15 Note Cards For Sunday School Class

Good morning. Today I thought I would share a little project I am currently working on. I am trying to mass produce some cards for our Sunday School class. You see last Sunday two of the ladies in our class; Kathy and Jan volunteered to be do outreach for our class. She will keep in touch with those of the class that  is away do to personal reasons such as illness etc. Well I thought I would gift her with some cards to mail out if she needed them as not everyone has email in our class. This is the first dozen that I started with.
First I prepared the base of the card using just plain white 8 1/2x11 inch card stock cut in half. All corners were rounded and edges inked.  The New Testament cart was used and with just 2 cuts I had a dozen of the Jesus fish. The Cuttlebug was used for background and inking was done to offer contrast.

I then bagged all the pieces up and brought them to work. You see I was to meet a customer 1 hour before opening, and that always worries me when theses appointments are set... you never know if they are going to show up or not. This day I was thankful I brought this as the customer arrived two hours late! My doctor would make me reschedule, I was nice and said thank you!

I glued all my pieces together using Zip Dry glue.

Here is a close up of my embossing and how nice the fish looks on top of it.

This is what the finished card looks like and I made twelve of these for Kathy and Jan to use as note cards.

After I finished that dozen I decided to look around my scrap room for any other cards I could ready for the ladies outreach program as I really wanted to start them out with 15 cards. I didn't have anything cut and nothing else designed so I grabbed my scrap paper and went to work. In a half hour I had my 3 additional cards done... all made from scraps!

Don't you love this flower? It is a die that Emma designed from My Creative Time. It was great as I could line up those little scraps and in no time at all have a little flower cut that had little stitching for trim with just one swipe from my Cuttlebug.

Well I don't know if you have been here yet but you need to go to Dee's Bugaboo Boutique, she has got the cutest digital scripture stamps and they are FREE! I ran a couple out and colored in some of the areas with coordinating colors.... isn't that cute? The neat thing is we are studying Galatians so this was perfect.

Here is another front using the last sheet that I embossed and some white card stock. Ran it through the Cuddlebug for cut flower here too and inked it up added a little blue ribbon and the front was just right.

I then added another colored scripture stamp some coordinating scraps and that card was don.

This is one of those Z cards, again made with scrap paper.  There is a small space to write a little note when you open the card in the center. I love that I can coordinate the stamp with the paper. As you can see I have been busy this week getting everything ready for the ladies before I leave for vacation. I hope you enjoyed my little post today and you too bless someones life with your cards.
Thanks for your sweet sweet words of encouragement. Your comments inspire me to continue sharing with you. Have a blessed week.
