Today I'm back with the Word Art Wednesday Challenge, again as their May Guest Designer.
The sponsor for this challenge is Stamp Simply and I have selected their set Flourishes #33 for my card today.
For this card, I stamped the single flower three times, spaced apart, and used my Copic markers for coloring. I carefully hand cut each one out and laid them to the side.
After printing the scripture for this week from 2 Timothy 2:4, I used the Gina Marie Designs Label 3 die to cut the decorative edge and also cut the solid purple matting. I secured those together.
I trimmed the vertical patterned paper to 5 1/2" square and added the sentiment in the center vertically and just to the right of center horizontally.
On the back of each of the cut out flowers, I added a small foam square to the center. Then starting at the top, I glued the stem and leaf down but allowed the foam dot to adhere the flower itself. This continued for the second and third flowers, ensuring the third curved slightly so the stem flowed under the scripture.
The black card base is 6" square, covered with the same solid as the matting behind the scripture. To complete the card, I secured the decorated card front to the base ensuring everything was secure.
I again would like to thank Karen at Word Art Wednesday and her wonderful Design Team ladies - they do an amazing job with their mission. Thank you for allowing me to design with you this month.
