 Good morning!!

Today I've used some peachy colors for this fun frame!

The gold trim vellum sentiment really sets this card off.

Find the material list HERE

Card size:  5 X 6 7/8”

Because this is a tall tent fold use 2 pieces of white cardstock, cut 1 7 3/8” then score 1/2” at the top to create a tab then fold down, use the outer die of the Flourish Companion Die, make sure to let die hang over fold by about 1/4" so that fold stays intact.  Cut the other piece of cardstock to 5 1/4"X 7” then use the outer die again making a full die cut of the shape.   Glue the front onto your tab matching edges of front with the back of card.  Cut peach color cardstock using the same die then glue the die cut to the front.

Out of Luxe Gold use the large decorative die in the Flourish Companion set to cut, cut out decorative paper to coordinate with peach as well.  Glue the decorative gold die to front as well as the inside of the die cut, cut out of decorative peachy paper.

Stamp the Curvy Floral Frame using black ink, color with Copic Markers or your favorite coloring method.  Stamp the flowers and leaves from Curvy Floral Frame and from Rectangular Floral Frame using black, color, then die cut all.  Die cut a gold Curvy Floral Frame as well.  Glue the gold Floral Frame under the colored frame off set.  Use thin foam pop ups to pop up frame onto cut out Cottage paper, trim paper where needed so that it is all inside frame (you could use the die but since it is popped up the edge can be seen).  Glue this stack onto the card front.

Shape the flowers with a pad and Gold Groove Tools, add Prills to the centers then glitter them and attach to the flower images on the card.  Glitter parts of the card base (avoiding the gold) using a sponge with glue and Crystal Clear.

On Vellum, Use Embossing ink (VersaMark use here) to stamp sentiment then cover with gold embossing powder, remove excess powder and use the heat tool to emboss until shiny.  Cut 2 strips of gold about 1/8” wide, glue them to each side of the sentiment then fishtail the ends with scissors.  Because vellum shows adhesive, put glue under gold trim only, put some thin foam strips under the gold in the center part of the card to make it even with the frame.

(Optional) Die cut decorative paper for the inside of card then glue in place, trim the top so that it does not interfere with score line.

Thanks for visiting!

Today's thought...
“Judge[a] not, that you be not judged. For with what [b]judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove the speck from your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye?

Jesus taught us not to judge another, we are only to love others, it is God who will judge.  Everyone will stand before the judgement seat of God someday, don't worry about what other people (in the world) are doing.  Every person needs grace!
