The LORD is my LIGHT

Hello Sweet Friends!  Julie here to share a fairly quick floral card using Mini Flower Blocks 3, Shining Light and Typewriter Text Background from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. 

As I designed this card, I reflected on Psalm 27:1 and am so thankful that “The Lord is my LIGHT and my Salvation, whom shall I fear?”  It is such a comfort to know that I am a child of God and He will be with me always :-)

I heat embossed the rose image from Mini Flower Blocks 3 using black embossing powder and water-colored the image with markers before adding Clear Wink of Stella® over the petals.

Using a light pink ink, I stamped the Typewriter Text Background   onto a piece of yellow and light pink designer paper before stamping the sentiment from Shining Light with an archival black ink ( I love the subtle background that the Typewriter Text Background creates :-)).

I mounted the panels onto black cardstock, added pieces of a white paper doily to the corners of the yellow layer before mounting the panels to the white card base. 

The finishing touches are a bit of gold cord before adding the rose image with dimensional foam :-)

I had a great time creating this quick card and I think that the verses in Shining Light are perfect for an encouragement card as well as Father's Day!  

Add the Shining Light verses with the gorgeous floral images in Mini Flower Blocks 3 and not only are you able to create a multitude of cards but they are also fabulous for Creative Worship (Bible Art Journaling)!

Also, please don’t forget- we are offering free shipping on all Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps through June 12!  Now is the time to order and save :-)

I hope I have inspired you to break out your stamps and get “inky”- have a blessed week, sweet friends!
