Now onto my card:


I used the fabulous Cathedral Window-Marble for the front of my card.  I colored the glass with copics and then clear embossed the entire window.  I used the ODBD/Spellbinders Cathedral Window and Border die to cut the window out.  The background was made with the Vintage Border Embossing plate that is now retired.  Notice the hardware along the side of the window...


 So when you open the window, you see out onto the ocean scene!  This is The Waves on the Sea set!  I stamped the scripture on the inside of the window.  I trimmed a piece of card stock to the size of the window to secure all the front window pieces.  I made a little hinge and used Scor-Tape to adhere it.  In fact I used lots of Scor-Tape on this card to be sure the window would stay in place!  The ocean scene is embossed in black and sponged, using a circle for a mask to create the moon.  


After putting everything together, I thought to myself that the front of the card was a little plain and didn't highlight the beautiful cathedral window.  So I added the Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish and a few flowers and pearls.  Once I had that all glued down good, I realized...there probably aren't too many cathedrals with vines and flowers growing up the walls on the inside of the building!!!
Oh well, it is what it is!!!

Here is what's on the back of my card!
The new ODBD Logo Handmade by stamp with the lighthouse from the very first ODBD stamp set, Light of the World!
 Love it!


Here are all the ODBD supplies I used:

Thanks again for joining us today!  We really appreciate y'all so much!!!
