I love how this card conveys the Warmth of God’s Peace at Christmas. I feel His peace all year long; however, during the holiday season, it feels even stronger. Hopefully, during this time of year, your heart will be warmed with God’s Peace.
The God’s Peace stamp set is perfect for Christmas. The sentiments are heartfelt, and the glow of the candles can fill your heart with the warmth of God’s Peace at Christmas. I colored the image with the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers from Stampin’ Up! They blend so beautifully and are so very easy to use. I hope you will give them a try!

My card design was inspired by Dawn Griffith
My card partially opened:
I love how the front of the card covers the “Have a Beautiful Birthday” sentiment. But, you can open the card all the way allowing you to write more to the recipient. Also, notice how the stained glass bird helps to hold the front of the card closed. I think that the new Gorgeous Grape is one of my favorite colors and doesn’t the Garden Trellis embossing folder add just the right touch to the overall appeal of the card?
My Birthday card fully opened:
Close up of the stained glass window:
Of course, I have added the Clear Wink of Stella to the Highland Heather areas of the stained glass window. But, when have you known me not to use the Wink of Stella!
