Serene Scene

#stampinup   #faithfulinkspirations   A friend of mine is working overseas for six months serving our country. She's going to be away from friends and family at Christmas. Our office is putting together a care package for her and I wanted to make her a special Christmas card to go along with it. I got my inspiration from this card that Mikaela Titheridge posted a few days ago. Isn't it awesome?!
For my card, I cut a scene from Whisper White Card Stock using the Hometown Greeting Edgelits. I knew Bobbi would appreciate the church and the house. I cut a scalloped oval mat from Powder Pink Card Stock using one of the Layering Ovals Framelits. I cut a Whisper White oval with the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits. I adhered the church strip to the oval frame with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. Next, I cut half an oval from a piece of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper with the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits and used my Paper Snips to give the feeling of drifting snow.

I embossed a 3-3/4" by 5" Whisper White Card Stock panel with the Sparkle Embossing Folder and adhered it to a 3-7/8" by 5-1/8" Powder Pink Card Stock mat. I wrapped a length of Powder Pink Shimmer Ribbon around this and then adhered it onto a Crumb Cake Card Stock card base. I adhered the die-cut oval assembly to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Finally, I stamped a sentiment from the "Hearts Come Home" stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink onto a Whisper White scrap and punched it out with the Pretty Label Punch. I adhered this to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Isn't this such a serene scene? I hope my friend feels the warmth and love from us as she spends some time away.
