On a Card Making Roll

I am co-leading a Bible Study class for women on Monday nights. We are doing the study "Crash the Chatterbox" by Steven Furtick. It's about learning to stop the voices in our head that keep us from hearing God. You know those have them "that was stupid", "what were you thinking", "you should have known better", "you're not smart enough", "you're not pretty enough". We have the largest group ever since I've been doing this. There are 22!

In today's world of texting, email and social media sending cards and writing letters is getting to be a "way of the past". I thought it would be nice to send a card to the ladies in the group with either a scripture or encouraging word that they could keep and refer to when ever they needed it.

This card is made from scraps of an older Authentic line. I do not remember where the stamp is from but I really like what it said!

This one is really similar. I just turned the strips the other direction.

This is from the same line of paper. I cut out two butterflies and stacked one on the other to give dimension and put dimensional squares between the wings. I tied floss around the butterflies making a body and antennae. I don't know where this stamp came from either. I also like what it says.

I really liked how this one turned out.

You can't tell it in this photo but I put chipboard behind the middle diamond to give dimension

I cut these oddly shaped flowers and layered them for dimension and interest then popped with dimensional tape.

This paper is also an older collection from Authentic.

Have a good one!
