Gold DCWV Stackaholic Challenge Card

Hello crafty friends,
Hope you’re Thursday is going well. Today I have a simple and elegant card to share with you. First, for those reading along with me in Psalms for the counting of the Omer, here is today’s passage.

ד Daleth
25 My soul clings to the dust; 
Revive me according to Your word. 
26 I have declared my ways, and You answered me; 
Teach me Your statutes. 
27 Make me understand the way of Your precepts; 
So shall I meditate on Your wonderful works. 
28 My soul melts from heaviness; 
Strengthen me according to Your word. 
29 Remove from me the way of lying, 
And grant me Your law graciously. 
30 I have chosen the way of truth; 
Your judgments I have laid before me. 
31 I cling to Your testimonies; 
O Lord, do not put me to shame! 
32 I will run the course of Your commandments, 
For You shall enlarge my heart.
Psalm 119: 25-32

Many blessings to you for taking the time to read and meditate on His Holy Word. Now on to today’s project. As I stated above, it is a really quick and easy card.

Here’s a look at my card. The finished size is 5 x 6.5. I began with a Kraft cardstock base. I then added a pink cardstock mat and then used some beautiful paper from the DCWV – Die Cuts With A View Gilded Paper stack. I followed along with this month’s Stackaholic Sketch challenge.

Here is the sketch for the challenge.

Here’s a side view. This shows the beautiful foil finish of the paper. Gorgeous. I used my  Cricut Artbooking cartridge and cut out the frame with some more of the paper from the Gilded Stack. I inked the edges with my Dessert Sand ink pad I placed the cuts on a corresponding chipboard frame that comes with the Cricut Artbooking Bundle. You get the cartridge, 3 stamp sets and a set of chipboard elements that match cuts from the cartridge.

I then created a border with some cream lace I had in my stash I wanted to hide the mechanics when I used a strip of vellum to mute the layer. I love that you can still see the paper design underneath. I then added some pearl sand some vintage buttons I had in my stash. I used glue dots to adhere the buttons onto the lace. They worked really well for this. I also used some foam tape underneath the frame to give it just a little lift.   The card came together very quickly. I created it for the National Scrapbook Month online crop I participated in. Our challenge was to use the color gold. So the DCWV papers fit perfectly!
