Faith greeting card

July 10, 2015

Hello dear friends, It’s Bianca Petroschi.

A card of encouragement offered at the appropriate time can do much for someone who is in a difficult time of their life. Do not hesitate to encourage the loved ones, even with a simple greeting card! Today I created a green card because it symbolizes hope, life and inner peace. I hope you will like it!

Here’s how I made this card:

1. Fold a piece of 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ white cardstock in half to form a standard A2 size card base. Cut a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of pattern paper. Adhere to card front.

2. Die cut pieces on colored cardstock as follows:

  • From Country Flora 1:  1-2 long grass strips – green.
  • From Backyard 1:  3 large pots – white, 4 sets of geranium flower tops – red, 4 sets of small flowers – yellow.
  • From Country Critters 1:  1 bunny – white, 1 bird – white.
  • From Country Fence:  1 fence – white.
