Yes, I got some good news to share with you today: His mercies are NEW every morning! And there is no way I could be here speaking to you through this post without God’s mercy. As his mercies renew we too strenghten and find a way to wake up, get out of our beds and keep going.
This week at Classy Cards ‘n Such we have a challenge that we’d love you to join: Time For A “New Year” – Use something new you just received and add some glitter and/or bling. I have been blessed recently with many new goodies, so I used some of them to make my card for today, and I also added some sparkle for the challenge!
I started out by die cutting my card base with Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics. Then I added a patterned paper layer die cut with Our Daily Bread Designs’ Flourished Star Pattern set, that I adhered with 1/2″ Scor-Tape.
I created a central border with two individual borders die cut with Our Daily Bread Designs’ Beautiful Borders. Next I added a flourish oval cut from Echo – Bronze Stardream Metallic using Spellbinders Elegant Ovals. I also used the same set to die cut a smaller oval on which I stamped a sentiment from Our Daily Bread Designs’ stamp set Glory.
I thought I’d add a nice metallic detail to the card with this Village Lamp Post from PoppyStamps die cut from Precious Metals Craft Foil by Spellbinders (using the silver back of the foil). I used a piece of 8 1/2″ x 11″ Double sided adhesive sheet to stick some Sparkle ‘n Sprinkle Crystal Ice glitter for the lampost’s lights. I added the lampost to the side of the ovals and finished my design with a few Baby Rhinestones – Silver.
I hope you enjoyed today’s post and of course I can’t sign off without wishing you all a great 2015! May this new year bring many blessings to you and yours!
Thank you for stopping by!
