Crafters of Faith ~ Make A Wish

Today is the last day of the month and I am here to welcome you to my Crafters of Faith card! The Crafters of Faith blogging group is a joyous blending of Christian friends ~ joined together to fellowship, share our faith, build friendships and craft together!

This is our February Challenge—as posed by the one and only Tami:  I have a crafting tool that I just had to have and have hardly used. Does that sound remotely familiar?! I think you all may have the same tool in your arsenal. I would like you to drag out your scoring tool. Scor-Pal mini, biggie, Martha mini, biggie or if you do not have one of those, I am sure that you may have a scoring blade on your paper cutter. SCORE!!! It would be fun to see how you all incorporate scoring onto your card. You know I am into 'use what'cha got', so if you do not have a scoring tool of any sort, please create without this element. Oh and I do not mean just a score to fold your card base in half! LOL

While it is a 'lovely' month February, let's create a card that is not Valentine's themed. That being said, it is the second part of this challenge. Let's not use Valentine theme, red, pink or white colors anywhere on our cards. That includes the paper you stamp your image on....*gasp*!

For our third element, how about we place both an image and a sentiment on the front of the card.

Well, that ought to keep us busy {now what am I going to do?! LOL} I am looking forward to seeing your projects. I get the best ideas from you girls.

I do have a scoring “tool”—in fact I have two.  I used my little Scor-Buddy for this card and that sits by my craft desk.  I have had two of the original Scor-Pal in the past and have sold both of them at a LSS rummage to get the newest and best.  In fact—I just sold the second one this month and bought the Martha Steward one so I can get some of the new SU scoring plates to use with it.

So—I went basic and scored an ½ inch on the card and highlighted the scores by using striped DSP going in the opposite direction.  I was a bit more challenged by the no white part of the challenge—so I thought I would emboss on black cardstock.  I tried a few colors before I came up with gold and I think it turned out well.  And—the sentiment and image are all in one—on the front of the card!  I just got this Whipper Snapper stamp a few weeks ago—and many of you know how I love that place!  However—I did show a bit of my rebel side by not totally following directions—just a bit………………………….  Did you see it?
Here is the inside of my card:

Image/Sentiment—Whipper Snapper Make A Wish

Cardstock—PTI Black, Gold, Vanilla; Stampin’ Up Mocha Morning DSP


Accessories—Gold Embossing Powder; Score-Buddy; SU Glimmer Brads; Stickles

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you do check out the other new creations from the wonderful ladies in the Crafters of Faith group! The blog list is on the left side--please check out all of the cards.
