Gift of Cards

Needed a "thinking of you - thank you gift" for a friend so I decided to maker her up a set of cards.  I used the same packaging as described in these posts:
I attached a 6 x 6 page protector  to a piece of cardstock - leaving enough to fold over the top - and wa-la a simple, clear packaging for my set of cards.
Here are the individual cards:
Supplies used:
  • All images from The Graphics Fairy
  • Scriptures from  Paper Craft Memories
  • Threading Water Border Punch (Fiskars)
  • Sewing Machine
    • sewed the border strip on with it
  • String of pearls
  • Ribbon
  • Crayola markers
    • tracing around edges
  • Butterfly Punch
  • Brayer with splatter roller (THANK YOU CHRISTA!)
You'll notice I made the right edge of the cards interesting by tracing a shape I had onto it and cutting it out.
I also made some little seals for the envelopes by punching a circle out of white cardstock, stamping a flower and verse on it, and running it through my xyron sticker maker.

They are beautiful! I especially love the line of pearls at the left edge.

I never even tried that splatter brayer. I certainly didn't see the potential in it, but I'm glad you're getting good use out of it! That's so much better than it collecting dust here. :)

The creativity just flows out of you, what a gift the Lord has given you. These are absolutely beautiful, right down to the packaging. I like that you sewed the border on. Karen's WORDart fits perfectly. I just love my xyron sticker machine too. Thanks for sharing these and inspiring your blogging friends. ~ Abby

Love how you sewed the ribbon on the side. A neat way to package them, I want to remember that. I just got Martha Stewart's lattice punch and can't wait to use it. I think this set would work for it. I want a day to play!!!
