Happy weekend Crafters, 


I am here today to share this gorgeous card creation by our DT member Sandie. 

Sandie has appropriately given this card the title 'Faith'

where the materials used to put this gorgeous creation together. 




Sandie shares her steps to create this card at home. 


To create the card I trimmed the Have Faith paper to slightly smaller than card front. Adhere in place. 

I used a 2.5inch circle die for the Fortunate circle and a 2inch circle die for the Miracles circle.  
I used a distress tool to rough up the edges of the circles then added foam tape between each layer. 


The centre flower is from the collectables range, I cut away the leaves,  coloured the centre with Copics and added some dimensional magic to the centre.


Cut a stem from the Miracles paper and attach behind the flower. Add two leaves from the collectables range.

Adhere sentiment to card using foam tape. Tie a small bow and attach to sentiment.
 



Thank you Sandie, 

Happy Creating all and thank you for stopping by.
