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.

Cards using "Silky Smooth" and "Jewels" by DCWV!

This is the first card in a series that I made using the DCWV stacks "Silky Smooth" and "Jewel".  The cards measure 5 inches x 7 inches (folded).  They will fit an A6 envelope.
This card is made from the "Jewel" stack.  The sentiment, background paper,  and design are cut from the stack.
The ribbon is scrunched up on a strip of double sided tape.
The cards are made from this "Jewel" stack.
The background paper and flower borders were cut from a patterned paper from the "Jewel" stack.  A sentiment and ribbon has been added.
The flower strip is from the "Jewel" stack.  The red background paper is from "The Silky Smooth" stack.  The yellow border is from a Martha Stewart border punch.  Pink fiber was added for interest.

The printed paper is from the 'Jewel' stack.  The green paper is from the "Silky Smooth" stack.  A dark pink ribbon has been woven through holes punched in the top border.  Clear leaf embellishments were added.  The large scalloped border punch is by eksuccess.  The letters are a Cuttlebug Alpha die set.  The 'stitching' is made by using a Sharpie marker.
