Crafters Of Faith: It’s In The Mail

apoh-DSC03082Today's card is one I made for the Crafters of Faith blogging group ~ a group of Christian bloggers that met and bonded on Split Coast Stampers to craft, fellowship, make friendships and more!  This month, our hostess was Kelly! She made this challenge fun by mailing each of us packets that included some designer papers, embellishments, a stamped image and some ribbon. 

She asked use at least 2 sheets of DSP and 3 of the embellishments on our card/project and, most importantly, to have fun!

My project includes the following ingredients:
  • 3 DSP by Colorbok
  • 1 Really Reasonable Ribbon
  • 1 Prima flower
  • 1 button by Bag 'o' Buttons
  • 1 image by CC Designs (Butterfly Nora)

I started with Recollections brown cardstock as my base layer (cut to A2 size).  I cut and layered 2 of the DSPs and adhered those to the front of my card.  I cut a rectangle and de-embossed it with my cuddlebug polka dot folder and then I added a piece of ribbon.  I coloured my stamped image with copics, added some glitter to her wings, and popped her up on the de-embossed rectangular piece and glued that to the front of my card.  I tied my ribbon using the bow easy and secured a flower to it with a big white brad then glued that to the bottom corner of my card.  I added a button to the center of the brad.  I finished off the front of my card by stamping my sentiment on a piece of white cardstock and layering it on top of a leftover piece of the plain blue paper which I adhered to the top of my card.

For the inside of the card, I cut a piece of green cardstock and glued that down.  I cut a piece of white cardstock and used my Tim Holtz sponge applicator to color the edges with blue colorbox chalk ink. I secured that to the green cardstock, added my stamped logo to the back of the card and I was done!

This makes card #27 out of 100 in my card challenge.
