Bible Verse Swap at the Stamp Shack

I made this 4x6 card panel for a swap that I participated in at the Stamp Shack, hosted by Awna. We made and swapped 10 panels, and when I get them all back, I'll put them in an Inspirational Album that I can read whenever I need a little "pick me up". I used my cuttlebug embossing folders for this project. I inked up the debossing side of my folder (background, not image) with Pretty Petunia VersaMagic Chalk Ink and put a 3x5 piece of cream cardstock in the inked folder and ran it through the machine. Once it was dry, I attached a Martha Stewart pearl stick-on to the center of one of the embossed flowers. I attached a sheer lavendar ribbon around the bottom 1/3 of the panel. Next, I stamped the verse (Stampedous) onto lavendar Bazzill paper with Jumbo Java VersaMagic Chalk Ink and attached that to the embossed cream panel. Lastly, I attached the cream panel to a 4x6 purple Bazzill paper panel and that's it. Done. Easy and elegant. My kind of project! I just signed up for Awna's next swap, for 10 more Bible Verse panels! I think they will all make a lovely book, which I will post as soon as I have received them! Have a happy day everyone!

So elegant! The first thing that caught my eye was the sweeping lines of the embossed stems in the background and the sweeping lines of the font from the sentiment...they go together beautifully! Love the pearl and sheer ribbon ebellishments! :>
