Rainbow of faith cards

Hello friends-we all have times when we can use some support or encouragement, or just knowing someone is on our side, and the sentiments on these Bella Blvd and Simple Stories faith-based papers were perfect, as was the cheery rainbow-coloured background paper. I love so many of the Gypsy Soul frames and have been looking for a chance to incorporate some of them into my projects, and I think they worked really well on my cards.

I cut all the card bases 5" x 61/2" and the patterned paper slightly smaller, trying to create a fairly even cardstock edge. I lightly distressed and inked the edges of the patterned paper, then used Lindy's Stamp Gang embossing powder on all three of my frames.

For this card, I used one of the Evie flourished frames, which I primed with black acrylic paint before heat embossing with Lindy's Midnight Gold. I added some bling, fussy cut flowers and a Prima rose.

This card was made using the flourished frame Karen, which  was primed in white, then heat embossed with Lindy's Silver Moon Turquoise.  Again I added some fussy cut elements and a flower from my stash. A few golden pearls completed the look.

The third card features the flourished frame Elizabeth and was primed with teal acrylic paint, heat embossed in Lindy's Merry-Go-Round Green, then rubbed with Versacolor Turquoise ink. I was going for a certain shade to coordinate with the papers and was happy with the way these colours combined.Chunky pearl hearts and tiny pink roses were added for texture and interest.

These cards were easy to put together and can be created with a variety of sentiments and papers using these beautiful and versatile frames to set them off-I hope to see how you are inspired to use them! Thanks so much for stopping by!
