Today's card uses the last of the scripture verse sentiments in the Courage and Faith stamp set.

This card uses the Impressions of Tarnished Foil Technique that I demonstrated a couple of weeks ago on my Facebook Page and YouTube Channel.  If you missed it, you can watch a replay here.

This technique makes beautiful cards where all you really need to do is add a sentiment and call it done!

This card was made with a Copper Clay card base and Basic Black to mat the Tarnished Foil.

The technique sheet started with Gold Foil and then Black Stazon ink and Copper and Silver Embossing Powder was added.  The embossing folder used was the Exposed Brick 3D.

The sentiment was heat embossed with Silver Embossing Powder on Basic Black Cardstock and then die cut with the largest die from Nested Essentials Dies.  Since the next larger elongated hexagon die created a larger border than I wanted I adhered my sentiment to a piece of Gold Foil and then just trimmed it with my Paper Trimmer to have a small gold border around the Black.

I kept the inside of the card very simple by only adding a strip of gold foil.  This allows me to add a stamped sentiment later, or just write a note to the recipient.   I do this with many of my cards because when I create them, I don't always know how they will be used.
