Peace On Earth and Mercy Mild

Happy Saturday Everyone!  Julie here, sharing a Mixed Media Christmas card using the Artistic Outpost Christmastime and Gloria stamp sets along with the ODBD Pierced Rectangles Dies.  All products can be found on Our Daily Bread Designs website.

I absolutely love both of these vintage AO stamps paired together for quick Christmas cards- they are perfect for mailing as well as for your special hand-delivered cards :-)

To create this card, I stamped both the AO  Christmastime background and AO Gloria angel image onto white cardstock with embossing ink, added a bit of gold embossing powder to certain areas, tapped the gold embossing powder off and immediately added silver embossing powder before heating the images with a heat tool. 

I also heat embossed the sentiment from AO Gloria with white embossing powder onto dark brown cardstock and hand trimmed the flag banner.

I mounted the embossed AO Christmastime background onto a die cut and embossed piece of dark brown cardstock (using  ODBD Pierced Rectangles Dies) and fussy-cut the AO Gloria embossed angel.

Once I mounted the layered AO Christmastime panel onto a white card base, I added a bit of looped silver metallic thread along with the AO Gloria sentiment and angel (popped up with dimensional foam) to finish off the card.

If you have time to relax and create a project using your Artistic Outpost stamps this week, we would love it if you would share your creations with us on Artistic Outpost Facebook page!

Thanks for taking the time to stop by today and I hope all of you have a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful week celebrating with your family and friends!

Designer- Julie Gearinger
