Perfect Peace

I don't know about you, but sometimes the layout and content of a card is a complete mystery to me when first starting out. Today's card is an example of that. It started with a completely different look at first and kind of morphed into the creative expression that is posted below because nothing looked right. There was a lot of playing around with colors, dies and layout before the finished project happened. Below is the final process that happened after other stuff just didn't work (LOL)

I used some pink scraps of patterned paper that had been lying around for awhile. This was the first layer on the white cardstock base. Then a white piece was run through an EF, then inked with a brayer and glittered up. This was the second layer. The same pink paper was bordered with a Spellbinders curved border die. The sentiment is from a digi I found at Word Art Wednesday some time ago. I love the font, and of course, the Scripture is so good! A white butterfly was glittered and pearled; the upper left corner was pearled and a white and silver bow was run along the right hand side of the card. 

These were used in making the card:
  • Spellbinders: Labels 23; Curved Borders Two; Wonderful Wings
  • Floral EF
  • Viva Ice White Liquid Pearls
  • Silver and white ribbon
  • Pop Dots
Here is the card:

Romans 10:9-11
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. NLT
