I really like this week's Word Art Wednesday focus verse. It is Philippians 4:19, "But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus." The phrase "My God" reminds me that He's someone I know personally and can enjoy a close relationship with Him. "Shall supply" reminds me that He WILL be faithful. "All your need" means He won't skip any of my needs, He'll meet all of them. "According to His riches" means He's using His own resources to supply my needs. Since He owns everything, no need is ever too great/expensive for Him to provide. "In glory by Christ Jesus" means I can claim Him as my God because of Jesus' work at Calvary and to Him be the glory.
Be sure to stop by the Word Art Wednesday blog to pick up your beautiful FREE digi of this verse. Even if you never use it on a project, print it out and put it where you can see it frequently. It will be a great reminder that God is always faithful.
A couple week's ago, I saw a "new to me" card fold on Karin's blog. I love different card folds and so this week I gave it a try. She didn't give a name or dimensions to her card fold so I'm not sure what it's called nor what size she made her card. ETA: I've discovered it's called a "Z-fold" card. Beate has a great tutorial on her blog here. Completely folded, my card is 4.5" high by 6" wide. The base cardstock is 4.5" x 12". I scored it on the 12" side at 3" & 6". I folded it as a normal card on the 6" score line and then folded the front backwards at the 3" score line. This gives you a "hidden" panel on the inside that measures 3" wide by 4.5" high to decorate.
I combined this week's Scripture digi with an outline digi from the Morning Devotions digi set by Clear Dollar Stamps. I colored the Bible & coffee cup with my copics. After die-cutting the panel, I sponged it before removing it from the die. I hand-cut the mat. I layered this panel on the largest floral oval Spellbinders die. I only attached the left side to the front panel and embellished it with 3 Prima flowers. I used some Crystal Effects on the coffee in the cup. A trio of pearls accent the front panel and another trio accent the inside panel.
Here is an over-head view of the card:
The inside panel was also sponged with the same pink ink and a coordinating rub-on was added to the bottom left corner.
I'm using the "hidden panel" as the spot to write a short message to the recipient. It is a piece of the base cardstock die-cut & sponged and then layered over the next to largest floral oval Spellbinders.
