Inspired Stamps DT Choice

 Hello everyone it is Thursday and that means more projects showcasing Inspired Stamps images.  This week was a DT choice.  I chose to make a more masculine card to honor Pastors, since October is Pastor Appreciation Month.  I know there is a flower on the card, but it is not very frilly, so I think it works.  I think my Pastor and his wife would appreciate receiving this card.  I hope it inspires you to pull out your supplies and make a special card for your Pastor this month and let him know you appreciate all his hard work.

DT choice:  Using Names of Jesus and Christmas verses stamp sets from Inspired Stamps.

Here is the inside of my card: I used John 3:16 from the Christmas verses stamp set.

Card Details:
Stamps:  Christmas verses, Names of Jesus Inspired Stamps
Ink:  Firebrick red, Black soot, Vintage Photo, Old Paper, Distressed Inks; rich cocoa, Memento; watermark, Versamark
Paper: kraft, mellow moss, SU!; burgandy, white, The Paper Company
Tools: bracket border, Fiskars; accordian flower and embossed leaf, Sizzix, scalloped circle punch, Fiskars, Sizzix embossing folder
