Peace

Hi friends.  Bonnie here from Make Time to Craft.  Today I'm sharing a retro card I created with the new Peace Symbol die from the Bohemian Collection that was just released in January from Cheery Lynn Designs.
Isn't the texture on the peace symbol and in the background frame die just fabulous?!!
My card base is 4-1/4" x 5-1/2".  I backed a piece of aqua paper with Stick It adhesive and ran it though the die cutting machine for the background Bohemian Paisley Frame die and then adhered it to jade cardstock.   I then added some layers from bottom up, trimming each to leave a small border, ending with the paisley frame.
I then cut the peace symbol in aqua shading just a bit with distress ink to really bring out the details.  I mounted it on a cream circle just a tiny bit bigger and used the burble/cheesecloth embossing plate on that to add some texture.  These were adhered together and then added on a jade circle that left just a small border.

The word Peace was cut in cream and jade so I could offset and stack them for a shadow effect.  Before I did that, I inked the word for a bit on am ombre effect.

Cheery Lynn Dies used:

The pretty bi-color bow was created on my Bow-it-All Tool using Turquoise and Coral Rose Delicate Stitched Satin ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope I've inspired you to try some of the dies from the NEW Bohemian Collection.
