You Make Me Smile



I made a pile of my new stamps that I have not used yet and this is the first one, Gina K's You Make Me Smile.  I plan to work my way through the pile before I touch another stamp.  Well see how
that goes, I do have some darling stamps and sets in the pile.  This card went in the mail to my mom today.  She fell Saturday and has a few broken bones in her left arm. Luckily she had the choice of 5 weeks in a cast or surgery and she choose the cast.  She was already doing laundry one handed today! Like I've said already, she is one amazing lady!  Not sure if this fold has a name or not, it is a normal A2 card, then you score the front of the card in half, (at 2 5/8") and fold it back as shown.  Cut an edging  with  a punch on a 1/2" piece of white card stock and layer patterned papers of your choice, I like to use a 6x6 two sided pad so that I do not have to think to coordinate the papers.  My image is embossed in white and then I sponges inks around it. The inside is a word set from Close to My
Heart and says: Just a little prayer, that God keeps you in his care.  Pattern papers by MME.  Have a good rest of the week and a great w/e!

What an awesome fancy fold card. Great use of patterned papers. We truly blessed that you joined our Challenge last week and hope you'll join us again here at Word Art Wednesday...I want to leave you with God's Word in Psalm 40:4, "Blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, who does not look to the proud, to those who turn aside to false gods."
