Showcasing Sunflowers - Pt 2

Last week I showed you a pair of cards I created with The Cat’s Pajamas set - Sketchy Flowers.  I mentioned that I was able to make 4 cards out of the stamping, so I’m back today to show you a CAS pair made with parts from the first cards.  
When I stamped the first pair, I cut an inset frame out of the stamping using MFT’s Dienamics - Stitched Mini Scallop Rectangle.  By cutting out that inset frame and allowing the under layer to show through, I had two tiny stamped scalloped frames left for another pair of cards.  I decided on a really Clean and Simple design using lots of white.  

I pulled out my Scor Board and my Scor Bug rotary tool to create a diagonal pattern on both cards, one using the bumps inverted, and one using the bumps out.  

Here’s the design showing the bumps out, so it almost looks like raised stitching.  The Bible verse is from Verve Scripture Medley 2

And here is the design that has the bumps inverted.  It almost looks like piercing on the design. 

To accent both of the cards I added one stamped sunflower and leaves and a few brown enamel dots to anchor the design.  

Another pair of encouraging cards that was quick and easy to make.

Oh, Christine, I love all the beautiful CASness of these cards! Those frames with the stamping are so pretty! Very nice with the scored patterns on the card bases. Absolutely lovely!

What beautiful cards with this precious Scripture verse! I love the frames you've created and love the scoring. I still have my little Score-Bugs and must use them. What quick CAS cards that have such a powerful statement. And of course I love your sunflowers! I look forward to seeing the other cards!! Hugs!
