He Will Direct Your Paths!

Hi everyone!  Happy Monday!  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  We're still praying for rain here in Indiana, and praying for the rest of our nation as well!   Until it cools down, I have plenty to do play in my stamp room!!!

This is a graduation card I made for my 2nd cousin, Taryn, who just graduated....her fave colors are purple and black, so I instantly thought of the mirror paper which I picked up from the ODBD show booth last year.  To create the frame, I cut the eggplant piece at 5-1/4 x 5-1/4, then centered a Spellbinders Square Nestabilities die, holding it in place with some scotch tape while running it through my Spellbinders Grand Calibur.  The Grand Calibur is not only big enough to cut several things out at a time, but there is rarely a need to use the embossing mat since the pressure during the cutting embosses it too!  Yay!  The black inside mat to the frame was cut out in black mirror paper with the next smallest square die.  The white cardstock mat was stamped with the Our Daily Bread designs "Bird Border and Corners" set, the scripture is from "For the Graduate", and the congrats sentiment is from the "As You Graduate" set.  The "Italian Flourish" doily and "Exotic Butterfly Small" are from Cheery Lynn Designs......Our Daily Bread designs carries quite a few of their detailed cutting'll have to check them out!

Wow, very pretty! I love the purple & white, your combo of stamps & dies and that mirror paper!! This is one of my favorite verses, the one that comes to mind often. I've tried to memorize other scripture over the years, but this is one that has stuck! :)
