Faith, Hope, Love



It started with THIS and THIS, which arrived earlier this week in a Stamper's Dream package. I added THIS, which has been in my stash for a while but hasn't gotten nearly enough attention. The result? A complete takeover of my craft room. I can't seem to stop! But I'm going to be mean and show you only one of my cards today.

I love all the vintage images Graphic 45 incorporates into their paper designs - the tiny postage stamp images on today's card, for example. They're from a pattern in the Le Romantique collection. The whole 8"x8" sheet is covered with these little darlings. It would make a gorgeous background layer indeed, but for today, I cut a few strips of them to use as accent layers instead. The "Faith, hope, love" sentiment is from JustRite's Loving Thoughts set.

Along the bottom are three strips of various trims: Webster's Pages Bloomers Fabric Flower Trim in that gorgeous soft peach color, some luscious Maya Road velvet scalloped ricrac, and some rich brown lace from the Sea & Garden Trim Collection by Webster's Pages. Hand stitching, distressed edges, distress inks and buttons round out the shabby, romantic look.



On the inside, I included a Congratulations sentiment from JustRite's All Occasion Nested Centers & Verse set. Anyone getting married? This needs a good home!

Hugs!
