Challenge me a Christmas Card with Betty Keefe

Welcome to "Challenge me a Christmas Card" for 2018!
My guest today is Betty Keefe, and she has challenged me to make a card using the eclipse technique. You can check out her take on this challenge HERE.

Here's what I came up with:
I made a watercolour panel by stamping and embossing ornament stamps from Newton's Nook and colouring them with Zig markers and water. I then used a die from Papertrey Ink to cut the word "peace" and also cut it from 4 pieces of pale grey cardstock. I layered these up onto a white cardbase, and adhered the coloured die cut on the top, and replaced the little bits from the middle of the letters. I put some Stardust Stickles on the top, then added a white embossed sentiment from Simon Says Stamp "Tiny Words Christmas" on a thin black strip.
 I will be sharing this card at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, where the theme is "Anything Goes".
Thanks for visiting :)


  1. Your card is so gorgeous, Michelle - love love it! I'm so glad we did this challenge again and I particularly had fun doing this one!

  2. I love my friend Betty's card & had to come see what you did! Oh boy--I love your card, too! The Zig coloring is wonderful--another card to case!
