John 3:16 For God So Loved the World
I had a chance to spend some time stamping this evening and decided to create a card using Friday Mashup! FM245 Easter or Sketch Theme Challenge (sadly this will be their final challenge) along with the Splitcoaststampers CC575 Color Challenge and the Word Art Wednesday #222/223 “Anything Goes” Challenge.
I love this verse- the Gospel Message in one verse and perfect for Easter :-)
If you have not had a chance to visit the above galleries yet, I hope you will find the time to do so- wonderful Design Team samples and inspiration from all!
To create this card:
Ink the Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD) Chalkboard John’s stamp with Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Trim the image, mount onto Blushing Bride cardstock, trim and mount onto Mint Macaron cardstock, trim and mount onto Blackberry Bliss cardstock.
Use the Big Shot™ along with the retired Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of retired Blushing Bride Designer Series Paper (DSP).
Lightly sand the embossed DSP, trim and mount onto a piece of Mint Macaron cardstock, trim again and mount onto a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock.
Emboss a scrap piece of Mint Macaron cardstock with the Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, adhere to the card front, add the strips of 3/8” Blackberry Bliss Stitched Satin Ribbon (retired) and the strips of Pearls.
Mount the entire panel onto the 5 ½” square Whisper White card base.
Ink the Boho Cross (ODBD) image using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Color the Boho Cross using Stampin’ Write Markers- Blushing Bride, Blackberry Bliss and Mint Macaron, fussy-cut the cross and use a Basic Black marker to darken the edges.
Use a paint brush to apply Ranger® Tim Holtz® Crazing Distress Medium to the cross.
Mount the focal image panel to the card front using dimensional foam, add the 3/8” Blackberry Bliss triple Stitched Satin Ribbon bow and add Pearls to the corners of the card.
Mount the cross with dimensional foam and add the Pearl to the center to finish off the card.
