I made this card for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ John 3:30 (He must increase, I must decrease) Challenge. Here's the challenge from the blog:
Challenge: You have three choices this week: 1. Make a CAS (clean and simple) card (representing "you" needing to decrease); or 2. Make a "More is More" card, (representing that He must INCREASE); or 3. Show us a simple version of a card and then show us the "More is More" version.
I chose option #2.It is 6 x 6, has layers, inking, rub-ons, ribbon, bling, etc., etc. :) For me, More is More comes much easier than CAS.
I also used this week's sketch from CPS for the design.
I found this tutorial on SCS that I used to make my decorative edged circle in the background of my card. You definitely need to stick to 20# paper when using this technique. This paper is obviously more like 24# and it almost didn't work. With a little encouragement from my scissors I was able to make the last layers cut thru. Then I used Labels 4 for the sentiment block & the mat for it. The sentiment was stamped with VersaMark & then embossed in black.
