Scripture Card Set

Hi friends!  I'm back with another card set using the Viva la Verve December One Sheet Wonder template.  This card set was a gift for my mom's birthday earlier this year and is the set that inspired the challenge.  I'm loving seeing every one's take on the challenge and have posted my weekly picks for the Viva la Viewfinder over on the VLV Sketches blog today.

For the card set, I went a little shabby chic, using verses from the Scripture Medley 2 set, some gorgeous My Mind's Eye papers, a bit of lace trim, and some butterflies made with the  Flutterby Die and some chocolate pearls.

The base panel is cream cardstock that was embossed with an embossing folder, then I distressed the edges with ink and a paper distresser. For the Joy card, I used the banner piece as a sash, but didn't really like the way it kind of looked a bit like I was slashing out joy, so changed up the template when I made the challenge to move the banner above.

The butterfly embellishments are made by die cutting two of the  Flutterby Die from so saffron cardstock that had been embossed with the same embossing folder as the main panel.  I inked up the edges and then layered them together, adhering only in the center, then folding the wings on the top butterfly up and embellishing with some dark chocolate pearls.

On this final card, I loved the whimsical look to slightly skewing the verse.  I also turned the square as well to balance things out, Then finished off with a flower from my stash.

Well, that's all from me.  I hope you have a fabulous weekend!  We've got extended family gatherings Saturday and Sunday, as well as our 17th wedding anniversary tomorrow!
