Your Word Card



The finished size of this card is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". All the coloring on this card was done with alcohol inks. I used stream, sailboat blue, pearl mixative, and blending solution for the background. Then using the same piece of felt which had just a little color left on it, I added sandal to the felt and did another piece of cardstock for the lighthouse image. Both the lighthouse image and scripture (Our Daily Bread Designs) were stamped with Archival Ink jet black. I cut out the lighthouse with a Spellbinders oval die and embossed the edge. Also cut the scalloped oval (glossy white cardstock) with a Spellbinders die and then used pearl mixative and blending solution on it which worked great to give it a pearly look. After stamping the scripture on the background I used a Cuttlebug folder to emboss the folders by just putting the paper part-way in the folder. Also edged the background with a Silver Krylon pen.

Wanda...this card is so pretty. Love the scalloped edge. I have that swirly embossing folder too and never thought to use it as 'waves'. You are so clever and it looks great behind the lighthouse.
