Rudolph Days - Peace with Gold Dove and Tassel

Jetta has been such a sweet companion kitty for me since I lost my Shy-Cat. <3 <3 <3 

Hi, Friends......

I am here with a quick and easy Christmas card I made for Rudolph Days at Scrappy Mo's. I was digging through my Christmas stash and came across this patterned paper that had caught my eye many months ago. It's not specifically designed for Christmas, but I thought it would make a pretty holiday card with butter-colored cardstock. 

 I added a gold-toned dove from a dollar store pack....(6 ornaments for a!!)....and put a layered Winnie & Walter - Peace die cut over the top. I love making cards with these big flashy ornaments. You can see some I made last year using reindeer HERE.

My tassel was inspired by the challenge over at Archi-scraps this month. I searched YouTube for a tutorial and it was pretty easy to make...even for me!! :)  I've been meaning to use some of my old stash of embroidery floss on my cards and this gave me a great opportunity. I used to do a lot of counted cross-stitch (back when I could see better!!!) and have a big collection of different colors of floss still left from that hobby. Yay for me for using some of it!! lol...
Supplies used include:
Scraps of DCWV patterned and solid cardstock
Dollar Store gold-toned dove
Winnie & Walter - In a Word: Peace Cutaway die
DMC embroidery floss
