Elizabeth Craft Designs Suzanne Cannon Way with words Faith 1

Hello Crafty Friends!  Kathy Jo here sharing a Faith card using the lovely, newly released A Way With Words die, Faith, by Suzanne Cannon.  Also used on the card are the oh-so-sweet flowers from the Susan’s Garden Club Hydrangea die set and the elegant Oval Flourish Frame Edges die set from Karen Burniston’s Pop it Ups collection.

To make this card

  1. Create a 5.5 x 4.25″ tent-fold card from white card stock.
  2. Die cut frame using light green card stock and the Oval Flourish Frames die set.  Adhere to card front using liquid glue.
  3. Die cut Faith from lilac card stock twice.  Apply Dusty Concord Distress Ink onto one of the die cuts.
  4. Die cut leaves and flower base using light green card stock and Hydrangea die set.  Apply Peeled Paint Distress Ink to both the base and the leaves.
  5. Apply Dusty Concord Distress Ink to lilac paper.  Die cut flowers using Hydrangea die set.Elizabeth Craft Designs Suzanne Cannon Way with words Faith 3
  6. Mount text, flowers, and leaves to card front as shown using liquid glue.  Apply Gold Stickles to center of flowers. Option: For more dimensional and realistic flowers, use Susan’s Garden Club shaping tools and follow Susan Tierney-Cockburn’s video tutorial.

Notice that a partial section of the Faith swirl overlapped the Hydrangea leaves.  The overlap is a visual anchor for the text.  It prevents the Faith from “floating” on the card.
