I was asked to make this card by my Pastor's wife, Sylvia. She wanted it made for her grandson who was turning 15 and loves everything to do with fishing. I just love Sylvia to death, she's such a kind soul and a supreme example of just the kind of Christian woman I would like to be so of course when she asked me to make a few cards I was happy to do so. Making the card was easy, I just found the card I wanted to make on the "Just Because" cards cricut cartridge. I picked some Tim Holtz patterned paper and also used some red Bazzill card stock for the layers and lettering and card base. I stamped the 15 onto a die cut circle and added it to the card front with pop dots. To finish the card off I added some faux stitching with my white gel pen.
Here's a shot of the inside of the card. I stamped the sentiment with an Hot off the Press stamp set called "Birthday Greetings". I stamped it with Versa Fine in Onyx Black and stamped the candle to finish it off. Sense this card is coming from Art and Sylvia and not the church I didn't mat both sides of the inside of the card and leave one side just for a signature. I just stamped the sentiment and left room at the bottom to sign the card.
That's all for today. Hope you enjoyed today's card. I will try to be back in the morning with another card. The next one is another card for Sylvia. It's for her Daughter this time. I have really enjoyed making cards for her, she truly seems to enjoy my cards and always showers me with praise, and who wouldn't love that?! I'm glad that I can create something that brings another great pleasure and something that they are proud to give to someone they love. That's the greatest gift of all.
Till next time, I hope you have a very Blessed day. Much love and hugs, Amy K.
