peace, part two

we're still celebrating all things peaceful at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ so you have plenty of time to make a holiday card with a peace sign, the word peace, or just a particularly calm and pleasant aspect! here's what i made this week:

(patterned paper: prima; holographic earth image cut from an old greeting card; vintage seam binding from my stash; foreign text chipboard alphas from my etsy shop; ink: colorbox; adhesives: staples brand gluetape runner, 3m foam tape, gluedots, sewing machine) 

i semi-CASED myself this time, or at least, i re-used the same idea as on this card i made in 2012: specifically placing the sentiment, "peace" on top of an image of the earth; and also using the foreign text chipboard alphas from my etsy shop to spell out the sentiment, which i think adds a nice little extra touch. i have the feeling i'll be re-visiting this idea every year, just to see how many different ways i can make it work.

miss stephanie has made a particularly lovely card this week, and there are already quite a few lovely examples in the readers' gallery, so i do hope you'll hop over to ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ and check them out!


  1. Fabulous! Love the color of the ball with the 'peace' on it. Looks great!

  2. Phenomenal card! Love the earth ornament and the text alphas. I peeked at your previous version. It's gorgeous too! I love the idea of revisiting the same idea each year and coming up with entirely different creation.It's amazing how many ways the same elements can be used and yet look so very different!

  3. I love it! Abby fabby colours and the designed is awesome!

  4. So FABULOUS! I adore this - so many meaningful elements working together - beautifully executed!
