If God Brings You To It; He Will Bring You Through It

Hi friends.  Today I’m sharing another card showcasing some more of the new vintage dies from Cheery Lynn Designs along with some gorgeous ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I just love the new Dusty Miller Square and Dusty Miller Corner dies.  They are just so versatile.  I tend to stick with 5-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ square cards though and the corners were just a little too big.  This was easily remedied by snipping them where the to parts meet up and layering them.  They then became just the right size for this card.

My card design is pretty straight forward.  I created a piece of background paper using Distress Inks in old paper, antique linen and frayed burlap.  That was layered on a piece of dark brown and then I added my die cuts.

Next I added a layered strip of ribbon using Turftan Brown Delicated Stitched Satin Ribbon topped with Gold and Copper Diamond Print Grosgrain Ribbon and secured it on the back of the large dark brown base.  Then I added a layer of natural mulberry paper with torn edges.  That was then adhered to my card base.

I stamped my sentiment on to a piece of the Distress Ink paper and cut with the Vintage Bracket Shape die set, added a layer of kraft card stock and then backed with brown mulberry paper.  This was then added to the card over the ribbon using foam tape for some dimension.

Cheery Lynn Dies used:
B884 Dusty Miller Square
B883 Dusty Miller Frame Corner
B889 Vintage Bracket Shape set 

My card was finished off with a pretty bi-color bow made on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using Raw Silk and Turftan Brown Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I added an Antique Bronze Vintage Flower Charm to the bow center.

Sending Love to You Card

Hi friends.  Today I have another card featuring some of the Vintage New Release dies from Cheery Lynn Designs along with lovely ribbon from the July Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  What a great combination!

My card today features the Vintage Hot Air Balloon Die set from the new Vintage release.  This is such a fun die with amazing detail.  Just look at that basket.
This is a two piece set and there is a die included which will but out the balloon portion for you so you can make it any color you want.  No fussy cutting needed!
My sentiment was stamped on one of the Weathered Scrolls dies.  In order to get the dark back layer, I traced around the die and cut in dark purple.

I also pulled out my Whimsical Sun & Clouds die set and cut a variety of clouds to use in my sky.

Cheery Lynn Dies used:

My card was topped off with a bi-color bow made on my Bow-it-All V3.0 tool using two of the ribbon styles in the July Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I then added a pretty Pearl Star Shaped Embellishment to the center of the bow.
