Hello and welcome...

This is another card using the freebies from craft magazines

This month's Die-Cutting Essentials, Issue 28, is a die set by Tonic.  There is a dove, sentiment and olive branch

I've made a basic card with the set for today's post but you will be seeing other designs as times goes on

On a 5"x7" white card I masked a border with easy lift off tape.  I then coloured the exposed area with Distress Oxide Inks applying the colours with a blender.  Once coloured I spritzed, all over the coloured area, with water and dried it using my heat tool  

I added a piece of double sided adhesive to white card and die cut and embossed the dove and the sentiment

After I removed the backing sheet from the die cut I sprinkled Glitter Jewels over both the dove and the sentiment

The olive branch was die cut using a piece of left over green card

I only added glue to certain areas of the dove as I liked how the wings were sitting away from the card.  I adhered the olive branch behind the dove's beak and added a tiny black gem for the eye

I inserted a pretty paper to the inside of the card and used a stamp, from October's Making Cards, to stamp another sentiment in black ink
