One of my friends issued a challenge this week from the Stamping Sisters in Christ blog to craft a card using the shadow box tutorial. The devotional this week can be found at the SSIC blog. The verse was 1 Corinthians 13:12 "For now we see through a glass, darkly: but then face to face: now I know in part, but then I shall even as I am known. "
I was intrigued by this design, and have been hoping to use this stamp set from Our Daily Bread Designs called "Peace on Earth" since receiving it. This rich regal gold embossed paper was just right for this image, too, don't you think?? I mounted the paper first on another piece of cardstock before cutting out a center window with the Labels Four nestability die. The image was embossed with gold detail powder, then highlighted with Antique Linen ink. Gold dome accents were added. The sentiment was done the same way, then the corners highlighted with gold ink. The ribbon is from Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply store, it drapes beautifully and is great for framing images.
I loved making this card, it reminded me of gazing into a window scene and gave the image such depth. This is a 5 1/2 inch square. card. Thanks Peggysue for the challenge and the wonderful devotional.
I am so happy you stopped by today!!
