AH 444 - Peace Slimline

Welcome to Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge 444!

This week, the sketch is a slimline format and I chose to do a horizontal slimline card. 

I love non-traditional colours for Christmas so I began with a set of slimline layering stencils to create the outline. I chose an unusual combination of purple, green and gold. That piece was die cut and the letters were based on the colours from the border. I wanted to use large letters as shown in the sketch and pulled out an old alphabet stamp set. The letters were stamped with Versamark and embossed in gold. They were coloured using the same colours that were used for the floral border. I embossed a piece of gold foil and die cut a stitched border to go under the frame. A small sentiment was stamped and embossed and some embellishing thread was added underneath. 

Come and join us at Atlantic Hearts and show us how you interpret the sketch shown above.
