Z Fold Card Challenge & Spot Light on Sentiments

This is my very first card challenge. It is a Z fold card with a rectangle on the front, the challenge was issued by Beate. I also decided to enter it into the Spotlight on Sentiments challenge, since it seemed to fit it. :) And, I added a challenge of my own to it. I've been trying to challenge myself to "use it up". On this card, I used scraps for the leaf punches and the mini envelope has been hanging around forever, so it qualifies. :) I made it as a get well card for my youth pastor who had back surgery recently. I was very happy with it. The stamp set that I used I had just gotten from my most recent SU party and this was my first card that I made with it.

Showing the front with the envelope as the rectangle and the sentiment "Thinking of you"

Here you can see the inside with another sentiment ~ "I'm praying for you"

Inside the envelope is a little tag/card with the first sentiment that I chose for this card "May you find strength in the love that surrounds you."

recipe (as best s I can remember it) ~~

cardstock ~ unknown light gray color
ink - SU basic black and real red
stamps - SU Sayings and Such, Fall Whimsy, and Warmest Regards, unknown "praying for you" stamp
leaf punches
mini envelope

This was a blast, Thanks Beate and Tanis!!

  2. Hi Sheri, I enjoyed looking at your blog. the card making is neat, something i have wanted to try but just didn't figure i needed any more projects. but then i found your link to the "no more ufo's" idea and maybe there is hope after all.
