Papercraft Star Challenge #7

The Papercraft Star Challenge Blog offered up a photo inspiration for challenge #7. I went through several ideas before I settled on this little easel card. I think I may be hooked now that I know how easy they are. Lots of layering here and the yellow accents in the inspiration photo drew my eye so I rifled through my flower collection to find these little yellow Primas. Luckily I had some buttons to match! I wanted to put a Bible verse on this card so I found one I liked and printed it out on my computer. A couple of Nestie dies and voila!
Paper: Cherry Arte, DCWV, Bazzill, Recollections
Tools: Nestabilities Labels Two (S4-162)
Miscellaneous: Prima roses, buttons, hemp, Offray ribbon, Recollections adhesive pearls, brown fiber
