For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord.

Card size:  4 X 9”

Fold 8 X 9 1/4” white cardstock to measure 4 X 9” then place the Slim Elegant Rectangle outer die over edge of fold by about 3/8” so that fold does not cut through completely. Cut another card front from Fuchsia decorative paper then glue it to base matching sides and bottom edges.

Cut Decorative outer part of die from white and from gold, glue together slightly off-set then glue to card front, centering.  Use this die again to cut a lighter pink decorative paper for the inside of gold and white decorative frame. Glue to card.

Cut 2 layers of the slim Elegant Rectangle inner parts, 1 from gold and a slightly smaller one from white then glue together and pop up to center of card.

Stamp Have An Amazing Day on white using Vibrant Fuchsia, die cut then die cut a gold layer, glue together slightly off-set then glue to the center of the card front.

Stamp lilies using Sunflower ink on Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper, die cut, sponge edges then use a yellow chalk pencil (or other pencil) to fill in lily center and stripe on petals, rub out slightly (if using chalk).  Form in the mold, glue 2 blossoms together for each flower, use 1 for the bud, stamping side out). Punch a small pointy flower to use as sepal for the bud, Use Golf Groove Tool to pierce centers and to further form lilies.  Insert stamen, 3 for each flower (yellow used for this sample).  Glitter petals.

Stamp leaves using Fern Green, sponge with Leaf Green, die cut then form in the mold, Lacquer leaves using 3D Lacquer and shimmer additive (optional).  Arrange leaves and flowers on the left side of sentiment.

Stamp small butterfly using embossing ink on vellum then heat emboss with gold powder, die cut then add a thin layer of Diamond Stickles to the wings.  Put pop up under body only and adhere to card on the right side.

Glitter card as desired, add white pearls to decorate decorative gold and white Slim Elegant Rectangle frame.

One of my favorite verses
For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.

 I've been noticing over the years how TV programing has become more and more anti-God, anti-Biblical principles, haven't you?  Those people want everyone to be as hopeless as they are...why they really care what I believe, I haven't figured that out yet.  So that, with the bombardment of news, it has become easier for people to lose hope in their life. 

I have hope in my life because my hope is based entirely on Jesus.  He is my solid ground, my compass. How can I not have hope when He says that He has redeemed us.  I have seen the miracle in my life of new life and many times He has come to my rescue in circumstances or when I'm afraid or in pain. I know He is who He says He is and that He really did die for me and rose from the grave with can I not have hope.   
Hebrews11:1 Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. For by it the people of old received their commendation. By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible.

He says He has a place for me so when this short physical life is over I know where I'll spend eternity. John 14:1-3.

For peace and for hope, turn off the TV for a while and read God's word, the Bible.

Happy Birthday!

 Hello Heartfelt friends!

I just love these vellum cards!  They look so lacey and pretty.

It seems perfect to me to put beautiful Irises on this lacey looking card.
I think a lot of very small flowers would work really well too!

Card size:  4 3/4" X 6 3/4"

Using Heavy weight Vellum, make a shaped card with the outer die of the Elaborate Oval Frames.  Start by folding a piece of vellum to be at least 5 X 7” then place the die over-lapping the fold by about 1/4". Cut another front from vellum using the same die and set aside.

Cut the decorative die of the Elaborate Oval from white, glue it to the vellum front.  Put glue on the front piece only where you see the white decorative die so that it does not show when glued to the card base.

Die cut the smaller decorative die from white, glue to the card front.  Stamp the sentiment using Deep Purple on vellum then cut with the smallest oval, glue it inside the smaller decorative white die cut.

Glitter the card front.

Stamp Iris flower on Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper 3 times per color (Cactus Flower and Deep Purple) for each flower. Sponge stamping color along with yellow on each petal.  Cut 1 double petal in half so that top has 3 petals and bottom has 3 petals, (3 petals makes it easier to glue flat to the card vs 4 petals top and bottom). Use hot glue to adhere top to bottom of each Iris.  Glue stems to flowers in back.  Fill flower beards with Flower Soft.

Stamp leaves on Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper using Fern Green, sponge with Leaf Green, die cut then shape. Glue 2 leaves to the stems then glue flowers and stems to card on left side around sentiment. Glitter edges of petals only.

My next card uses the cute little birds and iris garden images 
to create a little (A2 size) Z-Fold card.

Card size:  4 1/4" X 5 1/2"

Score white cardstock at 2 1/8” and 4 1/4" then fold into a Z-Fold card.  Cut 3 pieces of light blue decorative paper to fit, 1 for each panel, leaving a slight white border.

Cut several layers of grass border from green decorative paper, set aside.

Stamp all images using London Fog Memento, die cut each then color with alcohol inks.  Stamp sentiment using Cactus Flower Ink, die cut with circle, die cut frame with slightly larger circle from Raspberry color cardstock.  Cut Delicate Daisy corner from white.

Open card flat then glue Daisy Corner to right top corner of card.  Glue sentiment to center panel top. Glue bird house and fence to left panel.  Glue 1 bird to birdhouse, glue other bird to fence top.  Glue grass borders in layers leaving all grass tops open (so that you can stick flower stems into grass layers).

Arrange how you want flowers then glue to card.  Glitter card.
