Keeping the Peace Blog Hop

Hi Everyone, Welcome to Keeping the Peace Blog Hop. This hop is hosted my Adri of MacherieCreations.  You should have arrived here from Kelsey's site. If you are just visiting my site, please stay and see what I have created. If you want to start at the beginning, please go to Adri's site.

Since yesterday was Earth Day, I decided to combine the two occasions. I created this card on my Gypsy. I used the Give a Hoot cartridge and the Enjoy the Seasons Imagine cartridge. I took two heart shaped "Earth" reversed the shapes and welded them together to create a shaped card. I then used the Enjoy the Seasons to print a pattern for the inside. I also used the same cartridge to create the pattern paper for the "Earth" layers. These pieces were cute at 4 inches. 

On the inside of the card, I used the shadow feature as well as the regular cut for the phrase. Both of these cuts were printed with the pattern paper and then cut on the Imagine. These cuts measure 2 inches. After that, it was super easy to put together.

I used a stamp from the "Go Green" set from Pink by Design. I also used Glossy Accents to create a water effect.

This card started out a simple white cardstock. I used the Enjoy the Seasons Imagine Cartridge to create all of the pattern paper.

Here is the complete list of participants just in case you get lost along the way.
