Beach Prayers…A Ministry Card #7!

Hello All!

Thank you for peeking in for Today’s Card!

I so appreciate your patronage to my blog!

Thank you for letting me into your mailbox!

Today’s Card is for the

Church’s Card Ministry!

One of my favorite places to pray, is at the beach!

I feel more connected to the Lord there!

I think the sheer vastness of the oceans and therein,

remind me of His greatness!

I was designing this card with just the palm trees in mind,

to match one of the Tropical Print DSP I found in my stash.

When I stamped the palm trees and added the DSP with the mat…

I didn’t like it!

With the palm trees stamped, I had to think of what I

was going to do with the card base…Et Voila’!

A Tropical Paradise!

 

Here is the Card!

I brought the front to the inside!

But, not to overpower the message!

 

HERE IS THE LIST OF ITEMS USED TO MAKE THIS CARD:

CARDSTOCK:

Michael’s- card base (realize, all these card bases were given to me, to use up!)

base, 8.5″ x 5.5″ scored @ 4.25″                inside panel, 3.75″ x 5″

Pacific Point- 2″ x 2″ piece to die cut Chair          inside mat, 4″ x 5.25″

STAMP SETS:

High Tide-  sand, water marks on cardfront, inside birds

Sailing Home- front birds

Timeless Tropical- palm trees

Waterfront- sun

My Favorite Things Stamp Set- greeting and inside sentiments

INKS:

Memento Tuxedo Black- greeting and inside sentiment, all birds

Crumb Cake- front and inside sand

Sahara Sand- front and inside Palm trees

Seaside Spray- front stamped water

inside water- I used an Aqua-Painter filled with alcohol, instead of water

I find it dries faster and doesn’t warp the paper much. like water.

Soft Sea Foam- using alcohol filled Aqua-Painter, picked up Ink from pad lid and brushed over the palm tree fronds, to give a little hint of color, very subtle!

Mango Melody- sun

TOOLS:

Big Shot- die cutting machine

Seasonal Layers Dies- chair

 

Here is the Card, again!
