God Arms Me with Strength


Card size: 5 x 7”. This card is vertical and has a top-fold so the first step is to cut 2 pieces of white cardstock, one 5 1/2 x 7 1/2" and one 5 1/2 x 7 1/4". On the first 5 1/2 x 7 1/2", score at 1/2" then fold in. Place the outer die of the Flourish Companion over the folded edge about 1/4" then run through the die cutting machine. Place the die on the second piece and run through machine. Glue the 2 together matching sides and bottom (top piece will overhang fold about 1/4"). Cut another front from the black decorative paper. Glue to card front.

Place the next size (decorative die) from the Flourish Companion set on gold and on pink decorative paper then cut through both. Use the gold on the black and use the inner pink on the inside of the gold die cut.

Stamp the Curvy Floral Frame using embossing ink on the black decorative paper then emboss with gold powder and die cut. Stamp the sentiment using black on light pink decorative paper then die cut with the Curvy Floral Frame, use just the inside stamped portion of the die cut. (Tape them together on the back in a few places).
Cut a piece of Fun Foam to fit under the sentiment, glue it to the bottom of sentiment/frame then glue to center of card.

Stamp poppies using Rose Madder ink and using Carnation, sponge with Rose Madder, die cut, sponge edges, some with Rose Matter and some with Carnation then shape in the mold. Glue 2 flowers per poppy (except bud, it is 1). Stamp centers only of the small and medium poppies, sponge with green, punch out with hole punches or fussy cut then glue to the centers of poppies after shaping in a bowl shape. (it helps to dab some hot glue under the bowls to help them keep their shape). Make a line of liquid glue around poppy centers then fill with Power Outage Prills, remove any Prills covering the centers. For the bud: stamp side out, form to close. Punch a small green flower from decorative paper then glue under bud.

Arrange 2 poppies on top left corner of frame and 3 on the bottom right of frame. Use sponge with glue to glitter flowers and card around sentiment.

Optional: inside, cut another outer die cut of the Flourish Companion from dark pink then glue. Sponge edges with black.
