To begin my card I cut a piece of purple cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scoring it at 4 1/4". I also cut a piece of green cardstock 4" x 5 1/4" and a piece of coordinating pattern paper 3 7/8" x 5 1/8".
Then I cut the cross/vine, the Prayers phrase, and the rounded rectangle panel from various colored cardstock.
Using Ranger Distress inks (Bundled Sage and Antique Linen) as well as a dark yellow Copic marker, I added some dimension to the die-cuts.
I then constructed my cross and vine, attaching the flowers with mini brads.
Because I was going to stamp an additional sentiment in black ink, I decided to shadow my "Prayers" Expressions Plus sentiment with black. To make the adherence process easier, I had run the panels of cardstock through my Xyron X sticker maker prior to cutting out the words.
I then stamped the small sentiment in the lower right-hand corner of the pale green rectangle, added the cross/vine, which were popped up with foam tape, and constructed the rest of my card.
