God is my Refuge

Hi there! I hope y'all had a very Happy 4th of July! Let me tell you what I did. I made cards all day. Now I just need to get motivated to get them all on my blog. At least I have a good week's worth of blog material now!

It's been too long since I made a card featuring God's word, and I really want to start making more scripture cards. I used the Our Refuge set by Sweet n Sassy Stamps - my favorite place to go to for scripture stamps. I also used this week's Sweet Stop Sketch, SSS115, except I made an A2-sized card instead of a square card. I made a square card with the sketch the other day, so I wanted to do something a little different. I also swapped the image panel to the other side of the card.

I stamped the scripture in Memento Rich Cocoa and cut it out with Classic Rectangle Nestabilities. These beautiful papers are from the Lush collection by My Mind's Eye. I embosed the cream background with the Textile Texture embossing folder, and the border was punched with the Martha Stewart Arch Lattice border punch. I added a ribbon and accented the bow with a brad from the Lush collection, and I adhered a few punched butterflies to finish my card off.

This one is up in my Etsy shop if you'd like to have it!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a great day! :)
