Hello friends! I hope you are all doing well! As I post this I am listening to the election results as they come in. Who knew this election would be so close! Well... I'm so thankful to know that no matter who wins this election, God is still on His throne, and Jesus is my King!
I am sharing another card made using the new Jesus Loves You Stamp/Die Duo set. I used last months Holy Night Die to cut my focal image from brushed gold card stock. I cut the word Jesus from the same paper, as well as a mat which I cut with the outer border die from the Snowflake Sky Die set. I used several cuts using the Leafy Edged Border dies to create my "hills". I sponged them lightly with Brilliance Galaxy Gold ink and adhered together. I added the hills to my background which I had sponged with distress ink in stormy sky. I positioned my Holy Night die as well as the Jesus word die cut and adhered. I heat embossed the "Is Born" sentiment in gold and cut with the Log Cabin Quilt Dies. I created a pop up frame for my focal point by cutting and layering three die cuts made using a Pierced Rectangle and Rectangle die and passed through the die cut machine together. I used foam tape to pop up the layers. To make the star pop a little more, I cut another star from the Holy Night die set from silver glitter paper and adhered over the brushed gold one.
This was a simple card and wouldn't be too hard to do in mass, though the added frame layers might be left off if doing a mass production. I hope you enjoyed my sample today, and thanks so much for stopping to look!
Hopefully next week I will have good news to share. I had my first chest CT scan yesterday and should get those results next Monday. I have also finished up my last infusion as of last Tues.!!! I am having some issues with where my lymph nodes were removed but hopefully with time that will improve. I have learned that I can't do as much with that arm as I used to do as it seems to mess up the drainage of lymph or something. It just gets very sore and swells some. But it's ok! I'm just thankful to be getting to the end of a LONG year of treatment, and praying there won't be need for any more .... ever! So... hopefully next week I will have good news to share on the CT Scan!
Praying for so many right now.... and thanking you for all your prayers for me!!!
