Peace on Earth

I love this stamp set.  It was a hostess set named Peaceful Season.  Paired with Letters to Santa DSP and some NEW Blushing Bride pleated satin ribbon.  OK.  I'm so not the PINK gal!  But I love this stuff!  Take a peek!

Check out the amazing details & textures on the card!  The blue panel I received through SCS Wish RAK several years ago.  It's pressure embossed with snowflakes on textured CS.  That not really a snowflake.  It's a doily.  SU! has a triple layer doily punch...I tell ya...they look like durn snowflakes.  I have yet to use them as doilies...and why buy a snowflake punch when ya already got a great substitute!?!  LOL.  Saving those FRNs.  ;-)

Speaking of FRNs...everything on this card...I guess...was from stash.  I DID buy the Letters to Santa DSP because I didn't have any Christmas DSP.  The pleated ribbon IS new...but it's more of a's not advertised as being used on Christmas cards.  It's not available for purchase by the general public until January 2, as it's featured in the upcoming SU! Ocassions Mini.

It's so luscious!  I loved rubbing my finger across the pleats...sigh...nice stuff!  Truly.

Inside, I stamped a snowflake trio and a sentiment!  The sentiment is from a virgin stamp set (not seen ink yet) named Season of Simple Grace.

I'm mailing these out in clear envies!  Since I gotta pay an extra 20 cents for the bumps...the brad & ribbons...I'm gonna use a clear envelope!  A first for me, as I've not mailed anything in a clear envelope yet.  It's actually kind of cool.  I received a card with a button in a clear envelope the other day!  Cool!

I made SIX of these.  I think SIX is a good number to "mass produce".  I tried that mass produce thing one year...with embossed images.  I wonder why I have not used EP (embossing powder) lately.  LOL.  I do have some NEW scented EP from SU!  I hope it smells good.  And heck naw...they didn't put out chocolate scented EP.  More like cherry, orange & melon.  Those are summer scents.  Maybe we'll get chocolate next time.  :-D

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a moo'valous day!


  1. Thanks for sharing this lovely card. I think paying extra for that ribbon in a clear envelope is going to be worth the price! The PO employees might enjoy the look as well...just remember...put the card front on the side of the clear envelope that does not have the flap...

    Address the back side of the card with sending address and your return address...attach stamp to the flap of the clear envelope! (It must be on the outside of the envelope or the PO will return it to you...this is not from learned experience...just common sense!)

    Does that lovely ribbon come in purple? Glad you saved those FRN once do a great job of using what you have and not getting taken by the advertisement of the newest!

  2. Love that gorgeous pink ribbon! Love embossing too, such a nice CAS design. Have a great day!

  3. LOVE that ribbon. I will get an order ready for January. I want that stuff!!! This is a great card. I like it every detail of it.

  4. Very Pretty!!!! love the colors and textures!!! I enjoyed reading your description too!!!!!
