ Dimensional and some Liquid Glue to adhere the sentiment to the card front.
Finally I added some Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels, and the card front was done!
On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Peace to You in Blushing Bride on a Basic White panel. Next to the sentiment, I stamped the tiny snowflakes image from Christmas Lights in Soft Sea Foam ink.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Blushing Bride mat and into my Smoky Slate card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.
My Basic White Medium Envelope got more of the Christmas Lights snowflakes in Soft Sea Foam on the front…
…and more of the Soft Sea Foam Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! I love the simplicity of the two focal images and the sentiments in Peace to You – they’re simply perfect for the season! And there’s WAY more to the Christmas Lights set than the sweet little snowflakes I’ve used here and you’re going to be happy you have it!
Want to see how this one came together? I did a super quick video of it and you can see that right HERE!
I hope you like!

So – I might have mentioned that we had one heckuva a storm on Monday night.
With lightning like crazy.
Like – wrath of GOD stuff.
And we ended up with a fire in our well house. And it was terrifying.
And I discovered – as I was making a mad dash up the driveway to open the gate for the fire trucks – we ALSO had a ginormous tree down – right smack dab across the driveway. Fortunately the barn road – the one the trucks REALLY needed to take – was clear!
Skip to later that day. Fire out. Water out. Tree…still very much down.
Finn and I walked up to inspect the damage.
Finn confirms that the tree is, in fact, blocking the driveway!
He’s pretty observant, huh?!? 😉
