Lattice Fence Gate-Morning Prayer Card

Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love,
    for I have put my trust in you.
Show me the way I should go,
    for to you I entrust my life.
Psalm 143 : 8

Hello!  How is YOUR summer going?  Summer brings lots of changes for many people and there are changes in the schedule on, so I’ll be posting with other Design Team members once a week – either on a Wednesday or a Thursday – through the next couple of months.  Melin has been working hard and has come up with Many new files for us to showcase for you.  I hope you’ll see what I come up with each week!

This week I decided to use one of the newer cut files that Melin has made, the ‘Fence Lattice Panels-Border CF’ – and make a Double Side Step Card to illustrate a quiet morning ‘walk and talk with God’ in the forest…  I used to live where this was possible (on Mt. Diablo in mid-California) and I really miss being able to walk out my door, through the gate and into the woods, so to speak.

The stillness of the forest waking up – birds beginning to sing – squirrels skittering among the fallen leaves – water quietly flowing in the creek – the smell of pine and eucalyptus – only two of us ‘walking and talking’ – God and me -

I looked long and hard Online (Pinterest) for just the right photo of morning sunrise, finding several which I’ll use at other times and finally deciding on this one for this card.  Then, using my PSE 10 program, I added the above-stated verse in yellow to the bottom of the photo and printed it to fit in the center of the card.  I used the colors from the photo to make the card (sage cardstock), the front dark green panels, the dark brown gates and the flower spray ‘on the path to the woods.’  I dry embossed the front dark green panels using my Cuttlebug and then lightly added Gold ink on the swirls.  I matted the photo on sunshine yellow cardstock.

Here is the file I used –
