Cross with Words

Hi guys. Today  I have a "favourite of the year" card to show off. I created this card for my brother and I'm absolutely thrilled with how it turned out!!! A friend of mine had offered the embossing folder to me before, but I thought the embossing was too big for my cards,so I never tried it. Then I decided I wanted a big cross on my brother's card (it's for his baptism)...and decided to give the embossing folder a try....

the folder itself  is 5.75"x4.25" which is the exact size of my cards...and I really didn't want to make my cards any larger...but I cut out the cross...and it became just-JUST small enough to fit onto my card! WHEW!!!

and now I'm such a big fan. I'm getting one of those for myself -- I love it!

So anyways, enough with the ramblings -- here's the card.

I used dimensional foam behind the cross to lift it a well as behind the dove image (which is a Stampin Up stamp btw).

So that's my card for the day. Thanks for stopping by and your sweet comments. :)
