Cards with Textured Card Stock

From Adriel:

I put this set of cards in our Etsy shop a few days ago and thought I'd share them with you. We got some white textured card stock last week and I made a set of cards with it. Textured card stock is a lot of fun and adds a little bit "more" to your card! =)

I used accents of Kiwi Kiss and Not Quite Navy to set off the white. I used a couple of retired sets from Stampin' Up! I used the Doodle This set for the flowers. I wanted to do something different than what I've been doing lately, so I used the wonderful scripture verses in the Elegant Inspirations set for the focal points on each of the cards. I embossed these verses with white embossing powder, so they really stand out! I also added white stitching and some paper piercing and embellishments. We had just been to Michael's and my mom had gotten some cute ribbon. It matched perfectly with the cards I made! I also finished the insides with colored cardstock and white card stock again and stamped images. I used the blurred vision technique on the inside images.

They look refreshing and I hope they refresh the spirit of whoever may receive them. Maybe you need some refreshing. Here's one of the verses printed out for you. May it refresh you! =)

"By day the Lord directs His love, at night His song is with me." Psalms 42:8

Ohh I love these, so very pretty. :-) I might just have to pick up my Scribble This set and have a play.
Cheers, Karen
