Peace On Earth

Hello crafty friends and welcome back!  So I've decided that I really need to show some much needed love to all of my older stamps and supplies that I have and that are just as amazing as all the newer stuff.  And I also need to get a start on some Christmas cards, since they will be even more important to send out this year.  So today I have a CAS (clean and simple) card to share with you all doing just that...using some older products on a Christmas card.

Today's card is a more simple card that doesn't use a lot of supplies, but it is oh so beautiful! I wanted it to have a very peaceful and calm feel to it, so all white it would be except for the sentiment.  So to create this card I cut out 2 hills using my stitched hillside borders from Lawn Fawn. I love them in white as it makes them seem as thought they are covered in snow.  Next I used the Village die set from Simon Says Stamp for the houses and the trees. 

I added the snowy hills to my white card front and arranged and tucked the houses and trees just slightly under the tops of the hills.  I then heat embossed my sentiment, which went perfectly with this peaceful and beautiful winter scene, in platinum embossing powder.  All that was left to do was to add my snow.

I wanted the snow to appear as if it was falling over the entire village, so that is why I waited until the card was finished to add the snow.  I used some Ranger Matte Texture paste and a Falling Snow stencil from Simon Says Stamp and added the snow over the whole card front but avoiding going on top of the sentiment.  And that's it!  I absolutely love how this turned out!  It has such a peaceful and serene feel to it and that is definitely something we need right now in our lives. But I must add, that trying to photograph an all white card is so hard to do, so I tried to the best of my ability to show it the best that I could.  It is such a beautiful and perfect winter scene!

I hope that you love my card much as I do!  I'd love to hear what you think down in the comments.  Thank you for popping by today and spending a bit of time with me and my peaceful winter village!  I also am adding this card to a few card challenges.  Below you will find the links to them.
