Our Daily Bread - Crocheted Poppy Card

ETA 5/5/16: I was so pleased to see that this card was featured today on the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog as the Customer Card of the Day!  Thank you so much!

Hi there!  I have a card I created as a combination of challenges.  Sometimes I like to focus just on one challenge, and sometimes a few will just all come together to make the decisions about cardmaking easy. 

(Click on photos for a larger image.)

The challenges were to use a circle, lace and a scripture verse.  The lace is the crocheted frame of my stamp, which is so pretty!  I stamped the remainder of the verse inside, since there was not enough room on the outside for the whole thing.  I added a frame of score lines, too.

I decided that I wanted to make the stamp look like stained glass, so after coloring with water-based markers, I used my Versamarker all over the circle so I could add several layers of clear embossing powder.  I did 3-4 layers, until I thought it looked right.

A lot of my family members really like the card to have some shine!  

Supplies: Our Daily Bread Crocheted Poppy, Our Daily Bread Seed Packet (Sentiment), Versafine Smokey Grey ink, Tombow markers, Versamarker, Recollections Clear Detail Embossing powder, Ranger watercolor paper, Gina K Designs Ocean Mist cardstock

I would love to participate in the following challenges:


  1. This is just lovely and a great interpretation of the challenge! I love the embossed panel - it really makes those colors pop, and I like the scoring around the edges too - it's a real touch of elegance!

  2. Your card is absolutely stunning!! I so love the coloring of the image and your choice of colors!! Gorgeous card!! Thanks for joining us at ODBD!! I hope to see you join us again! Your work is very inspiring!

  6. Oh, Heidi, this card is gorgeous, and I'm so glad you've added your blog post link so I could see all the photos where it really does look like stained glass (and I know, because I used to do stained glass). What beautiful coloring, sweet friend! So glad you've entered this in the ODBD Shining the Light Challenge. Hugs! xoxo

  7. Such a phenomenal card Heidi! Love the embossing and what a smart idea to frame your card using the scoring lines! So Clever!

  8. Do you do bible journaling Heidi? This would be great in your bible.

    1. I have not, Sharon, but I do think you are right it would look good. :) My Bible does not have the empty part on the sides for journaling, but I do think it is a cool idea and enjoy seeing what people are doing on their blogs.

  9. Your focal area is lovely and I really like the added shine. So glad you shared your creation at Tuesday Throwdown.
