Stampin’ Up! Dove of Hope Christmas Card

This card features the Dove of Hope Bundle which includes the Dove of Hope Cling Stamp Set and the Detailed Dove Dies at a 10% Discount. My sister and I played with it yesterday and she’s decided to use it for her Christmas card this year. Her version is slightly different and I wished I’d gotten a picture of it to share with you. Alas, maybe you are on her Christmas Card List. Enjoy!

The Paper Cuts

  • Night of Navy Cardstock: 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ and 3 3/4″ x 5″
  • Whisper White Cardstock: Two 4″ x 5 1/4″, a 3″ x 1″ Rectangle Stitched Die and 4 Detailed Dove Dies – body, 2 wings, tail.
  • Old Olive Cardstock: sprig die from Detailed Dove Dies.

The Creating

  • Stamp the sentiments on the Rectangle Stitched Dies die cut and the Whisper White inside panel with Night of Navy Ink. Add 2nd generation dove to the inside panel.
  • Use the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine to emboss the Night of Navy panel with the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder.
  • Adhere the Whisper White panel to the card front and the stamped panel to the inside with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  • Dry fit the remaining elements on the card front.
  • Add the baker’s twine from the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack around the embossed panel and secure in place with tape or glue dots. I know it says it’s black, but when it’s next to the Night of Navy Cardstock it looks navy…I was surprised! (In the “flattened” photo it looks more black than it does on the card – you’ll just have to see it in person.) I liked how it pulled the two colors together better than a plain white ribbon and was a simple embellishment. Glue the embossed panel onto the white panel.
  • I glued the bottom wing, tail section and sprig down with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. The dove body and the sentiment label are popped up with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. The top wing is glued where it touches the body and supported by dimensionals going out.
  • I stamped a 2nd Generation dove on the envelope so it would be between the return address and the mailing address. I added a little Wink of Stella to pull a pale blue into the dove and add some sparkle.
