Stampin' Up! Trust God greeting card

I ran across a card by Jen Shultz (for Verve) that just caught my breath. I enjoy making CAS (clean and simple cards) but sometimes a girl's just gotta go multi-layered.

Project Notes:

  • Each layer was lightly sponged with Very Vanilla pigment ink.
  • The edges were roughened by rubbing the side of my Paper Snips along the edge. Distressing Tools were made for this purpose, I just didn't have one handy :)
  • The heart is a punch out; I used my Paper Trimmer and scoring blade to score lines on a slight diagonal. Sponging the ink into these grooves emphasizes the line.
  • The sentiment (from Trust God) was heat embossed using White Embossing Powder.

Not as breath-taking as Jen's, but it'll do.
