Isaiah 40:8 Screen Card With Wisteria Wishes Bundle

I recently set a goal to use all the SU! bundles I have purchased since last September when I began using their stamps and dies, so this week I chose Wisteria Wishes and began making some cards using that bundle. It's a beautiful set with layered stamps and dies that I just love. 

I chose a screen card design so I could have several wisteria groupings hanging down from the top. I used my Silhouette Cameo 4 to cut out the card base using a cut file from the Silhouette Design Store. After cutting the light blue card stock for the base using my Cameo, I then ran the card base through my eBosser using SU!'s stitched greenery die. The die imprints a stitched background but doesn't cut out an outline, so I was able to just move move the die around to cover all four panels of the screen card. Then I did some ink blending with three different colors of blue ink to make a nice sky background on the 4 panels. 

I die cut some green patterned card stock to make the branches/leaves, and then I die cut several layers of wisteria die cuts out of white card stock. There's a larger layer for the back and a smaller layer for the top of the wisteria bunches, and I die cut multiple layers of both so that I would end up with a lot of dimension to the flowers. I used my blending brushes to blend purple ink on the layers that would show after I adhered all the layers together. I used Art Glitter liquid glue to adhere all the flower layers together and used it to adhere the branches and flowers to the screen card base. For the sentiment panel, I stamped the green branch and purple two-step wisteria stamps from the SU! bundle and then stamped the verse from Isaiah over the bottom of the flowers using black Memento ink. I did a little fussy cutting and then used foam tape to adhere that part to the screen card base. The verse is a favorite of mine: The grass withereth, the flower fadeth, but the word of our God stand forever. --Isaiah 40:8 (King James Version). I'm sorry I don't recall where I purchased the stamp from. 

To finish the card, I added a couple Spellbinders butterfly die cuts to the first and last panels.

  2. Carrie, I have never made this fun fold and it's been around for so long. The Wisteria is perfect for it. Your ink blending is perfect. Thank you for entering the Creative Creases Challenge and I think I'll give the screen fold a try. I'll just have to figure out what stamp set to use because I didn't get the Wisteria Wishes stamp set.
