Ministry Cards #5…!

Hello Everyone!

Thanks for peeking in for Today’s Cards!

Awhile back I made some Magnolia Ministry Cards,

I used a Challenge to aid in a layout for them…

Here is that Card!

These turned out beautiful!

The Cardstock is from Michael’s.

It is called Kraft card stock.

I do like the Kraft, but I do feel limited with it.

I wanted to make a real feminine Card, Voila!

I made 10 of these Magnolia Cards for the Card Ministry at Church!

I had another 10 blank card bases in Kraft

I decided to go masculine on these!

 

Here is the Card!

100_7346

Yes! Nautical!

 

Here is the inside of the Card!

100_7347

Stamp Sets:

Wishing You Well- inside sentiment

Ink:

Night of Navy- greeting, lighthouse, inside sentiment and sailboat

Very Vanilla- inside panel, and quarter cardstock sheet to stamp and die cut lighthouse, anchor, greeting banner

over and under the oval die cuts!

With my Big Shot I die cut the front oval,

With the Layering Ovals Dies,

From each of the colors,

I die-cut the oval/scallop oval frames.

I used the Scallop oval frames on the front.

With the punched out oval from making the frames,

I adhered to the inside of the cards!

For the greeting/sentiment to peek out!

From the leftover pieces from die cutting the oval/scallop oval frames,

with 2 small punches, I punched out many different colored flowers!
