Peace Dove with Floral

Hello friends - welcome back on this inspirational Monday ☺

I have a Christmas card featuring the Holiday Dove w/ Floral die from the Christmas Part 2 release at The Scrapping Cottage!

I played in the color challenge at Splitcoast Stampers again (#CC921):

I got out my Let It Snow 6x6" paper pad from Doodle Bug Designs and found a paper that had all those cute colors in it!  So even though it is flowery, I think it totally goes with this beautiful die!

 Anything Goes with an optional twist: Use patterned paper
And I played in the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #187


• Thick White Cardstock -  5-1/2" square, top folding card base
• Flowery paper from Let it Snow -  5-1/4" square 
• Pink Hearts paper (oldie from SU!)  -  4-1/8" x 3-7/8"
• White Cardstock - Die cut largest of the Nested Scalloped Rectangles *With the extended cut technique to make it slightly larger than the Heart paper
• White Cardstock - Die cut the largest of the Nested Stitched Scallop Circles set

• Die cut the Holiday Dove w/ Floral from the following cardstock colors: 
 White / Granny Apple Green / Melon Mambo / Bermuda Bay

***Use my card photo at top to assemble your layers***

 I colored the beak, flower centers and dove with Copic marker on the white die-cuts.  Then I gave the Melon Mambo flowers some shadows with a Copic marker and white gel pen highlights.  

I popped the dove onto my scalloped circle with foam dots and then I glued the branches and flowers behind. 

I die cut the "peace" from the Peace and Joy Wreath and glued it to the bottom of the scalloped circle.

 I finished it off with some pretty silver half beads. ☺

Stunning card, Kristine! The colors work perfectly for a non-traditional look for Christmas and your die cut spray around the dove looks sensational! Love it! Thanks so much for sharing with us this week at the Tic Tac Toe Challenge!
A delightful card Kris - love your die cuts, and the slightly unconventional colours work beautifully on this gorgeous creation
