Paper Playtime Challenge #55 / A Child's Year

Hi There, I made this card for the Paper Playtime Challenge #55. Here's the recipe:
Card base: 4 1/4 " by 5 1/2".
Yellow polka dot mat: 4 2/16" by 5 5/16"
Coffee pot and cup with saucer: A Child's Year cartridge at : 2 1/2" and 1 1/2 " respectively, the same size was cut in white and I staggered them to create the shadow. I also used the Swiss Dot folder to dry emboss the orange layers.
"Enjoy" sentiment from Cosmo Cricket is double matted in orange and white cardstock in 1/16th increments.
Flowers are from My Minds eye, brad is from my stash.
For inside of card:
I used same polka dot paper to mat the inside, and added a double mat of black and white paper for sentiment cut at : 4 2/16" for the black, and 3 15/16" for the white. Alphabet stamps for sentiment are from Studio G. Felt flower is from my stash. Enjoy!
The challenge is to make an Easel/ Pedestal card.

Both pictures are of the card when opened. The little red felt flower will keep it standing.

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 Floral Thank You Card

Please enjoy this video, I apologize in advance for the abrupt editing, and I appreciate your feedback. I also should have mentioned that I used the fast-cut feature for some of the die cutting, and made this card very quickly. Overall, I am very pleased! Be blessed!

Hope Frame with Bible Verse

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.
