Under His Wings...

Good morning friends~  There's nothing more comforting to me when I'm struggling with something, than the promises of God's word and I love making cards to share with others who might be going through a tough time.  A heartfelt note in a time of need is good medicine.

I'm up at the Dies R Us blog today with a card of comfort.

I started by lightly blending some Peacock Feathers Distress Ink onto an A2 sized top folding card base.

I cut the Memory Box Honeycomb Collage out of a piece of white cardstock cut to the same size as the card and then trimmed off the left side from corner to corner so it would only cover a portion of the card front.

I cut three Elizabeth Craft Designs Small Butterflies using the detailed die cut out of white card stock and the solid die cut out of three soft colored card stocks
and then layered them.

I stamped the verse on the top left corner and assembled my card as shown.

Here's a list of products I used that can be found at Dies R Us:
Memory Box - Dies - Honeycomb Collage  Elizabeth Craft Designs - Small Butterfly
