In God I Trust!


When I saw this sentiment in Kelley's new set "In God We Trust", from Our Daily Bread Designs, I knew I wanted to make a card that focused strictly on that statement.

I saw a pillow a couple of days ago with this type of color blocking, so I thought I'd make this Clean and Simple. I punched the stars out of each colored panel, embossed them with the Distressed Stripes Embossing Folder (Cuttlebug), and mounted the top panel on top of each of the other colors with dimensional tape. I then added a strip of the sentiment to divide each color and a Multicolored Mini-Rhinestone between the statements. There are Black Candy Dots in the corners also.

It doesn't get much simpler than that. *grin*
Have a Happy Mother's Day tomorrow!
Happy Stamping!
