Feel His Hands

I wanted to make a simple sympathy card. I looked for a stamp that has God's hands holding a heart but I did not have one. There was one in the Microsoft Word. Go to "Insert" > picture > Clip Art >(look at the bottom - Clip Organizer > Web Collections > Microsoft Office Online > People. If you want to put the picture behind the text, go to "Tools" > customize > put a check mark on the 'picture' > picture box will pop up. See the square box with a dog - click it. You will see a list of multiple choice. Have fun playing around with the Picture tool to make the picture darker or lighter.

Cardstock: Stampin' Up - Barely Banana
Punch: Martha Stewart Doily Lace
Accessories: Gold metal self-adhesive

Ooh La La Bling!

A teenager birthday card with the bling. See the instructions on how to make a diagonal double pocket card. I use cardstocks because it is sturdy and able to hold jewelry. Use the bone folder tool to make the fold crisp. If you are interested, there is the catalog of Lia Sophia jewelry.
