Beautiful Blessings and makeshift edgers

I was really inspired by a card layout Debbie Olsen did during the PTI countdown (last card on this post), where she used the edgers as a layer on her card. Not having the edger I wanted, i decided to improvise with a spellbinders die - label 5 to be exact.

I used some pp from my stash, and a verse from Beautiful blessings - this set has a perma spot on my desk !!


I also took the flourish from Mat stack 2 and stamped it on the cutout, creating a bit of a frame. The sentiment looks a bit splotchy as it was coloured with markers (SU) but I think it sort of matches the antiquey look of the card. coloured some paper flowers gray..a little paper rose...done !!
Sorry for the glare on the plastic bag..this one is was destined for the church bookstore and I almost forgot to take a photo of it !!


  1. Rose this is beautiful! I love the paper you chose and the flourish stamped on the cutout. It was great to see you again in person. Just wish we had more time.

  2. I was gonna say "hey, not a wedding card" butttt....the scripture certainly is perfect for weddings *giggles* So the colors...and the way you did some of the sentiment in different colors for effect.

  3. Lovely card, Rose. The colours are just fab and well done with the improvised edgers - the spellbinders work so well.

  4. Gosh not sure how I missed this card, but it sure is beautiful. I love all the swirly flourishy gorgeousness. Beautiful edging work and that sentiment...perfect.
