Cards for church members



This is the card I made for the members of our church that can't make it to services. I used several sets from ODBD: Sing to the Lord (bird and dogwood blossoms), Amazing Grace Hymn, Scripture Collection 2 (on front) and Flourished Christian Symbols (inside). Card base is PTI vanilla, dogwood blossoms stamped in Soft Sky (SU ret.). Hymn is stamped in Soft Sky on vanilla and distressed with Close to Cocoa, matted with a C to C layer, distressed with Chocolate Chip. Bird is stamped in Versamark on vanilla and embossed in gold, watercolored with SU inks Soft Sky, Pink Pirouette, Cameo Coral, Wild Wasabi, Barely Banana and Close to Cocoa, cut out and popped up on foam tape. Scripture is stamped on vanilla in C to C, dogwood blossom stamped around edges with Soft Sky, punched with ticket corner punch (SU) and matted with C to C cardstock, also popped up.

Here is a detail of the bird, sorry for the blurry pic.














Here is a pic of the inside. Everyone from the church will sign these cards on Sun, so they have to be 1/2 sheet size instead of the typical 1/4 sheet size.


Hope you enjoyed seeing these cards as much as I enjoyed making them! Have a great day.
