Peace on Earth

Hi there, Stampin' Friends! Oh, what fun I had creating this one!! This card was inspired by Claudia Manderla.  She posted a photo on Stampin' Connection (A Stampin' Up! Demo only of the many benefits of being a demonstrator) and I thought it was adorable. You may view her blog here.  Her Aug. 6th post entitled "Shabby Chic" was the beginning of my card.  I changed up the stamp sets, size of my pages, color combo and embellishments and came up with this....

No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't capture the dimension in this card. It is so different in real life.  Here are a few close ups...

                                                                   The Left Side:
 The 'globe ornament' is rounded: attached only along the outer edge with Tombow liquid glue and a dimensional in the middle of the ornament.

                                                              The Right Side:

The pages are stamped, distressed, sponged, and connected in the middle with linen thread and they open up on both sides.

And last but not least here is a photo of the inside all decorated up too!  The Postage Stamp was created using the stamp a ma jig and the stamp "Sharing with you the Glory, Wonder, and Miracle of this Holy Season" and the Midnight Muse marker.
