Isaiah 40:31 - Masculine Encouragement Card

I wanted to make a card for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge #67.  This week's challenge is to make a congratulation or encouragement card.

I find making masculine cards a bit more challenging than feminine ones.  However, I needed a masculine encouragement card this week so I used the sketch from The Sweet Stop SSS84 and some papers from Bo Bunny's Olivia line and came up with this one.

I stamped my verse with Memento tuxedo black ink on cream colored cardstock.  I cut it out & embossed it with a Nestabilities deckled rectangle die.  Before I removed the die, inked the edges and partially into the center with creamy brown fluid chalk.

I couldn't find a chipboard button in my stash the right size.  So, I used my 1" circle punch to punch several circles from scraps of kraft cardstock.  I also punch one circle from my stiped paper.  I ran all of them thru my xyron and stacked them on top of each other to make my "button." I inked the edges of my button (& the rest of my papers) with the same creamy brown fluid chalk.  I used my crop-a-dile to punch the holes in my button and tied hemp thru it.  I elevated my matted verse on pop-dots.

PP - Bo Bunny (Olivia)
CS - Recollections
Ink - Memento (tuxedo black), Color Box Fluid Chalk (creamy brown)
Stamp - Sweet 'n Sassy (Jesus Cares)
Hemp twine - Hobby Lobby
Tools - Cuttlebug, Nestabilities deckled rectangle die, crop-a-dile, Marvy punch
