...and lean not on your own understanding. This has been a favorite scripture of mine since my little toe headed 3 year old came home with this as her memory verse from pre-school. I was delighted that each time she recited it she would leeeeeeeean way over while standing on one leg! giggles! Precious 38 year old memory! and a lifetime of application.
My card was inspired by Anita Bowden's card at the Muse. I loved her design and especially the background she created.
I decided to try a new technique I learned about on Lin's Craft Corner in this post. Not long after seeing Gina K's video of the technique on Stamp TV I enjoyed seeing more beautiful cards created using this technique from Verna on VA's Creative Clutter blog. Please follow the links to see these two Blogland friend's great cards.
I created several different panels using three different embossing folders. I colored each one a little bit different.
This one I colored to match the pretty color challenge at ColourQ.
I simply cut my square panel using my dies from Lil Inkers and attached it to my card. Then I stamped my sentiment and added the die cuts! easy peasy. I also used scraps from the colorful panel and added them to the inside of each card. They were cut with a border die also from Lil Inkers.
We are not enjoying our weather in the Black Hills this weekend. It is currently "drizzling" a fine mist of snow LOL but sunny skies are predicted for later in the week and we need the precipitation so I will just snuggle in and enjoy soft lighting while I craft! : )
Thank you all so much for the help with my Wink of Stella question yesterday! I think I will stick with this product - flaws and all - for a while longer because I just love the soft glitter it leaves. : )
Have a great weekend!
