Hello everyone! This card was made for several challenges! Hope I remembered everything! I used the Midnight Madness Sketch 40 and the recipe from Stampin Sisters in Christ 25, which was based on Mark 10:7-9 " 7. For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife. 8. and the two will become one flesh. So they are no longer two but one. 9. Therefore what God has joined together , let no man separate." NASB
The challenge was that whatever we used, we had to use two of... like if we used designer paper, we were to use two... ribbons? Use two. Not as easy as it sounds!
I used 2 designer papers, 2 ribbons, 2 embossing folders, 2 mats, 2 hearts in my image, 2 kinds of stitches... the only thing I used 1 of is the silver heart brad at the top, and that represents the ONE that the 2 have become. After almost 39 years of marriage I must say you do even start to think as one! Even when we go to a restaurant we usually end up ordering the same thing! :) It is my hope that you can enjoy this kind of union... there's nothing much better!
Anyway... my card is on a base of very vanilla, layered with My Mind's Eye Bella Rose and topped with K&Co Madeline. My image and matting is all VV and I used 2 Sizzix embossing folders. The edges of all layers are sponged with Creamy Caramel, and there is zig zag stitching around 3 sides, and straight stitching across the top. I used a Fiskar punch to create the holes to thread my first ribbon through. I topped it with a sheer satin edged vanilla ribbon bow. My image is from Our Daily Bread designs and is called Love One Another. It is colored with Prisma Pencils and then Shimmerz. I can't get a good photo of the shimmer but it's there!
