Here is my project for this themed hop. I used images and sentiments from Our Daily Bread designs “Friendship” set and made a double pocket card. I used retired SU! Certainly Celery designer paper for the pocket base. I used glossy card stock for my white and Martha Stewart designer paper for the backgrounds of my bookmark pullouts and the belly band. I used Stazon Olive Ink, a Martha Stewart edge punch for my belly band, an EK Success flourish punch for the flourishes, a Spellbinders Label #6 for my dragonfly image panel and mat, a Cuttlebug Swiss Dot folder, Cuttlebug Butterfly Die cut/embossing combo, a CB edge and some green vellum for the butterflies and leaves. I rubbed my Olive Ink on the CB folder to add definition before embossing. I finished with some pearls and Prima Hydrangeas, and topped the bookmarks with SU! ribbons.
I love how all the Our Daily Bread designs sets are God honoring sentiments and Scriptures. They have opened a door for those of us who want to share God's Word through our cards.
Women to Women, along with a few thoughts on today’s Scripture. All of the regular writing contributors to Women to Women will have a project to share with you. I hope you’ll continue on the hop and take the time to read the posts. I titled this card “A Chord of Three” based on the 12th verse of Ecc. 4. “A chord of three strands is not quickly torn apart”. That verse made me think of these three little friends linked arm in arm. While all the details are listed on WTW… this image is Penny Black and the sentiment is Our Daily Bread Designs Friendship. DP is Daisy d. The ribbon was in the blog candy I won from Crystal (Sugar Crystals). Thanks so much Crystal!
I hope you have enjoyed my projects for this blog hop! Thanks for stopping and now….
The next stop on this blog hop is:
Have fun on the hop! God bless!
