For my Christmas cards this year I chose to use Calm Christmas (clear 132739) $14.95 from the 2013 Holiday catalog. I first tried it in the combination of Melon Mambo and Elegant Eggplant.
Calm Christmas #132739 clear $14.95
Melon Mambo #115320 $6.95
Elegant Eggplant #105126 $6.95
Very Vanilla #101650 $8.50 (40 sheets)
Elegant Eggplant #126969
Pretty Print Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #132175 $7.95, Scallop Trim Border Punch #118402 $15.95, Dimentionals #104430 $3.95
Take your 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Melon Mambo and use Pretty Print Textured Embossing Folder on half of it.
On your 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 pc. of Very Vanilla stamp the dove at a slight angle up. Attach to a 4 x 4 pc. of Elegant Eggplant. Stamp "Peace on Earth" on a 1 x 2 1/2 pc. of Very Vanilla. Use Scallop Trim Border Punch on a 2 1/2" strip of Elegant Eggplant and attach behind bottom piece of "Peace on Earth". Use dimentionals to attach 4x4 piece to card base and dimentionals on back of small piece. For the inside I cut a piece of white paper 4 x 5 1/4 and attached to inside of card. Stamped the sentiment and leaf.
Card below is done the exact same just the colors are different. I used Night of Navy and Cherry Cobbler with Whisper White.
