Faith

Hello to all! Hope your week is going well!

Today's card is a fairly simple one but with a bold statement. Faith is something we all have in one form or another. So many of us seem to be facing tests and trials these days. I thought this stamp of the church made a bold statement on its own but, combined with the one word "Faith", I thought it really spoke to me. Faith is the one thing that can help us all manage whatever life throws at us. It is a source of strength that can make any trial bearable. One small word but with big meaning!

I started this card with an ivory card base. I then layered patterned paper over that. It's very subtle but I then stamped onto the background with scripture verses. The church was stamped next. I stamped the church again on ivory card stock, embossed it, and cut it out. I then placed the cut out image over the stamped image with dimensionals. The word Faith was also stamped on ivory card stock and embossed. It, too, is adhered with dimentionals. I thought about adding other embellishments but everything seemed to take away from the focal image or lessen the impact.

I thank each of you for stopping by today and I hope in some way you may have been inspired. I love a project with all the bells and whistles and bows and bling. I just felt today's image had the strength to stand on its own. Keep the Faith!

Blessings to you,
Vicki

  17. Remarkable and a great reminder too. :) I grew up in a little country church and this card reminds me of those days. The church I go to today is so large and modern looking. Just not the same country feel.
