Priesthood... 50 years

It was quite a bit of worry when I was asked to do some cards for a priest, as it is not a subject we come across  frequently.  He was going to celebrate his 50th anniversary. Thinking and thinking soon I came with an idea that the main subject has to be to be kept simple as possible. So the main focus had  to be the holy cross.

Supplies List
  • A4 card stock
  • Embellishments
  • Skeleton leaves
  • Distress inkpads
  • Flowers
  • Sizzix Bigz Die - Ornate Crosses
  • Perfect pearls
  • Stamps - Various 
  • Sizzix Textured Impressions Embossing Folders  - Blossom, Circles, Leaves & Diamonds Set 

For this one the back ground used an embossing folder and the edges were hand cut roughly and distressed at the edges. The cross was bought some time ago on eBay, as i do not have many die cuts.

For this card  the background was stamped and perfect pearls were used over, to give it that copper look. For the cross the Sizzix ornate crosses die cut was used
