Extreme 16

Happy Creative Friday!

I think you can say I'm tearin' it up! ( Pun intended!)
This card was made as a special request, and I was happy to oblige. As it is titled, it is for an Extreme 16, and I was happy to be able to easily design and make the entire thing with my Cricut Explore Air 2!

I used Ranger Distress ink in Vintage Photo, a WeRMemory Keepers embossing folder from the Geo collection, and metal numbers from my stash. The distressing in white that left "Treads" all over the outside of my card were made using a tread cutout as a stencil and white gesso. I also drew the small details of the tread on the exterior with a black sharpie for contrast.

I was also able to make the inside banner with my Cricut's Write and Cut feature. I love how easy it is to attach words to images and let the machine do the writing! 




The papers made this card very easy to put together they are from the Fancy Free collection by Pink Paiselee, as well as Kraft cardstock and black paper from Recollections.

I hope you enjoy this masculine birthday card. I am thrilled with the results!
Be inspired, Be blessed!-Raquel

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.
