It's Word Art Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge# 623-624 and 2 Freebies

 Hello everyone; it's Word Art Wednesday once again, and we are now at challenge 623-624. As always, it is anything family-friendly goes!  We have our sweet devotion by Karen Letchworth, a digital scripture gift from Karen Murray, design team inspiration, and a sweet prize from Pretty Little Studio!  Check the website out. They have some awesome crafty stuff, including Digitals!!

This week I made a folded card using an Anna Griffin fold-over die and a beautiful digital of a painting by Victor-Gabrie Gilbert titled 'Flower Seller'.  

This die was a new experience for me, and I could not find any instructions for its use anywhere, so I winged it more or less.                             

Here is the lovely painting

The Process:
I used the die on a piece of scrapbook paper and then thought I would use it for the card base.

I used Microsoft Publisher for my printing and measuring 
I eyeballed and used a grade school ruler, nothing fancy. The rulers in the program make this very easy for a math-challenged person like myself.

The first die cut worked perfectly, I printed and cut out the two images. The first print became the facing.  

The face card was also cut to fit the opening card and inside layer.

I lined everything with black ink, it just has a more polished look.

I used the second image, for the fold-over. It was fun lining everything up. I used the skirt hem and the tree off to the right to give me the correct placement,  I used the second die to make the fold-over section, and after gluing I trimmed the excess

I also used a tiny bit of velcro to keep the card closed

Inside I lined it with parchment paper and used washi in the hinge for more durability

This week's beautiful verse

And the finished card:

Freebies for you:

This was a fun card to make, and it didn't take very long to do; the only thing I don't like is that it is an A2 size card.  I really like an A6 or A7 size. 

I hope you will stop over to Word Art Wednesday and join the fun, you might even win a prize!!
Have a wonderful day.

Lovely card fold, Ginny. It really brings interest to the park scene. Have a blessed Thanksgiving!
You really have made a beautiful card Ginny - love how you have used the image twice so there is continuity on the tag. A stunning result.
Thank you for the freebies also
