Stampin' Up!'s - Just Believe

Happy Hump Day Everyone,

The dog days of summer are truly in effect and these record 90 degree temperatures will continue to linger around the Southeastern Michigan region for a few more days. I am truly hoping by the weekend, things will cool off and we can all get some relief from the heat and humidity. Nonetheless, I am not complaining. It could be worst, it could be
snowing!!! LOL!

Over the weekend I was playing around with the Just Believe stamp set and put together this really stunning card. The base of the card is a 4.25 x 11 inch piece of black cardstock scored at 5.5 inches with a 4 inch piece of whisper white cardstock embossed with Stampin’ Up!’s lattice embossing folder stacked on top. 

The focal image of the card is the signature flower image from the stamp set, stamped in Basic black ink and matted onto a piece of real red cardstock. To give the card a little dimension I popped up the matted focal image with some stampin’ dimensions and placed the entire piece to the card base. To complete look of the card, I stamped the circular floral outline image in real red classic ink and popped it up as well with dimensionals for a
classic finished look.

The sentiment of this card really touches me and is why I decided to make this card in the first place. I have been believing in God for awhile for several blessings to manifest in my life. It wasn’t until I became really
serious about my prayer life and allowing God take full control of a few areas I have struggled in for years that I really began to see the manifestation of my prayers.

God is so good and he continues to show his goodness to me each and everyday.  I sincerely thank him every morning when I wake and just before I close for the night. This sentiment could never be so true for me in my
life at this time!! I truly give God all the glory and the praise. 

Until next time... Happy Stamping!!
