Be Still and Know That I Am God

Hi Friends!!

I hope all of you are having a great week so far! I had a chance to create another vintage Mixed Media card and decided to use the Viva La Verve January 2018 Sketch Challenge for the layout.  I pulled out the "new to me" Scripture Medley 1 stamp set (Verve Stamps) along with retired designer paper from Graphic 45 (Botanical Tea Collection).

I am also linking this card to the Try It On Tuesday "My Favorite Things" Challenge (I love using Scripture on the front of my cards plus I love Graphic 45 Collection paper!) , the Simon Says Wednesday “Use Patterned Paper” Challenge and the Tuesday Throwdown #374 “Layer It Up” Challenge.

If you have not had a chance to do so, I hope you will find the time to check out the wonderful Design Team cards at all of the challenge sites- gorgeous inspiration from all!

To create this card:

1). De-static a piece of vanilla cardstock with an embossing powder tool, stamp the verse from Scripture Medley 1 using Versamark™ ink, apply gold embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.  Once the embossing has cooled, die cut with a stitched banner die, mount onto a piece of suede cardstock and trim close to the edge.

2). Trim several pieces of the Botanical Tea designer paper, distress the edges and mount onto a piece of suede cardstock.  Use a sponge dauber with antique distress ink to “age” the paper.  Add the horizontal strip with the striped designer paper (per the sketch) and mount the entire card front to a piece of white cardstock.  Use a flamingo marker to color the edge and adhere to a white card base.

3). Trim a piece of the Botanical Tea Cut-A-Part, mount onto a stitched rectangle die cut piece of suede cardstock and adhere to the card front with dimensional foam.

4). Mount the sentiment onto the card front with dimensional foam. 

5). Add the rolled rose with suede and vellum leaves and the looped twine bow with antique brad.

6). Add shimmer to the rolled rose and floral image with a clear glitter pen.  Finish off the card with a few pearls.
