Peace & Joy

Hi everyone! I hope you're having a super duper week!

Today is day three of the Newton's Nook Design holiday release. All of the sets will be for sale on Friday (10/18) at the store.

We're sharing projects using the Holiday Wishes set. I gave a sneak peek of this set on THIS card. I love having versatile sentiment sets, and this one is great! Here's the card I made using the set:

I was going for a rustic Christmas card, but I *had* to add in some metallic elements. I started by splattering some Mr. Huey's Opaque White on the card and stamping snowflakes from the Newton's Holiday Mischief set.

For the sentiment, I heat embossed the "peace" and "joy" from the Holiday Wishes set. I finished off the card by die-cutting the tree on my Cameo and adding a silvery tree topper and some glitter to the limbs. Here's a close-up:

Yep, it's hard to see the sentiments. Sorry! You can see the sweet snowflakes.

Would you like to win Holiday Wishes? This set will be given away to two lucky winners!
