ODBD Three for Three Challenge Card


I have become quite a fan of Our Daily Bread Designs stamps, particularly since I have been making cards for the church. ODBD is having a challenge to make a pocket card--you can read all about it HERE. I decided to make a double pocket card. You can find the directions HERE. I used SU Afternoon Tea (ret.) and folded according to directions. I made tags from PTI Vintage Cream CS, rounded the corners and used my SU eyelet border punch across the bottom. I used Sing to the Lord and stamped the scriptures on the tags in Close to Cocoa. I sponged with Groovy Guava (SU ret.) and stamped dogwood blossoms in Soft Sky (SU ret.). I added Groovy Guava double stitched ribbon. The butterfly on the front is die cut using SU Sizzix Butterfly die. I repurposed an old PTI stamp box for the die cut and stamped the Amazing Grace Hymn on it in Staz ON Timber Brown. I added pearls (from Hobby Lobby I think).






Here is a picture showing the tags. I absolutely love the way this turned out and hope you do too. I hope everyone had a good weekend and is looking forward to the week ahead. Thanks for stopping by!
