Teach Me Your Paths

I've decided to play along with the Our Daily Bread challenges again this week.  The latest challenge, ODBDSLC48, is as follows:

This week the challenge team would like to see your creations using our "Have a H.E.A.R.T." recipe. You must use three of these ingredients.

H= Hemp
E= Embossing
A=Any Our Daily Bread Images or Sentiments
R= Ribbon or lace
T= Tearing or distressing

I chose to do E = Embossing, A = ODBD image and T = tearing or distressing.

This also fits for the current Stamping In Time challenge, SNTODBD28, to use distressing.  I didn't know ODBD had these challenges too.  Fun, Fun!  The other requirement is to mail this off to someone in real life distress as an encouragement. 

Now I know this isn't the typical card you see using Our Daily Bread Designs.  They are usually gorgeous and ornate.  I'm not an *ornate* crafter, but more importantly, I just felt like making a CAS card showcasing a wonderful scripture verse.  "Show me your ways, O Lord, teach me your paths."  I know this card will be an encouragement to my friend.

I heat embossing the verse in silver EP.  It really does look pretty cool IRL.  I distressed the edges of the white cardstock with Basic gray ink.  I also distressed the black cardstock with an edge distresser.

Stamps:  The Path of life (ODBD)
Paper:  white, black (PTI), Basic Gray (SU!)
Ink:  White (memories), Versamark, Basic Gray (SU!)
Accessories:  Silver EP, Long Rectangle Nesties, edge distresser
