For the Alphabet Challenge at Splitcoast (SCS), we are on the letter J this week.  I made a card J=Jesus

I stamped this image on 35# Vellum, embosed it with Queen's Gold EP and colored with Copics on the reverse side of the vellum. As it is symmetrical, I stamped it on the back of the Gold, and fussy cut out the frame in the shape of the stamp. Next, I embossed the gold piece, and then adhered the vellum and white piece underneath it. I cut and embossed a star using a Joy Craft die. Finally, I added a Ballet Blue base (retired SU).   The shimmery gold cardstock is from Paper Temptress.
