Thinking of You (3)

Today I used a technique that I have seen on the internet before but have never tried myself. It is using two embossing folders and scoring in between the two designs. I also used a border punch that I probably have not used in years; likewise, the Cricut cartridge and patterned papers that were used have been sitting all lonely for years, as well. It was time to pull them out and create something.

Here are the tools used:

Cricut Sophie Cartridge
Darice Flourishes 3-Pack EF
Paper Studio A2 Butterflies EF
Spellbinders Jewel Flowers and Flourishes
Martha Stewart Butterfly Border Punch
Viva Liquid Pearls
Green Raffia Ribbon

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 

Acts 13:38-39
"Brothers, listen! We are here to proclaim that through this man Jesus there is forgiveness for your sins. Everyone who believes in him is declared right with God—something the law of Moses could never do." NLT
