Peace - Inlaid Die Cut

Hi, Friends......

I'm here with a simple card that I made for the Winnie & Walter Belated Birthday Party Inlaid Die Cut Challenge. As you might already know, I am not a big one to use digis or printables. However, Winnie & Walter has a bunch of really fun freebies on their website. That's where I got this image. :) It's from the Daily Grind Collection Vol. 1 - Holiday Mint.

I thought it would look nice as an inlaid scene, so I die cut it with my My Favorite Things Die-namics - Stitched Square STAX die set and cut a corresponding hole in a white background I dry embossed with my Darice - Snowflakes folder. I like the subtle texture the dry embossing brings without drawing too much attention away from the image panel.

This scene looked so peaceful that I pulled out a sentiment from my Mark's Finest Papers - Crisp Winter stamp set and stamped the word PEACE with Versafine - Smokey Gray ink on a scrap of white cardstock that I had die cut with my Inspired by Stamping - Fancy Labels 3 Dies. I sponged the edges lightly with Distress Ink - Pine Needles and put it up on foam squares.

I resisted the urge to do much more to this card because I love the CAS look with all the white....so I didn't add any glitter or heat embossing. I matted with a narrow band of green and mounted it on a white card base.

I am really loving this simple card and I hope you do, too. Please join us over at Winnie & Walter. They have a ton of things going on over there!!! See you soon with more cards.
