My Life Scripture

Philippians 4:4-7 (ESV English Standard Version) Holy Bible
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let the reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds through Christ Jesus.

Cut 1 image at 3 inches using chipboard and the Deep Cutting Blade.  Set machine on 2 for multiple cuts (or as needed for chipboard you are using)

Cut 1 image at 3 inches using Cricut Markers and sticker paper using the Regular Cutting Blade

Peel back off sticker paper and place on top of the chipboard image

Using Zig-Zag glue pen, apply glue to the area that you want use glitter.  Be careful to stay within the lines.  Apply each color of glitter separately, allowing to dry between applications.

Use a tri-fold card base.  Cut printed paper to fit each side.  Cut solid white paper to fit each side.  Using a Copic marker and ruler, edge each piece of paper with color (Lipstick Red used for this card).

Use Zots to attach the poinsettia to the left front side of the card.

Add sentiment to the front of the card (or embellishments as desired).  Finish the inside of card as desired.  The back of the poinsettia will need a cover-up.  I used a red flower and cut it to fit.
