Here's my card:




The frame is from a sheet of paper by Bo Bunny
I carefully fussy cut the paper and created my die to fit the frame.



Here is the die I used, I will post the whole set I made down below. 
I created these because I did not want to purchase sets of dies to use in my machine.  They are too expensive, size restrictive and  time-consuming to use and keep track of - yes I am pretty lazy!

Because these are Jpegs, you can change them to any size you might need!



Bring your Jpeg into Publisher or Word:




Right click and copy your verse into your program:




Next bring your verse into your frame by grabbing the image box and dragging it into the "die"
This is so simple! 
To remove the "text" box and keep your frame intact

Right-click the frame  and this box will pop up Click the first box to keep the Digital Die on top - that way your text box will not break through the image. This is the simplest way I can explain this.  there are other ways, but for simplicity's sake, try this.



And there you go!
Print and Cut!

Printed


Cut


Colored


mounted on the back paper


This is so easy, all you need is a pair of sharp scissors!


And for  your card making, my gift to you!












I hope you found this useful and find this helps your card making!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enter the Word Art Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge!

  3. Thank you Ginny for the frames - I will try to use them, but I have a different publishing program... I am sure I should be able to work it out :-) Love how you have framed and mounted the verse on your card.
    Blessings
