Festive Fridays 1-28

Welcome all to another Festive Fridays.  If you are new to us, sit back and relax and enjoy some wonderful Christmas Cards.  Yes, I did say Christmas.  Festive Fridays will be every other Friday with samples of Christmas cards.  This way, you can be making your cards all year long and you will avoid the mad rush when you could be enjoying the Christmas Season.  You should have just come from Debbie.  If you stumbled upon this post you can go back to Terri and start at the beginning. I will also have a complete list of the Festive Friday hop at the end of this post in case you get lost along the way.

Red Cardstock - Best Occasions Shiny Paper Pack (walmart)
White Cardstock
Baby Blue Cardstock
Cri-kit Gel Pen (Red)
Carts used:
Winter Woodland
George and Basic Shapes

The Cardbase (Red)(Winterwoodland) I cut at 8 1/2 x 5
The Birds (White)(Winterwoodland) were cut at 4.5 x 5
The insides (Baby Blue) were cut at 3.5 x 4.5

First I used my Winter Woodland cart to cut the dove card base in red.  I used my cri-kit gel pens to write the words, LOVE, PEACE and JOY and also the tag Wishing You using my Blackletter Font.  I then cut the dove out around the words.  I cut two pieces of baby blue cardstock and adhered to the inside of the back of the opening and the other piece will go to the right inside.  Before I stuck that on I also drew the dove with my red cri-kit gel pen.  I inked around the dove with silver to give it some dimension.  I glued the one part of the dove directly onto the card base and the other layer I only glued the body down.  It makes the dove look as if it were flying with some dimension.  I adhered the tag to another baby blue piece of cardstock and popdotted it.  I cut a piece of baby blue ribbon and wrapped it around the front of the card and tied a bow to the dove's neck.  I also adhered 3 rhinestones to the bottom of the card for balance. 

This was super easy peasy to make and I am going to enter this card also in the
