  • Light-green card stock

  • Circle cutter

  • Ruler

  • Bone folder

  • Craft knife

  • Gold trim

  • Wide-tip glue pen

  • Glitter

  • Dove craft punch

  • Personal photo

  • Double-sided tape


  1. Print the card template on light-green card stock.

  2. Line up the center of the circle cutter with the logo in the center of one of the circles, and cut according to the measurement marked. Repeat for the second circle on the template.

  3. Score inner lines of template, using a ruler and bone folder. Cut out card.

  4. Embellish edges of card by attaching gold trim with craft glue.

  5. Cover a small square of card stock with thin glue (we used a wide-tip glue pen). Sprinkle with glitter and allow to dry. Punch the glittered card stock with a dove craft punch.

  6. Secure glittered dove to card with glue, placing its beak over the branch on the front of the card.

  7. Cut a photo with the circle cutter slightly larger than the inner circle of the card. Secure photo to the inside of the card with double-sided tape so that it shows through the two circle windows of the card.
