The Lord Will Indeed Give What Is Good


This card was made using the colors of black, kraft, and red.  The base card is craft with a layer of red and then a layer of black.  The top layer is kraft cardstock that I ran through a Cuddlebug cut and emboss folder.  Then I ran Versamark over the top to bring out the design.  It actually looks a bit like leather, though my pictures never do the cards justice.  I also cut out the middle part of the same die in red, cut it in half, and layered it behind the craft layer, letting the edges just peek out (did that make any sense?).  I used a saying from Our Daily Bread Designs and cut it out with a Spellbinder label die and used pop dots to attach it in the middle of the card.  I also rubbed a little Versamark around the edges and then edged it with red Tombow marker.  Then I used a die from Heartfelt Creations to cut out the red decorative designs on each side.

The flower was made from red tissue paper using a Tim Holtz Sizzix die.  The black center is also from that same die, and I had to add a little bling to the middle, of course.  The butterfly is also a diecut from  Heartfelt Creations.  It needed something extra so I added some bling to the wings!!

In case you can't tell, I love flowers and butterflies on my cards, and of course always need some type of bling!!
