Nichole asked us to keep the Everyday Blessings cards simple to reproduce, and that's what I did. My first Everyday Blessings card is a standard A-2 size, stamped on brushed gold cardstock with Versamark and heat embossed with detail gold embossing powder. I accented the cross with iridescent Swarovski crystals after cutting and embossing my image with a Spellbinders Classic rectangle die and matting it with ivory cardstock.
I used my Scor-Pal to emboss a patterned background. (You can find instructions here if you missed them earlier.) I heat-embossed one of the verses in the set with detail gold EP on the front of my brushed gold envelope. (I've had these for quite a while and can't remember where I got them--sorry about that!) That's it--simple and elegant.
My second Everyday Blessings card is 4-1/4" square. I created a patterned background by using the small cross in a repeating pattern with the Aqua Mist ink. I don't have my PTI Aqua Mist cardstock yet, so colors are a bit off--the closest I could come with trying to ink some paper. I used my Spellbinders Petite Oval Nestabilities, both plain and scalloped, to create the medallion that contains the Bible verse. Brad is an SU brad, re-colored with a Copic marker to coordinate. You can't see it well in the photo, but it is a darker aqua color that works well with the Aqua Mist ink. I used a Versamagic Turquoise ink to stamp the verse.
More sets to come later this evening!
