God's mercies are...

Good Morning!

I love making circle cards. The shape just adds something special to the card... don't you think? I decided to use one of the new clear stamp sets, New Creature. Lovely scriptures and butterfly images.

When I started stamping 10+ years ago, heat embossing was very popular... then it kind of got boring... couple of months ago, I picked up my embossing tools again, and ever since I really enjoy using that technique. For my card, I embossed the butterfly image on vellum with white embossing powder and carefully cut it out...

Behind the scripture, I stamped the flower image from Serene Silhouettes clear stamp set. The sketch came from The Sweet Stop, SSS96.

Thanks for visiting!
