For today's feature, I created a card using the Flared Cross Plain Jane, Jeremiah 33:3 Plain Jane and the Cross Die Set.  The paper is from the Campfire Collection by October Afternoon.  I thought the plaid paper gave the card a more masculine feel. 

I stamped the sentiment onto the card base first.  Then I cut away the paper to frame the sentiment.  I die cut the cross and then stamped it and mounted it onto the card with foam tape.  I added a little stitching to the card and a tiny rhinestone to the center of the cross. 

Thanks for stopping by today!  Please stop back tomorrow for another peek of what's being released this Friday!
