My Song 2 Psalm 118:14

This is the same basic design as yesterday "except"
I used a DP (designer paper) under the lattice.
The lattice is a different color, but the basics are the same.

The flowers are punched and shaped.
It is a busier look and also a little bolder with
the dark burgundy multiple flowers.

My Song - Psalm 118:14

A beautiful and inspiring scripture needs a beautiful setting.

This card begins with a plain white A2 card base.
Attached to that is a background made from 
cream card stock that has been colored with
various Glimmer Mists.
The medium brown lattice has been cut from
card stock using a Cheery Lynn Designs dies.

The scripture was printed on white card stock and
die cut using a Spellbinders Label die.  A slightly larger 
and different die was used for the lower layer.
Each layer had the edges sponged with dark
brown ink.

Now each label has the flat part of paper egg
cartons attached to back to create a 3-D look.
The paper egg carton is much cheaper the pop dots.

The flower is was stamped on black card stock with
pigment ink and embossed with fine line gold embossing powder.
It was then painted with twinkling H2O's.

Double Fold Explosion Card

Here is one of the few cards that will not have an explanation of how it
was made.  I attended the last meeting of an art
group called the Basement Babes in the
home of Jen L. in Lafayette CO this past week.
This was the project.  It is very complicated
and very impressive.
This is the front of the card.
The first unfolding.
The explosion begins with the second unfolding.
Almost full explosion!
Left side of the card.
Right side of the card.
Now you can see why I am not even going to try
to share the instructions.
