Come Near To God
I hope you are enjoying your week so far! This evening, I am sharing a card that was designed with the retired Stampin’ Up! Elements of Style along with a verse sentiment from the current Stamp Simply stamp set, Fear Not.
I am slowly working my way through the over 800 Splitcoaststampers sketches and this card uses the SC766 Sketch for the layout.
I am also participating with the Wednesday’s Creative Inspirations Challenge July “In the Garden” along with Word Art Wednesday #448-#449 “Anything Goes” Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to check out the challenge sites yet, I hope you will do so- gorgeous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
Ink the Elements of Style image with Versamark™ Onyx Black, stamp onto white cardstock, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.
Once the image has cooled, watercolor with water-based markers and distress oxide ink.
Using a chevron stencil and a stencil brush, lightly apply distress oxide ink over the background before die cutting with stitched rectangle die, mount onto black cardstock and trim close to the edge.
Mount a piece of textured rose cardstock (approx. 4” x 5 1/4”) to a 4 ¼” x 5 ½” piece of black cardstock. Adhere the mounted floral image directly to the background panel.
Add a piece of dark green organza ribbon (wrapping the ends behind the panel) before mounting onto a white card base.
Heat emboss the sentiment with white embossing powder onto black cardstock, die cut with a stitched circle die. Mount the die cut sentiment onto another circle of black cardstock (to give it a bit more strength) and adhere to the card front with chipboard (or dimensional foam).
Finish off the card with a clear glitter pen adding shimmer to the flower petals.
