This is a little easter card I made using a vintage image from Twisted papers. (They have the best images I've seen!) Also, I used a stamp from OTC for the "lace". After cutting out all of the unwanted areas, it really looks like lace, I love being able to make this out of paper, because with a little inking, you can customize the "lace" to your project. The little flowers are a paper punch, embellished by my favorite little pearls. The left side of the image also got a small frame of cream colored thin ribbon.
I would show the inside, but I've already written in it, and decided against it.
I was inspired to write this Bible verse to go along with this picture frame and Hope banner. It can be found in Psalm 31: 24, and it reads: "Be strong and take heart all you who hope in the Lord." Suffering from any type of cancer is devastating, and the words of David in what is one of the most beautiful books of the Old Testament can really shed some light into a relationship in which the only comfort that really made a difference was the one promised by our very maker. If you, or someone you know is suffering from this horrible disease, my hope is that you find comfort not only in your surroundings and those you know, but also in the love of our God, just as David did in the darkest moments of his life. For this project I used the Cricut to make the banner and flowers. I hand-painted the Bible verse and background with watercolors, color pencils, and ink. TFL!
I'll also be sharing this over at Link up for Pink.

Today I am posting a short tutorial that comes in handy. I cover how to GROUP, ATTACH, ARRANGE and HIDE layers and shapes to maximize the use of your paper!. Using my Cricut Explore Air 2, Design Space and a FREE File: Creative Bug Flowers, I made custom flowers that coordinate perfectly with the papers in my cards.
Cricut Explore Air 2, Creative Bug Flowers in several sizes, Flourish Card,Creative Cards, and Design Space Font: Sunday Swirls Bold, Spellbinders Dies: S4-295, and S2-077, Cardstock: Momenta. Other materials from my stash.
I hope this is useful to you, and that it answers some questions you may have! Please let me know what other types of tutorials may be helpful to you. I am happy to oblige!
