Peace, Hope & Joy card ...

Sometimes you need a card which is larger because it is for a special occasion or you need lots of people to sign it.  Today I have a project to share with you that uses our new  8" Square (20.3 sq cm) Scalloped White Cards and Envelopes  

To recreate the card ...

Start with a '&' which you have printed off the computer in a nice font.  I used 'CG Times' and sized it to '500' points. 

Cut out and place this over the card towards the top right and fix it with REPOSITIONABLE adhesive {careful not to use too much as you will need to pull the '&' off afterwards}.

Stamp the TRENDY SNOW CLEAR STAMP over the whole card with  DISTRESS INK - PUMICE STONE

Once dry use some coordinating Distress Markers to create a splatter effect.

{to create a splatter effect - scribble the markers, one at a time onto an acrylic block, add water with a paintbrush and flick the end of the brush over the card - let one colour dry before adding another}

Once the background is dry remove the '&' sign carefully and add some ALPHABET CARD STOCK STICKER  letters to spell out the words 'Peace', 'Hope' and 'Joy.

  PAPER FLOWERS - PASTEL were added to the bottom right hand corner of the card.

Before adding them I splattered the flowers with the Distress markers and left to dry.

The holly leaves were created with a SINGLE HOLLY LEAF PUNCH

The middle of the flowers were created with 10mm GLITTER DOMES - WHITE

{I added a little Forest Green marker pen around the base of each of the glitter domes before adding them to the centre of the flowers}.

The holly leaves and petals were edged with STICKLES - GLITTER GLUE - DIAMOND

Finally add some organza ribbon around the spine of the card and attach 3  MINI BELLS  to the middle of the bow with some silver ribbon.

Hope you enjoy!
