God's Beauty

I created this thank you card for my son. He bought me a NIV study bible, it was so thoughtful of him to provide it to me.

I saw a similar card on pinterest and had to make my own version with a twist to it.
I started with the traditional A2 card, then I did not use solid cardstock as seen on Pinterest, but I wanted to ink the 4" x 5 1/4" white cardstock to create a scenery back drop.
I then proceeded to cut the top layer (3 3/4 x 5") with a border of 3/4" to create the window (aperture). This is where the fun begins. I cut out the branches using my Sizzix branch with leaves die (yardsale .25!!), I only needed to cut two and they filled the window cutout perfectly.

I then stamped the sentiment (God's Beauty - Stampin' Up) on the bottom of the top layer. Flip the aperture piece over and strategically glue the branches in place.
All is raise on strips of foam for depth. The card may not show it, you can try and click the picture to see the depth.
