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.
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!
