I Am The Resurrection

Another card for Pastor Dan and his wife Connie.
The scripture is John 11:25 and has been created
in PSP X. It was cut out with a Spellbinder's Label die
and layered over black card stock. I used
the Perfect Layers ruler to get the border even
all the way around, then rounded the corners
with a corner punch. The rounded corner fits
nicely withe the round corner on the label,
pulling the whole together.

The base of the card was craft color card stock.
The top third was stamped with VersaMark ink using B-Lines net
background stamp. It was embossed with clear embossing powder.

The bottom two thirds is black card stock that has been
embossed using an argyle embossing folder.
In the center, dividing the two patterns is a
"ribbon" of scrapbook paper layered over black
card stock. This paper came from the
Everyday Kraft stack by Paper Studio.

This basic design is called "Thirds Cards"
by our Wild Women of the West Stampers group.
The principle behind it is the "odd" number rule.
Placement of objects in any layout, be it
paper, flower arrangements, store displays,
or hanging pictures is usually more pleasing
to the eye if they are in odd number.
1, 3, 5, 7 etc. Try it and see.
