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.

Chevron Print Card Set

This card set was made using Michaels Craft Store "Chevron" prints in the "Recollections" paper collection.
The package contains 5 different 'Chevron' designs with 5 of each design.
The package sells for $4.00 but was on sale for $2.50 when I purchased it.
This A2 card uses the Tim Holtz 'Caged Bird' cutting die.  Gold twine and gemstones are used.
I cut two birdcages, put the bird in the middle and used dimensional foam tape to give depth.
A stamped sentiment, ribbon, and little gemstone bling is used for this A2 card.
It is all about color!  The Tim Holtz rosette die, Martha Stewart 'Button' paper punch, blue embroidery thread, and a Stampin' Up sentiment were used on this card.
Pre-made chipboard flower/butterfly stickers and a Close to My Heart sentiment were used on this A2 card.
Tim Holtz rosette die, a purple button, white embrodiery thread, a ribbon, and a sentiment were used on this card.  The 'Chevron' print was a border on the paper.
The cards will be sold as a set of 6 cards and envelopes.  There are only 5 designs.  I used a small piece of each design on this card.  The card is larger than the other 5 and is created on a black front opening card base (also from Michaels).  I cut slits on either side of the front to slide the ribbon through.
Open card
I covered the back of the inside with white paper.  This hides the ribbon and gives a place to write.  I leave the ribbon untied so the person that purchases the set can tie it as they like.
The set will be packaged in this small cloth bag that I decorated.
