The Lord is my Portion – by Esther Asbury

The Lord is my portion, says my soul; therefore I hope in Him.

Lamentations 3:24

Esther is here today sharing our 2nd card for Slimline Week here at Stamp Simply. She chose to work with beautiful designer paper, a die cut coffee/tea cup and a scripture verse. It’s just lovely! Take a look:

Esther’s card measures 3.5 x 8.25″.

As full of interest as this card is, it’s really an easy make as Esther used paper from the Fruit & Flora paper pad by Graphic 45 for her background and to cut her cup.

I love all the pretty details – like the white gel pen outlining the cup to make it POP!

The cup is from our Coffee or Tea? die set.

The beautifully scripted sentiment is from our HOPE set which is 1 of 4 sets in our NEW release -  Faith, Hope & Love.

And note the lacy border created with the Crochet Die by Tim Holtz.

Super lovely, super easy and a wonderfully uplifting card to send to a friend needing a bit of encouragement.

You are not only sharing HOPE, but a cup of coffee or tea as well!


You can find Esther’s post on her blog here.
