God's Work of Art

Materials needed:
Lovely As a Tree stamp set (#115026)
Trust God stamp set (#126702)
International Bazaar patterned paper (#126920) 4 x 5 1/4"
Smoky Slate card stock 2 1/2 x 4 3/4"
White card stock
Wisteria Wonder card stock 4 1/4 x 5 1/2"
Brads Subtles collection (#119738)
Extra large Oval punch (#119859)
3/16" Corner punch (#119871)
Burlap (I got mine at Hobby Lobby)
Gumball Green ink pad
Old Olive marker
Green Galore marker
Early Espresso marker
Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430)

1. Round the corners on the patterned paper and the Smoky Slate card stock.
2. Use the Green Galore marker to color the leaves on the tree stamp from Lovely As a Tree set. Use the Early Espresso marker to color the trunk and the Old Olive to color the ground. Give it a huff and stamp it onto some white card stock.
 3. Choose your saying from the Trust God stamp set. Stamp it in Gumball Green ink on to white card stock.
4. Punch the saying out with the Extra Large Oval punch. Cut around the tree image. Adhere the tree image to the left side of the Smoky Slate card stock. Place some Stampin' Dimensionals on the back of the greeting/saying. Adhere it to the right side of the Smoky Slate card stock.
5. Adhere the patterned paper to the Wisteria Wonder card stock leaving an 1/8" border all the way around.
6. Place adhesive on the back of the Smoky Slate cardstock. Press one edge of the burlap onto the adhesive. Leave about 1/2" of the burlap sticking off the bottom of the Smoky Slate piece. It won't hold very well but it will keep it there for a while. With the burlap strip on the back of the Smoky Slate card stock, press the entire piece onto the patterned paper with the top of the piece about 3/4" from the top of the patterned paper.
7. Punch 3 holes under the burlap through the patterned paper and the Wisteria Wonder card stock. Choose brads that coordinate with the colors to put through the burlap and the card stock. This will give the burlap a better attachment to the card than just the adhesive.
8. Adhere the card front to the card base.  Enjoy experimenting with some different mediums in your card making. I always have lots of fun when I try something that's new for me.
