Scripture Swap

Wow! It's Thursday again already. I'm feeling better, but it's been crazy trying to catch up from being sick last week! I had a swap to complete for Awna at the Stamp Shack. We are making 4x6 inch flat cards with Bible verses on them. I'm putting mine in an inexpensive 4x6 album to make a nice daily devotional kind of book, along the idea of the ones you can buy in the stores. But this one is extra special because the pages have come to me from friends all around the country. :)

This is a simple project using part of a card kit from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff! She now has 3 fabulous card kits available in her stamp store. I just love them! (I'll list the links at the bottom of this post.)

I started with a 4x6 black panel of cardstock and rounded the corners with my round-it-all. Next, I punched out the file tab using cream cardstock and then punched it with my crop-a-dile. I inked it with gold ink and attached a silver eyelet and gold ribbon to make a clipboard top. Using the Elegant Black and White card kit, I then typed my Bible verse on one of the page pieces and printed it out on cream cardstock. You could easily use a rub on, sticker or hand write a verse on the card as well.

Next, I used versa mark ink and gold embossing powder to stamp/emboss the little heart below the verse (not sure who makes this stamp). I centered and attached the tab to the top of my cream panel (also corner rounded) and then lastly, a prima flower with brad center in the lower right hand corner. Done. Quick and easy!

I actually made 12 of these cards. To make multiples, just crop out the card kit piece you want to use, then paste it onto your new sheet using your photo editing program. I put 4 pieces of this one design on a sheet of cardstock. Next, type and paste your Bible verse onto each card piece, then print out as many as you need.

Here are the links to Lindsay's three card kits, available in her store for just $2 each! Wow! What a deal! And remember, she is still offering her "Spend $5 and get a free stamp" deal through the end of this month, so hurry on over and don't miss out!

Still not sure about using digital? Well, being the kind soul that she is, Lindsay has posted a couple of freebies on her blog. If you want to try a card kit for FREE (before getting totally hooked), you can download a card kit and a coordinating stamp from her blog Thefrugalcrafter's Weblog. Happy Stamping Everyone!
