I hosted my first official workshop as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator this week and had five sweet and fun gals come to my home for a play date – Amy, Linda, Dianne, Judy and Colleen. When I was working on the demo cards earlier in the week, I decided that a scripture card would always be one of the sample cards for all my workshops. Whatever talent I may have comes from the master Creator and I want to praise Him in all that I do- and that includes teaching others. I’ve used this verse from Psalms on other cards, but as I was “building” this card it immediately came to mind. The sketch is also a near catty case.
I also used some of the awesome new In Colors. I wasn’t sure that I was going to like them at first, but fell in love with them after this card. I made a little easel to go on the back so that the card is free-standing when not in my Scripture box. I also highlighted the daisies with a white gel pen. When I finished I was worried that it may be too aggressive for virgin stampers- but I knew that these gals were already very creative and that they would enjoy a little challenge at the end of the evening. And they did a terrific job on this card.
This little easel was so easy to make. The card is A2, front only. I cut the cardstock 3.75 X 5 and scored the long end at 1”. I measured 1.25’ from the top of the card and drew a line with a pencil from side to side. Then folded on the score line and attached along the line (centered on the back) with sticky strip. The same formula would work for any size card.
Have a wonderful and blessed week!
