New digistamps at Digistamps4Joy (24 Feb.2013)

This digistamp "The empty Cross" is one of the new ones I drew and is in my shop Digistamps4Joy. As a Christian and an animal lover, I combined the two into one image.
I thought I would give this new fold a try after seeing it in the latest local scrapbooking magazine. Unfortunately not all the measurements were provided, so I ended up having to resort to some basic mathematics and my trusty ruler (with one flop cut). It's actually a very pretty fold once completed, you just have to be careful about the top papers that you cut them smaller than the base of the card, otherwise the card will not fold up! I think I would also have preferred to make the 'spine' a little wider so that the card stands better. mmm, will have to look into those measurements again!

I diecut around the image, chalked the edges, and coloured the image with H2O pens. The bling on this card is the gold peel offs (including a ribbon peel off) and the diecut swirls out of glitter card (very difficult to get through the diecutter). I then added some pastel pink and maroon roses, and curled the stems. The embellishments were quick to add, it was all the cutting and resizing of the papers that took ages!

New items used - new digistamp, background Christian paper, and roses
Old items used - dark maroon paper from stash, peel offs.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
All Sorts Challenge - animals
Catch the bug - color challenge
Paper Creators - all things flowery
Sparkle and glitter with Rick - all things I love
Stempel sonne - bingo (I used flowers, lace & sentiment)
Sweet pea stampers - use a digistamp
Chalk 'n stock - anything goes, just use chalk
Lady Annes - anything goes + sentiment
