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.

Thank you for caring!

I found this adorable rubber stamp recently.
The card was created using lots fun papers, embellishments, and techniques!
All the stamping was done using Martha Stewart Pigment ink, craft paper, clear embossing powder, and a heat embossing tool.
The flower was created with the Cuttlebug, mechanical die cutting/embossing machine, Spellbinders "Spiral Blossom Three" die, and inked edges of the paper.
The paper spiral was rolled using a paper quilling tool.
**Tip**When rolling the spiral, always turn the front (right) side of the paper into the center of the roll.  When the roll is complete, the front/inside of the paper will be seen.
About half way through the rolling technique, I remove the quilling tool and finish the roll with my fingers.  This helps to keep the edges even.
When the roll is complete, lay the roll on a flat surface and let it relax.  The using your fingers, shape the petals to form a flower.  Lift the flower petals and put clear glue on the bottom layer.  Press the flower petals back into place and hold for a few moments.  Allow to dry.
A Sizzix die "Leafy Branch" was used in the Cuttlebug to add leaves to the flower.
Martha Stewart border punch was also used to embellish the card.
**Tip**When using cutting dies, don't discard the negative image.  I plan to use the negative branch image on another project!
The musical patterned paper and brown craft paper are from a set of papers that was in the dollar bin at Michaels Craft Store.  The ribbon and gems are from my stash of embellishments.
