For God So Loved

I got home early enough from the Wound Clinic to join in on the fun that the Mod Squad Challenge Blog is creating with their challenge to use something from a magazine on your card or project. I chose again to make an Easter card design.


I used the cross image and the sentiment from the Sparkle N Sprinkle Stamp Set 362 Crosses. I chose lavender and egg plant card stocks for my card. I cut out the Spellbinder Labels 6 shapes and layered them together. On the front label of lavender card stock I stamped the cross in Versamark and then added fine detail gold embossing powder and heat set it. I also stamped the cross on an ad from Ruby Tuesday which showed a piece of grilled steak. I also embossed that with the gold embossing powder. I fussy cut around the image on the magazine ad and glued it to the gold cross template I created on the top label.

Before I added the layered cross design onto the base card of lavender I took some gold fiber and added that beneath it to create a bit more elegance. It is a simple design but the message is perfect for the Easter season.

I don't think you can tell it was piece of grilled steak either now. Thanks for looking and leaving lovely comments always too.

God bless,
Verna

Well, that is absolutely using something from a magazine in a way think only you would have thought and had work in a whole new context. Love it, and yes, absolutely perfect for Easter.
