This is the project I created for May. On Split Coast we are often asked to send out a card to someone who could use a boost and more often than not - the person is suffering from cancer. It is so hard to know how to comfort that person in a card. I felt this verse would do just that.
This also qualifies for today's Ways to Use It Challenge - to use chipboard on a card/project. I used 2 coasters and my nestabilities to create this pretty frame that I covered with Basic Grey Archaic DP. You use your corner punch on the DP so it fits on the chipboard and sponge the edges to match the DP. The cuttlebug will cut through this THIN coaster (you can't use med or thick as that will not cut). It takes a couple of passes through the machine but it works well.
I found a wonderful tutorial for making this frame here on Amy Rysavy's blog.
I stamped over the computer generated verse with the vine stamp from Basic Grey Figgy Pudding Winterland clear set. I inked the stamp - off stamped it on a piece of paper - then stamped over the sentiment so that the ink was light and didn't obscure the verse. There is a kickstand piece on the back so that it stands up or you could put a magnet on the back to attach it to your fridge or file cabinet. I cut a 2.5 inch square inside the large Scalloped square so I had enough room for the verse.
You can see my other Bible Verse Cards on this post.
Thanks for coming by to see my offering today. Tomorrow night we're going to see a play so I won't be back here until Saturday - hopefully I'll be posting my origami flower place cards - wait till you see how cute they are!
