{Paper Smooches} Sending Hugs and Prayers


Today's card highlights the beautiful new Church Die from Paper Smooches! If you click on the middle photo, you'll see that I die cut it from linen cardstock. Love. I'm sending this to a crafty friend who recently spent a lot of time in the hospital so I created a scene for a get well card. I die cut the Super 2 Dies in the same shade as the background so they would have a dual pop-and-blend effect.


I die cut the Church a second time in gold foil, inserting the gold cross into the negative space and securing it at the back with Scor-Tape. I stacked four red hearts from Tiny Hearts Dies in the doorway. Then I die cut the hill using the Quotables Dies and cut apart the sentiment from Spiritual Stampler before stamping it along the top edge of the hill.


Thanks so much for stopping by!

This little scene is packed with so much detail! I love the gold cross, the white church vs the grey background, the curved grass and sentiment, and the sweet little heart - I guess I should say, what's not to love?!
