A Beautiful Card of Encouragement – by Deb Felts

$2.50 Shipping within the US – Current Shipping Special!

Good Thursday morning! Deb has one of those super lovely, extra-special type of cards to share with us today. It is a thinking of you card meant to encourage and lift one up. With the scripture shared, lovely vintage images and delicate silk bow the recipient will surely feel the loving thoughts and warm hug extended. Take a look:

This is one of those cards I could just gaze at endlessly.

Deb came up with this layout based on a desire to use up smaller scraps of paper she had. Where there’s a will, there’s a way. And WOW, what a lovely result!

This is a stunning layout worth repeating!

The left center portion of the card front is vellum.

I love the look of the large circle overlaying the vellum – so pretty!

When fully closed the printed layer from the inside shows through.

Layers of designer paper on the inside of the card front hide the glue on the circle and also give extra white space for writing, and while the designer paper is a busy print, it can be used as “lined” paper to guide a hidden handwritten note if the writing is kept to the right hand side of the page so as not to show through the vellum.

Very well thought out and so very beautiful!

Scripture for Graduation & Beyond by Stamp Simply Clear Stamps

I love a stamp set that does double duty, and this is surely one.

This was designed primarily as a graduation set, but the scripture included is so encouraging and uplifting for so much more than just sending a young adult off into the world – thus the title Scripture for Graduation & Beyond.

This is one of those sets that gets grabbed often!

And before I close for today, I couldn’t resist adding one more card Deb made about a month ago in a similar style and using that same beautiful sheet of paper from the Capri paper pad.

One nice thing about the Prima paper pads – you get 5 sheets of each design. They are all so beautiful, it gives you 5 opportunities to use the same lovely sheet!
