MIM #42 -- attempt #2

Happy Thankgiving to all of my American friends & family!

I made another Christmas card for this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: Layered Background with Sentiment Stamps. I had made some one layer cards to sell and on this one, I hadn't been happy when I'd stamped the dove. So I decided to redeem it by diecutting the dove with felt and adding some extra sentiments to the background, as well as some patterned paper.


I used PTI cardstock (rustic white, spring moss), stamps (peace be still, think big favourites #9) and die (peace be still). The patterned paper is Authentique and the little pearl is SU!.

Thanks for looking!

Leigh, this card is great! I have never thought of diecutting a red dove before. Beautiful job with the challenge. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family as well!

Great colors! And i love how the felt dove pops out. Don't you just love it when by "redeeming" or "covering up" a mistake just makes the card/scrapbook page even look better? :) Happy Thanksgiving!
