Thou shalt call his name Jesus

Today’s card is stamped using Clarity stamp.  The image was stamped and embossed then cut out using a circle die from Spellbinders.  It was matted onto an embossed pale gold sheet and then holly leaves were die-cut from the backing paper and used to make a wreath around the stamped image.

18th Birthday

I have made quite a few cards in his type of style this week.  Most had bows in the centre above the glass charm-ring but Than I decided to used the trimmings and found it makes for a much neater finish.  The embosed background is made with a Tattered Lace folder.

Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the Lord.

Proverbs 18:22

My sister is getting married this year, and as our dear Mummy is no longer with us I am rather taking on her role; of course this has nothing to do with my being bossy and controlling at all!  Over the coming weeks and months I will be sharing some of our plans and preparation.

If you are interested, you might like to look at my Pinterest page, where I have collected ideas.


The card will be entered into these challenges: – Valentines day/hearts/Love – invitations/wedding – use a heart – love is in the air (#199) – red/pink – love – love your love – hearts – anything with a heart – heart of the matter – picture inspiration
