ODBD June New Release Blog Hop

Good morning!
New June Release is here!
Today my first card features the new Armor of God stamp set



I decided to make an easel card to be able to show the armor plus a wonderful scripture of strength and hope.
I made my frame using the bolt die in the Workshop Tools, cut from chipboard and then glued to my chipboard frame. I then covered it with aluminum tape and tooled around the bolts to get a good edge on each. Then I rubbed the frame with black acrylic paint and wiped off the excess, added bits of teal paint and copper Inka Gold for more color and dimension.  My background is teal stock with a teal die cut of the Majestic Medallion glued on to it and then rubbed with silver Inka Gold.  I stamped the Armor of God, the top title and inside scripture all separately, die cut the words and fussy cut the armor then colored and popped up.
The Ornamental crosses were die cut with silver and copper shimmer paper and glued together.  My inside metal panel was cover with aluminum and run through with an embossing folder.  I colored both word die cuts with some grays to help them match the armor.  
The inside metal panel and the frame on the outside were both cut with the Pierced Rectangles and the sentiments were cut with the Pierced Ovals.


I used the Majestic Medallion die to emboss my white panel and I also cut an oval out of the center. I made an oval frame to sit inside my cut out and popped up my sentiment to sit inside of that. 
I die cut my flowers from yellow card stock and sponged pink on the outside edges of all the petals, formed them and added Prills (US Artquest).
My butterflies have pearl bodies and I put heart shaped rhinestones on the outside corners of the card.
To get a nice bow I curl it round a paint brush first before putting it together so that it stays rounded at the puffy bow parts.

Ephesians 6:10-17New King James Version (NKJV)

The Whole Armor of God

10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age,[a] against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;

Robin,

Tip of the day: FOIL. Hello? As in food wrapping? If it is, why didn't I think of that?
All the details of the armor of God easel card is just awesome. I just wish you had made a video. I'd like to see how you made the easel card.

Both cards were great. TFS!!!
