A CAS Scripture Card For You!

I've been working with commercial watercolors and digitized Bible verses to create different types of cards.  It is a lot of fun but due to my skill level or lack of, it is a bit time-consuming. The verse I used to make this card is from this week's Word Art Wednesday I wanted to make this available to you for your card making.  Here is the card: I printed this on a textured paper  I edged the paper with a copper sharpie marker I also used 1/16th inch foam squares to give it dimension Here is the JPG for you to use  I created my card as a 5x7, you can change the size to what you prefer. I hope you use this to bless others, "Freely God has Given", So that we can pass the blessing. Have a great day  Ginny M

How to Use Scrapbook Pads with Photo Papers and Two Freebies.

Hopefully, you have had a day that has included Worship, Word, rest, and maybe a little creative time!  After a busy morning and afternoon, I decided to work on a challenge card for The Christian Cardmakers Group on Facebook. This weekend's challenge was to make a masculine cards in a color palette of grays, whites, and browns.  I love these colors, so many shades, and a real opportunity to bring in texture.  I thought I would share my card with you and the process.  I also have two freebies for you today! Here is my card:  I actually made two. I love buying the big stacks of paper made (I think) for scrapbooking.  I use my pads for card making only - I don't scrap.
