Care Cards


I have spent quite a bit of time over the past few months making these wee cards for our church to use - either when visiting in hospitals or to go with 'care packages' or into the 'birthday basket'.

(You may be seeing a few of these posts over the coming weeks as I am limited in my card making at the moment, thanks to an injury last winter when I slipped - maintenance is scheduled shortly)

I have used some old business cards as the base for these.

These images were  stamped on tissue, which was then screwed up and wrinkled, then glued onto the base. 

Scraps of paper and card, a wee bit of ribbon, and the scripture from Word Art Wednesday.

Another word Art Wednesday scripture, glitter card punched butterflies and a wee scrap of paper with some sponging.

This time the scripture from WAW was die cut and sponged before mounting.

WAW scripture, ribbon and bling and the edges sponged.

More sponging, ribbon and a paper scrap behind a WAW scripture.

I am linking this to:

Thank you for visiting - may your day be blessed
Any comments you may leave are deeply appreciated

Lovely cards Maxine and I am sure the Church appreciates them. I often donate mine to the nuns to sell for fundraising too...or the nursing home.xx{aNNie My Personal Blog}
