Charm is deceptive and BEAUTY disappears,
but a woman who honors the Lord
should be praised.
should be praised.
Hello and Welcome! I’m excited to be doing this, my third post in conjunction with a group I recently connected with after I began using my new-last-summer Silhouette CAMEO cutting machine. It’s a monthly post to showcase projects that members of the Silhouette Challenge Group have made using these wonderful machines. I am just Loving my Silhouette CAMEO!! You'll find a list at the end here of those who are participating this month, so you can visit them, also!
For this month’s project, I made a card to honor and send to a Very Special Woman in my life. A woman who is beautiful – and also honors the Lord – has been going through some very Hard times in recent months. I had initially planned to use a cutting file from another online source which I really appreciate for the intricate designs offered there, but I decided to use one of the NEW files from MyPaperCrafting.com – where I am on the Design Team. Melin, the owner and designer, has made some [more] absolutely lovely ‘Cut and Digi files’ recently! This one caught my eye immediately and I knew what I wanted to do and for whom to make it as soon as I saw it. I have had the Rubber Stamp of the Woman in the Hat for a while and was anxious to use it for this, too.
I grew up wearing hats to church, as it was a requirement in that denomination, and I continued as a grown woman – back in the day when people ‘dressed up’ to attend church (back in the Midwest). I LOVE hats and still wear them as often as I can for various activities. (No one wears them to church any more… *sad *)
Here is my card –
* The file I used was the ‘Square w/ Oval Flourished Frame card cf’ of which I cut the card base and the Oval Flourished Frame from light lavender cardstock. (I know it looks gray in these photos, but it really is light lavender - the same paper as the flowers on her hat - the same shade as the background on my blog.) I then matted the flourished frame on white and then black cardstock - all sized to fit in the cutting file.
* I stamped the Lady in the Hat (KK Originals) on white cardstock and cut her out. I carefully inked the cut edges with black, so the white wouldn’t show. I added a black velvet ribbon to the hat crown and then some tiny punched olive green leaves and light lavender Hydrangea blossoms to cover the band/flower motif on the stamp and add depth, interest and color. I added silver gilt from a DeccoColor Liquid Silver pen.
* I adhered the Lady with large foam PopDots to raise her above the Oval. I added black gems (Recollections) to several of the flourish ends.
* I stamped the ‘Thinking of You’ sentiment on a lavender scalloped-edge square and inked the edges in black. I adhered it inside, leaving space for writing a personal note.
Here is the File I used –
