Happy New Year!! Welcome to the first challenge at Word Art Wednesday. This week we're focusing on Deuteronomy 3:22, "Ye shall not fear them: for the Lord your God he shall fight for you." Wow! I think this is such a great verse of comfort. If the Lord is doing the fighting for us, why should we fear anything? This verse goes great with Romans 8:31, "What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?" As we look around our world and wonder what the new year may hold for us, our families and our country, we may be tempted to fear. But let's remember that the Lord is fighting for us and we have no need to fear.
For my card this week, I chose to use several products from Our Daily Bread Designs.They just released two types of Center Step card and coordinating layer dies (A2 and 5.5" square). I don't have those dies, but I do have some of their pre-cut/pre-scored Center Step card bases. I thought the center step design would show case this verse perfectly. I used a Double Stitched Rectangle die to die cut the verse. I used the Mini Vintage Label die to cut out a piece of yellow patterned paper and then cut the die cut in half. Each half was used to accent the verse panel and to hold the ribbon in place. A Fiskars butterfly punch was used to punch a butterfly from solid patterned paper and from vellum. These were attached to the ribbon on the right side of the panel. The vellum layer was coated with clear Wink of Stella for some shimmer. Some rhinestones on the butterfly and on some flower centers finish off the card.
