I will refresh the weary

Hi everyone! Hope you’re having a fantastic day! I’ve popped in this afternoon to share another sample I created for Prickley Pear Stamps! I’m having the best time ever playing with these amazing stamps and dies! I created a spiritual friendship card using the beautiful He Refreshes My Soul clear stamp set.

I went with a rustic look, keeping with a neutral palette. I chose to leave the image uncolored, and heat embossed it using my favorite trick of stamping in dark brown, then stamping again in Versamark and applying clear embossing powder. I created a layered panel for the background and adhered it to the card base. I adhered a piece of dark brown patterned paper to the layered background and stamped the sentiment beneath it in the dark brown ink. I cut a strip of corrugated kraft and rubbed the dark brown ink pad over the ribs, adhered it to the back of the focal image, then adhered the piece to the card base.

I embellished the layered inside panel with a narrow strip of the dark brown patterned paper used on the front, and then stamped the sentiment in the dark brown ink.

And one more look… super happy with how this turned out! What a gorgeous image and sentiments in this set!
