Today we are featuring 2 new full sized sets and 4 new A la Cartes!  My first project features the Faith in Bloom set.  Faith in Bloom was illustrated by Emily Burger for the Embracing Grace line.  It is a full sized set with Bible verses and words of encouragement along with cute and quirky blooms!  For my card, I used the Miss Caroline Dilly Dally Collection from My Mind's Eye.  I stamped the sentiment onto the dark patterned paper in white craft ink and then embossed it with white embossing powder.  The bloom was colored with Copic markers, cut out and mounted to the card with foam tape.  I also used the new Jumbo Flower Border Die on this card. 


My second project today features the Royal Treatment Crown Die Set.  I die cut the "male" crown out of a metal sheet and the "female" crown out of white cardstock.  I added some Stardust Stickles to the "male" crown for jewels.  For the "female" crown, I covered it in Stardust Stickles and once that dried, I used a Salmon Pearl Pen to add pearl features to the crown.  The sentiment is from the new Royal Digs set.  I thought this would make a perfectly simple wedding card.
