Gentle Peace

There is a new stamp set by Stampin Up called Gentle Peace.  I saw this set and new my blendabilities would be coming out to recreate a stained glass window.  I created the stained glass look using several blendability markers first, then I decided how to turn it into a card.  You might remember this is reverse order from my normal creativity process.  I usually start with the card base and work up.  (When deciding what clothes to wear each day I also start with the shoes and pants or skirt and work my way up.  I’m just weird that way.) I wanted the feature to be Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus so I purposly made the rest of this card very simply.

I found the patterned paper hiding in my Fresh Prints paper stack retired from the last spring.  I thought the pattern reminded me of some of the design work you see in churches, and it was crumb cake, the color I had decided to use for my card base. Stampin Up Gentle Peace Blendability

I toyed with where to place the ‘window’, the center of course was an option, or the bottom but I just liked the look of it over to the right.  However that left a lot of blank space so I pulled out some candy dots for accents.

The sentiment at the bottom was stamped then sponged with early espresso.  I curled it up on one end and down on the other.  The hill side has two stamp dimensionals underneath it to keep the curved look like an old scroll.
