CAS The Mighty God
I hope all of you had a wonderful weekend!
I am still working on my Christmas cards and created a group of Clean and Simple (CAS) Christmas cards using the Freshly Made Sketches FMS216Sketch along with the 4 Crafty Chicks “Non-Traditional Christmas Colors” Challenge.
Again, if you have not already visited the above sites, I hope you will take a moment to do so- wonderful inspiration from all!
A few weeks ago in our Awana club, I taught a two-week lesson on the Names of Christ and Isaiah 9:6 is one of the verses we focused on for the lesson.
I just love this stamp and created Christmas cards for each of "my girls" using their favorite colors (in addition to the Elegant Eggplant, I also used Melon Mambo and Old Olive). These cards will accompany a coordinating Post-It® Note Holder along with a matching covered notebook as their Christmas gift this year (will share more of the project later this week) :-)
To create this CAS card:
Ink the Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD) The Mighty God stamp using Versamark™ and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, apply Stampin’ Emboss® Silver Embossing Powder, heat set with the Heat Tool and once the image has cooled, carefully cut around the frame.
Use the Big Shot™ along with the ODBD Layered Lacey Squares Die (largest square) and cut as well as emboss the die cut from Brushed Silver cardstock. Hand-cut this square in half and adhere one half behind the focal image.
***FYI- I also cut a square of miscellaneous white cardstock to layer behind the embossed image and die so when this layer is added to the card front with dimensional foam, you would not be able to see shadows through the Whisper White cardstock :-) ****
Emboss a piece of Elegant Eggplant cardstock using the Big Shot™ with the Boho Chic Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, trim and mount onto a piece of Brushed Silver cardstock.
Add the polka dot embossed Whisper White panel to the Elegant Eggplant card base, add the Elegant Eggplant embossed panel and mount the focal image with dimensional foam to finish off the card.
