Christmas Dove

Taylor’s Sketch Samplers are back today, and I had fun getting inky! Christmas crafting calls for simple elegance, and I loved this sketch for that! I pulled out two of Taylor’s Christmas sets (Sparkle & Cheer and Winter Wonderland) and went to town.  I already have the stamped panels ready for 4 more of these cards on Saturday morning.  Yeah!

My dove and sentiment are stamped with Dark Chocolate ColorBox Chalk ink on a shimmery ivory cardstock. The snowflake in the dove and the snowflakes down the top right side of the card are accented with Taylor’s Crystal Twinkles. The bottom layer of kraft with snowflakes was stamped with Winter Wonderland. Patterned paper is from Echo Park.

I hope you have a chance to visit the other Sketch Samplers today. I know they’ll have something extra sweet for you.

Wishes for a happy weekend! We are in the middle of some updating in our home, and I’ll be painting my entry tonight. I have some time carved out for crafting on Saturday, and we’ll be enjoying Thanksgiving with our church family on Sunday. Bring on the weekend!

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. That dove is beautiful, I love this card. Although the act of painting isn’t always fun, there is no fresher, cleaner feeling than a room that has just been painted. Have fun.
