SB Not All Who Wander

Hello friends, thanks so much for stopping by.  I am sharing a masculine card with you today - well, it doesn't need to be masculine but the colours probably make me think it will be.  The sentiment is a favourite of mine and holds special meaning to me - as most of us know life does not always go as planned and I had cause to hold this close to my heart for someone very close to me and thank God for answered prayer!!  

Apply Imagine Memento Ink in Bamboo Leaves to the trees using a sponge dauber, apply Memento Espresso Truffle to the Reindeer with a touch of  VersaFine Vintage Sepia.  Stamp onto the cream card stock, allow to dry – touch up any areas that may have missed ink using the ink pad and a sponge dauber.

Lightly sponge the lower portion of the image using sponge daubers without re-inking – both Bamboo Leaves and Vintage Sepia to create the appearance of ground.  Sponge the top right corner using Imagine Memento Ink in Dandelion and a sponge dauber to create a sun, lightly adding beams onto the trees.  Cut/emboss the image using the Nestabilities Hemstitch Rectangles Etched Dies Venise Lace by Becca Feeken #5 #6 to create the card front.

Stamp the sentiment using Imagine VersaFine ink in Vintage Sepia Ink, trim and adhere to the card front using double sided tape.  Pop the card front onto the slightly larger pre-cut card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.

  8. Very nice card. So glad you participated in our Challenge and we hope you'll join us again. Want to leave your with an inspiration from the Bible in Isaiah 55:6-7 which says, "Seek the Lord while he may be found; call on him while he is near. Let the wicked forsake their ways and the unrighteous their thoughts. Let them turn to the Lord, and he will have mercy on them, and to our God, for he will freely pardon." Have a wonderful week.
