Sun and Shield

Hi there blog friends.  Don’t forget to scroll down to the post I had on March 23rd with the Scor-Buddy blog candy and leave a comment.  It’s winding down and comments will be taken until noon this coming Saturday.  Hard to believe how fast this week went – it’s already Friday!?!  I’ve been working on a tutorial that I may have up this evening and I’m kinda excited about the new technique it covers.  I had to set it aside for a short while to work on this card but with luck I’ll get it finished and posted.  My card today uses the scripture stamp that I submitted for ODBD 3rd Anniversary from Scripture Set #6.

I pulled Spellbinders Fanciful Flight set with these enchanting little butterflies.  I cut them once from design paper and two times from vellum and added them as a 3D embellishment.   I mounted the butterflies on Spellbinders Deckled Rectangles LG and Spellbinders Deckled Rectangles SM and sentiments on Spellbinders Deckled Mega Rectangles LG and Spellbinders Deckled Mega Rectangles SM.  I just love the deckle edges and I just kick myself that I don’t use them more often because they are simply elegant and they look so nice when the edges are distressed. 


Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs – Scripture Collection #6
Paper: DCWV, Bazzill, Vellum
Ink: Colorbox Pigment – Olive, Vintage Photo Distressed Ink
Spellbinders Deckled Rectangles LG, Spellbinders Deckled Rectangles SM, Spellbinders Deckled Mega Rectangles LG, Spellbinders Deckled Mega Rectangles SM, Ribbon, pearls

I’m so blessed that you stopped by.  I hope you are gearing up for a fabulous weekend!!

    I love your card! I really like the deckled rectangles and will have to get them. I agree with you that they work well on cards, especially when distressed as you have. The bow is gorgeous and the dainty butterflies set everything off so nicely. I am sure that the verse has given you much encouragement. It is good to know that we have such a loving and caring God! I know He will continue to bless you.ReplyCancel

    I couldn’t agree with you more Becca about the Deckeled edges. I used to have all sorts of sissors with decorative cuts. The only one I ever used was the deckeled ones. So that’s the only one I’ve kept. I use them often to cut out the sendiment for a card, then I can layer it as much or as little as I’d like. And I don’t have to worry aout the measurements. I just trim around it with my scissors. Thanks for sharing this beautiful card. I love the scripture especially.

    This is a “heavenly” card. The butterflies add such an elegant touch and as always love the sentiment you chose. Still thinking about what I wouldn’t want to be without in my crafting and my friends would probably tell you glitter and glue pen. One friend knows how often I use that glue pen, so she gifted me with 10 for Christmas. Wasn’t that thoughtful? Truly just a little glitter can add sooooo much.ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca, Well today I needed to make a bow and decided to bite the bullet and do it properly, so I copied your ribbon board. It took me a total of 10 minutes to make and to use it to tie my bow. I have RA and it is very difficult for me to tie pretty bows without five hands- hehe. Well, your hand made tool (bow assistant) worked smashingly!!!! Thank you very much for sharing it and your wonderful techniques! May Jesus continue to Bless Us with You!
