Thoughtful Banners – Words

Words are so strong.  When Will and I were in children’s ministry we did a whole lesson on how our mouth is the strongest muscle we have because it has the power of life and death.

I wanted words to speak loud and clear for today’s card – Edifying and encouraging words.  Ironically enough as I was making this card, my 10-year-old came in and begged me to let her keep this card.  She loved the words on it.

My card starts with a base of Emerald Envy.  I dry embossed some Crumb Cake with the Polka Dot embossing folder and layered it over some Whisper White and adhered it over the Emerald Envy.

To create my circles, I used three different sizes from the Layering Circles Framelits and the next larger sized scalloped circle in Emerald Envy.  I took three words from the Thoughtful Banners Stamp Set and first stamped in the center the word in Emerald Envy.  Then I used the same word, this time stamping in Crumb Cake, around it.  Under the middle circle I added some burlap just for some texture.

For the inside of my card, I covered over the top of one of the stamps from One Big Meaning (leaving just the “You” exposed) and inked it in Emerald Envy.  I then removed the washi tape and stamped the “You” in the center of the inside.
