My Help Comes From the Lord

Hi Sweet Friends!

Julie, here sharing a masculine card designed with several stamp sets- Scene Silhouettes: WoodlandScene Silhouettes: Trees  and Be Encouraged.

To create this card, I stamped the tree image from Scene Silhouettes:Trees with archival black ink onto a piece of designer paper, applied clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.  I used a distressing tool to lightly distress the edges before mounting onto a piece of black cardstock and adding to the white card base.
I also stamped the bear image from Scene Silhouettes: Woodland   and the sentiment from Be Encouraged with archival black ink onto a piece of white cardstock, applied clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.  Once the embossing had cooled, I die cut the bear image with a square stitched die and mounted onto a piece of black cardstock.  I decided to hand trim the sentiment, mounted it also onto black cardstock and used a stencil brush to apply antique linen distress ink over both images to “antique” the paper a bit.

I looped a bit of polished hemp twine onto the card front (I used hot glue to adhere behind where the focal image would be located) and finished off the card by mounting the bear focal image along with the sentiment using dimensional foam.

This card was my Valentine for my hubby :-)  We love to drive along Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park and are constantly looking for bears. On one particular day trip, we saw ten bears (the highest number for one day for us)!  We also love the majestic vistas and they remind us of God's Creative Handiwork- Our Help Comes From the Lord, we are so thankful to Him!!
