Growing In Unity Day 1 – Encouraging Cards

Hello everyone… Happy Monday! I am so excited that this week I am the Growing in Unity Girl and today I have a couple of encouraging cards to share with you all!

Unity Stamps Company is a rubber stamp company with LOTS of fabulous designs. I found out about this company from my crafty friends in 2016. I got some of their stamps and fell in love right away!

Today, on both of these encouraging cards, I use the Praise The Lord stamp set from Graciellie Design. This is one of my favorites from Gracie’s designs.

I stamped and heat embossed the cross with gold embossing powder on a white cardstock. After that, I fussy cut them with micro-tips scissors.

For the sentiments, I stamped them with VersaFine Clair ink pads, Warm Breeze and Charming Pink, that match the background paper colors. Unity Stamp is also have some of the VersaFine ink pads on their store. After stamping the sentiments, I trimmed them into the sentiment label.

For the background, I used one of the digital papers from Gracielie Design, too. She has lots of gorgeous digital paper collection at her digital store. I printed them on 4×6 photo papers with inkjet printer. Then, I trimmed them into background panels and added them on white card bases with E-Z Runner Grand adhesive.

I cut couple black cardstock with Divinity Designs – Ovals Dies for the mat behind the crosses. One of the card, I also use the stitched oval frame that I cut out a white cardstock using Divinity Designs – Double Stitches Oval Dies. I added all the cut outs on the card with the same adhesive runner.

And then I added the sentiments on them with adhesive and added the crosses on the cards with 3D foam tape. I embellished the card with pearl gems.
