The Pure in Heart

Guess whose camera made it back home!!  Yup, mine :)  My thanks to the kind people who saw to it’s safe return.  I didn’t waste a moment photographing a card I had ready to show.  Sporting new Our Daily Bread Stamps, this is one of the new August releases called Jesus.  Layering a couple of Spellbinders die templates, I started with Spellbinders Classic Frame, Spellbinders Labels 5, Spellbinders Classic Ovals Large and Spellbinders Classic Ovals Small.  The elegant border along the bottom is Spellbinders Grand 12" Classic Lace Border.

To begin, I laid down the Grand Lace border.  Once cut, I layered the frame, followed by Labels 5 and topped it with the ovals. With the paper still in my Spellbinders die template (on Labels 5 and Ovals), I traced the inside of the template with a gold pen just to add some additional framing. 

Card Recipe:
Stamps:  Our Daily Bread Designs
Paper:  K & Co., The Paper Company
Ink:  Colorbox Chalk Ink – Wisteria
Spellbinders Classic Frame, Spellbinders Labels 5, Spellbinders Classic Ovals Large , Spellbinders Classic Ovals Small, Spellbinders Grand 12" Classic Lace Border, gold pen, gold Ribbon, pearls

 I hope to be back later today with some CHA pictures, better late than never, hunh?

    Hi Becca, your cards are simply beautiful! I noticed that you use CS from The paper company. However the ones I’ve seen in Michaels or Joann seem to be very thin but yours look very sturdy. Would you mind sharing where you get them from?ReplyCancel
