Rejoice!

One of the other churches in our community is celebrating 100 years as a congregation this year.  One of our church leaders commissioned me to make a card “from all of us to all of them”.

I like the lighthouse theme and how it relates to a church (or what a church is meant to be): a light in the darkness; a guide in a storm.  So, with this theme in mind I set out to create this card:

rejoice

The stamp was designed by Donna Duquette, one of my fellow design team members from Starving Artistamps.

  • Stamp: Donna's Lighthouse from Starving Artistamps;
  • Color Medium: Watercolor;
  • Other Materials: watercolor paper, stickles; Judikins’ Diamond Glaze;

The inside of the card accordion folds out to let MANY people sign and still have room for a greeting.  I will not attach the front till we (our congregation) have all signed it, so fingerprints on the front image won’t be a problem.  Also, the ribbon on the front is left a little long since there will be some handling before the card is sent.  I will re-trim the ribbon before sending.

I have done a few “from the group” cards before, and this method seems to work best.

Thanks for stopping by, today, I hope this post was a blessing to you!

Very pretty Jules, this is a great lighthouse image as well. I agree it does represent the church. I hope you had a wonderful New Year.
