Atlantic Hearts 232 - Hope and Peace Flower


Christmas is on its way and will be here before we know it. I have barely started creating my Christmas cards and figured this was as good a time as any to use one of my all time favourite flowers as the focal point for this sketch. 

The border was cut using my Cricut, as was the sentiment piece. I stamped two words using Versamark ink and embossed them in white. The biggest challenge with a card like this is photography - the gold foil paper doesn't look nearly as beautiful in the photo as it does in real life. 


This close up shows the flower and the berries brushed with the gold shimmer brush. It adds such a gorgeous touch to the card.

  1. This is so gorgeous, the red really pops against the gold foil embossed background. Love how you did the sentiment on the leaves and great foliage cut.
