Joy comes in the morning......

One of my favorite Bible verses is:

Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning.

Psalm 30:5

It is on the inside of this card. A bit of encouragement to go with the morning coffee.

This card has been knocking around in my head for quite a while now, and finally came together.

The *joy* stamp is from Printworks and was clear embossed, then the steam was stamped over it and a bit of chalk was smeared over it, too. Then I ironed the image face down on some paper towel to remove the bulk of the embossing powder (because some of the ink and chalk stuck to the embossing). The vertical strip is patterned paper that I stamped on (timeworn trim). The corner is dp with an Anna Griffin corner punch.

Materials (All SU! unless noted):

  • Stamps: Like it a Latte and Timeworn trim; Joy by Printworks

  • Ink: Fluid Chalk Ink: Warm Brown and Chestnut Roan by Clearsnap; Classic Dye Ink: Creamy Caramel and Close to Cocoa

  • Paper: Various Dp's, Whisper White, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip

  • Accessories: Clear EP, Ribbon (unknown source), Ticket Corner Punch, Deco edge scissors (unknown), AG Corner Punch (All Night Media), Chipboard Heart

Thank you so much for looking!!
