Mini Scripture Cards

Welcome

When I have no specific cards to make, I often sit down and make wee cards for distribution at church for birthdays and other occasions.  I use my scraps and old business cards as a base.


This card was made using some paper from my desk that had picked up inks, and onto that mounted an embossed verse and a tiny scrap of patterned paper to finish.


The base of this was an off cut from a failed card, with the scripture stamped and some pearls added.


Same card scrap, but star brads added to the glitter strip this time.


The background on this is cut from paper that was in my spray box, some washi tape across the base, some pearls, and die cut that didn't 'work' when originally cut, and the scripture stamped and die cut on top of that.


Dark green stamping on green designer paper, washi tape and enamel dots came together on this card.


Two patterned papers, a stamped scripture, stars and some gold cord completed this one.


Gold embossing on die cut and sponged paper, two patterned papers and some rhinestones on this more colourful card.

Thank you for blessing us with your creation at Word Art Wednesday. Leaving you with the Word of God in 1 Peter 1:13 which tells us, "Therefore, with minds that are alert and fully sober, set your hope on the grace to be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed at his coming." Blessings always.
