Never Give Up!
Hello everyone! I hope you are having a great week! Today I have a sample I made with Our Daily Bread designs Jan. release, Never Give Up, Grunge Cross, matching die, and Grunge Cross Background. I stamped the background with VersaMark and then lightly chalked it, then I stamped the Grunge Cross image with Archival Sepia over the bg. I stamped another cross and cut it out with the custom die, sponged the edges and popped up, just offset. The sentiment is a wonderful quote from W. Churchill. My daughter has this quote on her "wall of encouragement" over her treadmill, and she used it and several Scriptures on running the race, never giving up, etc. to train for her first half marathon. I love this set and think it would have so many good uses! The card stock is SU! and the Designer paper is SEI Moravian. The sentiment is mounted on a Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Accent, and the ribbon and bling is from my stash. I sewed and sponged the edges. The entire card took less than an hour, which for me is a record! LOL! Love sets that make up this quickly! Hope you do too!
