Pure Love

I have the honor of being a guest designer for Our Daily Bread for the next two months, and I couldn't wait to make an all white card with one of their new releases I Corinthians 13: 4-8.

I love the sketch that Rox put up on SCS yesterday, and thought it lent itself really well to a gate-fold card. So, I took an 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of white Prismatic cardstock, scored it 2 1/8" inches in on both of the longest sides, ran it through my cuttlebug with the Birds and Swirls Embossing folder, and added the front panel that I cut with the curvy rectangle Nestabilities (Spellbinders), edged with an 18kt gold leafing pen. The inside corners were punched with a Marvy corner punch.

The butterflies were punched out of a Textile (Cuttlebug) embossed piece of white Prism cs, and the flower was made with punches by Martha Stewart and Carl CarlaCraft.

Stamps - I Corinthians (Our Daily Bread)
Paper - White (Prism)
Ink - Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Accessories - Curvy Rectangle Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Birds and Swirls and Textile (Cuttlebug - embossing folder - Provo Craft), Offray Ribbon, Punches - Marvy, Martha Stewart and Carl CarlaCraft, Scor-Pal, Gold Leafing Pen (Krylon)

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you're having a fantastic week!
Happy Stamping!
Tosh

Gorgeous card! I love this verse and have been looking for a stamp with a version I like and in a font I like. I think my search has ended.
