Peace at Christmas

I have made a Christmas card with a new Simon Says Stamp die set and stencil, from their new  Cozy Hugs release, along with a CZ Design sentiment die set from a previous release...
 I had had the berry branch and leaves made for a while, but I just couldn't figure out how to use them on a card.  My heart is broken for, but though broken, so with the people of Ukraine...peace for them is all I can think of, so I chose peace as my sentiment, and the rest followed.  I die cut the branch and leaves from white cardstock and colored with markers.  I used red cardstock berries, and used tonic drops on each berry.  I slightly bent each of the leaves for dimension.  After a number of attempts to use the berries on a bunch of cards with a bunch of different layouts, I had the thought for what you see above.  I used white embossing paste on the Snowfall and Banks stencil, embossing the stencil twice to have enough snowed cardstock to go behind the sentiment panel as well as above and below it.  The stencil has the "banks" on one end of the stencil, so it is not a total 6" of snow stencil.  Hope that makes sense?!  I die cut the "peace" outline part of the die from a white panel, die cut a layered the actual sentiment, and popped up on the snow panels, having silver borders on the top and bottom.  I adhered the berries to the right of the sentiment.  Here is a close up...
I hope you are having a great week...I don't know about you, but I love the weekends, and only two more days til the weekend...can't wait!!
