Hebrews 11:1 Card

I needed a card for a friend going through a rough time right now, so I got out my SU! Brushed Bouquet stamp set and three shades of pink ink and began making a panel just by stamping three different flowers from the set at random places on a panel of light pink card stock. I cut it to fit a 5X7 side-fold card base I made using a darker shade of pink. Then I added a ribbon with lacey loops on both sides of it to the left side of the top panel before adhering that down to the card base. Then I used a Verve stamp of Hebrews 11:1: "Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." I die cut the verse using a Gina Marie stitched hexagon die and then die cut a larger hexagon from the same set using another shade of pink and used that behind the verse. I added 2 die cut butterflies I created using SU!'s Butterfly Brilliance set and adhered them to the front of the card. 

For the inside of the card, I stamped the largest of the Brushed Bouquet flowers in the bottom left of the sentiment panel and then stamped a sentiment from another retired SU! set called Potted Geraniums that reads: "Reaching out with friendship and caring." That is such a great sentiment for a variety of cards. If you are interested in purchasing any retired SU! bundles at very low prices, my friend Debbie Mageed is selling many of hers and offers free shipping. Here's the current list: Bundles For Sale - Google Docs.
