Hello Crafty Friends
Recently I participated in a Faithdex card swap. These swaps are so fun because I sent in 10 cards and I will get back 10 cards from all across the United States. I’m excited to get the cards and see what everyone else has created! Here is the card I created for the swap.
I think the cards turned out super cute! To make the cards I use a Heidi Swapp memory dex die that I purchased from Amazon. I die cut out 2 cards, one from kraft cardstock for the back and one in printed paper. The paper I chose for the front has the subtle word script across it. I then inked the edges with a sponge and Hazelnut Ink from Fun Stampers Journey and glued the 2 sides together. I used stamps from Sweet n Sassy Stamps for the front. I stamped the front of the card with stamps from 4 different sets. The wood slice is from The Wood Backgrounds stamp set. The peonies are from the Peony Cluster stamp set. The peonies are embossed with Flashy Flamingo embossing powder from Glitters Galore (use to be called Sparkle n Sprinkle). This embossing powder has lots of sparkle because of all the glitter mixed with the powder. The sentiment is from the Genuine Love stamp stet and the heart from the Forever and Always stamp set. Lastly, I added some twine and a sequin to finish the card.
What makes this a Faithdex card instead of a Memory-dex card is the scripture on the back. Since everyone will be receiving their cards in February, I thought a love/ Valentines theme would be nice. So I picked a scripture that shows what true, genuine love is. That’s how God loves us. Human love can’t compare to how He loves us. I am constantly amazed at how He loves us. the God of the whole universe cares about all of us. That is a mind blowing thought!
