TCC186 Trust in the Lord


Hi Friends!

Happy New Year!  I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year Holiday! 

We are back from our Christmas break with our new challenges at The Card Concept starting with the #186 {Holiday Gatherings} Challenge!  

Isn’t this a pretty tablescape?  I was inspired by the colors and textures to create a Shabby Chic and Vintage card and pulled out one of my favorite Scripture stamp sets, Words of Encouragement from Stamp Simply (I love the fonts on this set as well as the companion set, Fear Not).

I also enjoy playing along with other online challenges and will be linking this card to the A Place to Start January 2023 “Anything Goes” Challenge and the Make My Monday #191 “Something New” Challenge (the Craft Consortium “Tell The Bees” paper is new to me).


If you have not had a chance to visit our Design Team/gallery at The Card Concept Challenge, or the other challenge sites yet,  I hope you will find time to do so- gorgeous inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Heat emboss the sentiment from the
Words of Encouragement clear stamp set (Stamp Simply) using Versafine Onyx Black ink and clear embossing powder.

Die cut and emboss the sentiment with the Spellbinders Elegant Ovals Dies.

Distress a piece of the Tell the Bees Special Edition 6x6 Paper (Craft Consortium) with a distressing tool (or the edge of your scissor blade).  Lightly adhere to a piece of black cardstock and sew a zigzag stitch along the edge.

Wrap a piece of gold seam binding over the seam of the designer papers, wrap the ends of the ribbon behind the panel.

Add a piece of Valentina lace over the edge of the ribbon.

Mount the entire panel onto a white card base.

Adhere the die cut sentiment with dimensional foam.

Add the seam binding bow and pearls to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: Words of Encouragement (Stamp Simply)

Ink/Mediums: Versafine Onyx Black

Cardstock/Paper: Ivory, Black, Craft Consortium Tell the Bees (Special Edition) 6x6 Paper Pad

Accessories/Tools: Gemini, Jr., Spellbinders Elegant Ovals Dies, Embossing Powder Tool, Clear Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Distressing Tool, Sewing Machine, White Thread, 1.75” Valentina Lace- Ivory, Kaisercraft Self-Adhesive Pearls-Pearl
