Hello~ My card is for 2 challenges: SSCC and Stamp Something.
At SSCC we are to make a card which would encourage or inspire our children or a teacher. The scripture chosen for this week is Proverbs 22:6 "Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it." My hubby and I have always asked our kids to always try and do there best and whatever the outcome~ at least they tried!!
For the Stamp Something challenge we are to use our favorite stamp or set and as a bonus to add the use of die cutting tools and punches :D Well, I ended up using 3 different stamps~~ you are right that is a very tough decision to only pick a stamp.
My card is an acetate card which I stamped the diamond background with Cotton White Opaque stazon and then I chose the Bo Bunny Alissa (my youngest daughter's name :)collection as the insert. The stamps I used are the cute little Melinda from Whiff of Joy and Mother Teresa set from ODBD. I cut out Melinda with oval nestie and popped her up, then glued a black scalloped oval under the acetate behind Miss Melinda. Used ribbon to connect insert to acetate and added "SMILE" from Verve Circular Sayings Set along with flowers and butterflies :-)
The finished inside of my card is a stamped verse from Mother Teresa Stamp Set on labels 4 nestie over a curved rectangular layer accented with butterfly.
