Free To Be Me & Artbooking Card

Hello crafty friends,
Hope your Thursday, First day of May is a good one so far. It’s the first day of the new month! Before I get to my crafty inspiration, I wanted to share today’s Psalm reading with you.


ל Lamed
89 Forever, O Lord, 
Your word is settled in heaven. 
90 Your faithfulness endures to all generations; 
You established the earth, and it abides. 
91 They continue this day according to Your ordinances, 
For all are Your servants. 
92 Unless Your law had been my delight, 
I would then have perished in my affliction. 
93 I will never forget Your precepts, 
For by them You have given me life. 
94 I am Yours, save me; 
For I have sought Your precepts. 
95 The wicked wait for me to destroy me, 
But I will consider Your testimonies. 
96 I have seen the consummation of all perfection, 
But Your commandment is exceedingly broad.
Psalms 119: 89-96

What a tremendous passage. I hope that it inspires and blesses you greatly. Now onto my crafty project for today.

I created this card using paper from the new Free To Be Me Paper Collection available this month only through Close To My Heart. It is part of the National Scrapbook Month promotion this month. You can get this paper pack for only $5 with a $50 dollar purchase at Close To My Heart. Just head over and start shopping through my May Online Gathering Link

Here is a closer look at the strip of red paper I stamped with the chevron background stamp from the In The Background Stamp Set. I stamped the sentiment with my olive ink pad and inked around the edges. I used some foam tape to give it a little lift.

Here you can see the arrow. I cut it from the Artbooking and then stamped it with my Crystal Blue ink pad. The decorative note strip was also cut out of my Artbooking cartridge and then stamped with my Cranberry Ink Pad. I also used a Martha Stewart border punch for the white border and some circle punches and a scalloped circle punch for the little decorative accent. Of course you can cut out similar shapes from your Artbooking cartridge.

Here is one final look at the card. I did use a fine tip sharpie marker to draw the faux stitches onto my card as well as some ribbon to tie it all together.
