My first card today is a Book Fold card from the Fancy Folds Card Kits at ODBD. I used the following products on my "Praying" card :
Handle with Prayer stamp set, Praying Border Die, Praying Hands Die, Deco Border Die, and past releases: Bitty Borders, Pierced Squares and Squares, Christian Faith Paper Pad.
I stamped the sentiment with blue ink on white card stock. I cut the sentiment panel with a Pierced Squares die, and added a Deco Border die to the top and bottom. After adhering my design paper to the inside of the card, I adhered the sentiment panel to the left side of the book fold. I stamped the praying hands with the same ink and die cut with the matching Praying Hands Die, and adhered that to the right side. I used Bitty Borders to trim the book fold. Below is the front of the card. I used the same paper pack to die cut the new Praying Border die, which I love! I made a white frame by cutting a Pierced Square and inside of that a Square die, then I adhered a Deco Border die to the top and bottom of the frame on the inside. I adhered the Praying die to the outside. To give the word die some strength, I die cut it from white card stock and adhered the design paper cut to that. I popped up the frame onto a square of white card stock that I had embossed with a Sizzix folder. I added Bitty borders to the top and bottom of the card and tiny blue half pearls.
For the card below, I had some fun with the bright bold papers in the Birthday Brights Paper Pad. I die cut numerous banners from this paper using the new Pennant Flags Die set and the Double Stitched Pennant Flags set. I stamped the sentiment from the new Pennant Flag Verses set with Baja Blue ink and adhered all of the flags with dimensional foam tape. I used Bakers twine and tiny buttons and a Cuttlebug embossing folder and a Double Stitched Rectangle die to cut the embossed panel.
To recap, here are the new products I used today:
