 Looking for that simple idea for a holiday card this year? Something suitable for everyone on your list? This is the card. Simple, elegant, colorful, and easy to make in large quantities.  Here are the steps:

1) Cut and fold silver cardstock to create card base.
2) Run panel of white cardstock through embossing machine with Dreamweaver Stencils' Cathedral Window, and adhere to card.
3) Use Jumbo Dauber to apply Versamark ink through the Open Bird stencil on watercolor paper panel.
4) Apply Clear Embossing Powder and heat to emboss.
5) Spritz panel with Blueberry Shake, Turquoise, and Iridescent Memories Mists at an angle, and let run off. Set aside to dry. The embossed area will resist the inks.
6) Mask off extra expressions of Comfort Words stencil, and paste-emboss "peace" in Silver Embossing Paste on panel. Set aside to dry.
7) Adhere panel to card.

Pam...this is a beautiful card. I was glad to read how you did the background of color behind the dove. Didn't realize it was the memories mists.
