Here are the products I introduced:


S5-093 Crosses Two

MSRP: $24.99
PRODUCT SIZES:
1. ¾ x 1 ¼"
2. 1 ¾ x 2 ¼"
3. 1 7/8 x 2 ¾"
4. 2 7/8 x 4"
5. 3 ¼ x 4"


EL-002 Regal

MSRP: $9.99
PRODUCT SIZE:
5 x 7"
I'm excited to share with you how I put together my card that combined these two products to make this beautiful presentation.


First of all, I adhered a 1" strip of pattern paper 1/2" from the top and bottom of the card.  Then I layered a small strip of green cardstock over it.


Next, I lined up my Classic Triple Scallop edgeabilities and taped it with repositional tape on to my cardstock.


After cutting/embossing it in my Grand Calibur Machine I trimmed the straight edge to be 1" wide.  Then I adhered that over top of the cardstock strip.  After cutting a 4 x 5" rectangle from coordinating pattern paper, I layered it in the center of the card.  Over the top seam, I added a line of pearls.

To create a background for the cross, I used the same green cardstock and placed a 4 1/2 x 5" it inside the Regal M-Bossabilities folder.  Then I used Grand Ovals to cut/emboss an oval and adhered it to the center of my card using foam squares.


I cut/embossed the cross out of white cardstock and adhered it using a glue pen.


For the center of the cross, I cut/embossed a Blossoms Three #1 (#1 being the smallest) and inked the edges.  Then I snipped 1/4" toward the center on each blossom and used my fingers to scrunch it up.  After adding a pearl to the center, I adhered it to the center of the cross using a foam square.


Lastly, I tied a cream bow around the bottom of the pattern paper.  This card could be used for Easter, a baptism or many other occasions.  I decided to leave it blank so I could fill in the occasion when I need it!


I love that there are many different kinds of crosses in this set.  By layering three different crosses from this same set, I created this Faith journal to record answered prayers.  There's nothing quite like a pretty journal to write in!
