The Cross – by Deb Saaranen

I will never leave you nor forsake you.

Hebrews 13:5

Deb created this card with a white cross as the focal point, intended for a friend going through a rough spot in life. In addition to the beautiful cross, the sentiment inside conveys a precious message from scripture, reassuring us we are never alone in our battles. I am sure it will be well received. Take a look:

I love the vintage feel to this card – it kind of looks ancient, like an old Bible – I love it!

The Stitched Rectangle was cut from vellum paper and placed atop the scripty print paper.

This card is nice and flat for mailing, too.

Our NEW Crosses Steel Die set contains 2 different cross dies.

Deb used the largest die on her card. It has beautiful embossed detailing, so be sure to use a nice tight embossing sandwich in whichever machine you use. Deb cut it from watercolor paper, giving it real substance.

Here’s the inside with scripture taken from our Do Not Fear stamp set.

Do Not Fear and Words of Encouragement are companion stamp sets that are filled with scripture appropriate for all times and kinds of troubling situations we face in life. These sets are wonderful when you need to send a note of encouragement. This stamp duo has proven to be extremely popular and it’s no surprise why.

You can find Deb’s post on her blog here.
