ODBDSLC261 You Will Find Refuge

Hello Friends!

I just love these colors and was able to various shades of the colors for this card celebrating nature with the You Will Find Refuge stamp set with the verse from Psalm 108:1 “I will sing and make music with all of my soul”.   

My husband and I love to watch birds and the black capped chickadee is one of our favorite birds that are regulars at our feeders every day.  They are very inquisitive and brave for such a small bird not to mention handsome in their black, white and gray feathers- just so cute!

To create this card:

Cut a piece of the Christmas Collection 2015 6x6 Paper  using the frame from the Vintage Flourish Patterns Dies and position over a piece of Hunter Green cardstock using a zigzag stitch on the sewing machine to attach the die cut.

ODBD Stamp Sets: You Will Find RefugeHoneycomb Mini;
ODBD Dies:Vintage Flourish Pattern Dies, Vintage Labels Dies, Pennant Dies,
ODBD Paper: Christmas 2015 6x6 Paper Collection 
Add the 5/8” Early Espresso Satin Ribbon strip and mount the panel onto a  piece of Soft Suede cardstock.

Stamp the chickadee image from You Will Find Refuge using Stāz-On® Jet Black onto White cardstock, color using Stampin’ Write Markers- Basic Black, Basic Gray, Soft Suede, Cherry Cobbler and Sahara Sand for the shadows.

Use the Honeycomb Mini stamp with Ranger® Tim Holtz® Old Paper Distress Ink to fill in part of the background and cut the image out with the Vintage Labels Dies (also cutting two additional dies the same size- one each from Mossy Meadow and Early Espresso cardstock.

Split the Mossy Meadow and Early Espresso Vintage Labels Die cuts in half and layer behind the focal image die cut.

Add the focal image to the card front panel using dimensional foam.
Ink the verse from You Will Find Refuge using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink, add a bit of the Honeycomb Mini stamped with the Old Paper Distress Ink (as above), cut out with the Pennants Dies (also cutting the same size pennant from Mossy Meadow and Early Espresso cardstock and layer the Mossy Meadow and Early Espresso Pennant Dies behind the verse sentiment.

Add the sentiment to the card front and adhere the 5/8” Early Espresso Satin Ribbon bow.

Mount the entire panel onto the Whisper White card base and finish off the card with a few Pearls.

The bow and pearls are perfect for finishing off this card! Love the outdoor woodland feeling of the chickadee mixed with the bow and pearls too! I don't know that I could have pulled that off but this looks wonderful, Julie!
