Global Design Project #GDP006 & CAS Challenge #74 - Dove of Peace

Hello and welcome back to my blog today. Today I have made a card for two blog challenges, Global Design Project #GDP006 and Addicted to CAS Challenge # 74. Both these challenges will be below.

I had to change the layout on the GDP project  as I wanted to use the Dove of Peace stamp set from Stampin' Up! and I think it just looked wrong the other way, though maybe that's just my brain! I also wanted to use my Winter Wonderland vellum stack too. I haven't used any of the white and gold vellum pages before and thought they'd look good with the detail of the dove stamped in Gold ink.

Here is my card.

Here is a closer view of my card. As you will know. if you have worked with vellum, it can be a bit tricky to adhere the vellum to cardstock without the adhesive showing through! In my case, I have used glue dots in the corners and placed a candy dot over them to disguise. The area under the sentiment can be glued down with regular snail because it's covered over.

I have used a retired stamp set called "Curly Cute". Of course this can be substituted for a current sentiments, but I love this one!

The two challenge blogs I've used are below.



Here are the supplies I've used are as follows.
