Faith Is Knowing Card

Faith Is Knowing Card

What Did I Create This Week?

Today, when I walked into the Creative Corner, there was only one thing that I knew for sure:

I wanted to create a really beautiful card.

I wanted to create a card that would speak to my spirit during the creative process, and would ultimately speak to the heart of the person who receives it.

So, I turned on some music and began gathering supplies from the four corners of my studio.

First, came the papers: a collection of beautiful patterned papers from Close To My Heart’s Silhouette collection in soothing floral neutrals.

Next, came the sentiment. I dug through a dozen stamp baskets before selecting C1266, Faith, Hope, Charity – also from Close To My Heart. I love this stamp set – every sentiment is a beautiful encouragement. I chose the following sentiment for my card:

Faith is knowing the sun will shine bright on each new day.

Finally came the adornaments. I chose to embellish the card with a coordinating CTMH ribbon, tied in a love knot for accentuation; two lovely flowers from Petaloo (a different set than shown in the photo), and a few pearl rhinestones from Marcella K.

The card is stamped in CTMH Black Archival Ink and distressed in Colorbox Fluid Chalk Ink in Charcoal.
