For My Friend

Good morning my friends!

Ok, you've guessed it, this is one of my very favorite diecut shapes and I use it a lot
It works so well with those new floral frames too, I just can't resist!
Material list HERE

Card size:  6 X 6”

Make a card base using ivory cardstock folded size 6 X 6.  Place the die at the top barely over the fold so that it will not cut the fold (see video).  Cut the Elegant Hearts Centerpiece from light gold cardstock then glue it to the ivory card base.

Stamp Oval Floral Frame using black ink then die cut and color.  Cut the cottage scene from decorative paper with the Oval Floral Frame to fit inside of frame.  Cut an oval piece of foam sheet or use pop ups to pop up the cottage and frame then attach to the center of the card.

Stamp Magnolia flowers using Magenta Hue (at least 8 of the same size), to make 3 flowers and 2 buds. Stamp leaves using Fern Green, sponge with Leaf Green, die cut then shape in the mold.  Shape flowers in the Magnolia mold.

Glue 2 blossoms together for each flower and use 1 blossom each to make buds.  Glue the flowers and leaves to the oval frame.  Paint the leaves with a mixture of 3D Lacquer and shimmer additive.  Glitter the flowers then add gold Prills to the centers.

Stamp For My Friend using Magenta Hue, die cut the stamped sentiment and also die cut from foam to pop up the sentiment.  Glue the 2 layers together then glue it to the card.

Glitter the card randomly then add some pink Prills to the tree and grass/flower area of cottage image.

Thanks for visiting today!

Jesus always spent time in prayer seeking to do the will of His Father, how much time do we spend with our heavenly Father to discover His will for us.
He is the vine we are the branches, we get our strength and nourishment from our time with Him.
One thing we have is the written Word of God to know His will especially when you feel like you just don't "hear" God's voice.  Look to Jesus, what He did on this earth, what He said, and ask yourself "what would Jesus do?".  You know He went about doing good to all those who sought Him or even those He just happened to come in contact with.  Let's do the same.
We don't have to agree with someone to love them, do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
That is called the golden rule for a very good reason, Jesus said the first commandment is to love God with everything that is in you and the rest of the commandments are summed up in the next, love your neighbor as yourself.  (your neighbor is ANYONE you come in contact with or know).
Start today, follow Jesus.

Such a gorgeous card. I love the scene in the middle of the frame and the flowers finish it so well.
