Psalm 107:1 WORDart

I’m finally back with a card and some new WORDart.  The last few weeks have been crazy with us finishing up with the school year and everything that goes along with that.  My parents came and spent a week with us on their vacation, so we decided to take a staycation.  We filled our days visiting a lot of the local tourist attractions we have been wanting to visit, picking strawberries, making homemade ice cream and a few day trips.  We had such a wonderful time!

It felt so great to finally make a card.  I haven’t made anything in over two weeks.  I was beginning to have withdrawal symptoms.  I received my Papertrey order and it sat in the box for a week and a half, that is definitely a first! I usually rip that thing open the minute it comes through the door.

Psalm 107_1 card

I started with a card base of Simply Chartreuse that I ran through my Cuttlebug with the Woodgrain impression plate.  I used the Life and Beautiful Blooms II sets to create the little scene on Stamper’s Select White cardstock.  The images were stamped in True Black, Lemon Tart and Simply Chartreuse and Simply Chartreuse satin ribbon tied around it.  I layered that onto true black cardstock then onto lemon tart cardstock with a border punched on the right side with the Fiskars apron lace border punch.  The WORDart was printed and cut with the Fillable Frames #4 die.  I went around the edges with some Metallic Rub-on and adhered it to the layers.  I stamped an image from Beautiful Blooms II onto Lemon Tart cardstock using Simply Chartreuse ink, then used a butterfly punch to make the butterfly.  The gems were clear until I colored them with a black Copic marker.  Love doing that!!!!

The WORDart is available for download HERE.

I want to say thank you to all of those who have taken the time to let me know you are enjoying my WORDart.  It means so much to hear from you.  I would love to see what you have created with it!

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!
