PASTOR CARD SET
To make this card, I first stamped the verse and ran it through the Big Shot with the rectangular die. The dsp strips were then cut at 1 1/2" wide to completely fit underneath the curved opening. (To find the width you need, measure from the top of the curve to the lowest point. Otherwise, as I learned from experience, you'll have a gap.)
After cutting the SU Pear Pizazz cs 4 1/4" x 4 3/4", I die cut the curve and attached all the pieces to the card front as shown. The leaf was cut with a die I bought at Hobby Lobby last year which has an outline die and another insert that embosses the veins in the leaf at the same time. (Sorry, I don't know the company name.) I sponged the leaf with Distress ink and attached it to the card with a SU dimensional. The pearls were added in one strip and curved to match the opening.
Although time consuming with so many steps, this was an easy card to make.
