I absolutely love Graphic 45 paper and the Blossom 8x8 paper is gorgeous! So many pretty florals- so easy to make pretty cards!
I have a personal goal of designing a card using one of the Splitcoaststamper sketches and I decided to use a modified version of the SC431 sketch for the layout on this card (I made layer #4 an oval and did not add the little brads on the left of layer #5).
I am also linking this card to the Word Art Wednesday #527-#528 "Anything Goes" Challenge.
The main floral image is one of the cut-a-parts from the Graphic 45 Blossom 8x8 paper pad and it was layered onto dark blue cardstock before layering again onto white cardstock.
The sentiments “REJOICE” along with the Romans 10:9 verse (both from the He Lives stamp set) were stamped onto white cardstock with archival black ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
The "REJOICE" was die cut with the Fishtail Sentiment Banners die set and the Romans 10:9 verse was die cut with the Hemstitch Oval die set (using just the medium oval die without the hemstitch inner die).
To construct the card, trim two pieces of the Blossom 8x8 paper, distress the edges and adhere to a dark navy card front.
Die cut a piece of white cardstock with the Tim Holtz Crochet Die, adhere to the lower part of the background panel.
Add a piece of navy ribbon to the card front, then add a strip of sage twill ribbon- wrap the ends behind the panel.
Mount the rectangle focal image to the card front with dimensional foam, adhere the banner sentiment, mount the verse sentiment with dimensional foam before mounting the card front onto a white card base.
Finish off the card with a few pearls to the upper right hand corner of the card, lower left of the focal image and lower right of the sentiment.
