Today I am sharing religious gift set of 6 cards that I have created using my Original MISTI and the Faith Opens the Door stamp set, which is just one of the many religious themed stamp sets and products from Technique Tuesday.
I started my project by using my Original MISTI to stamp several of the many faith-themed sentiments from Faith Opens the Door in Blackout Hybrid ink onto panels of layering weight white cardstock. I chose to use six sentiments to create a versatile six card, blank-inside notecard gift set. The sentiments from this stamp set are versatile enough that they can be used for many occasions, from a thinking of you or get well card, or can be tailored with the interior note to be used for a new baby, a baptism or confirmation or even a wedding shower or anniversary card. This simple, yet classic black and white design gives a bit of understated elegance, and yet are very simple to mass produce for gifts.
I dry embossed the stamped panel using my Big Shot and the Circle Interlock embossing folder by Darice. I then centered a rectangle die over the embossed pattern, and taped my die down with a bit of Therm O Web Purple Tape, and die cut with my Big Shot.
I then die cut all the pieces needed to assemble six cards. I used my tiny little Sizzix Sidekick to cut six of the bibles from Black and Soft Stone cardstock. I also used tiny scraps of silver glitter paper to cut six crosses using just the interior of the bible die from the Amen Crafting Dies. I also cut layering mats from white and black cardstock as well as prepared six side-fold A2 white card bases.
All that was left was to assemble the cards. I layered the white and black layers with the stamped and embossed panel, then assembled the pieces using liquid craft glue to create the bible.
Now that my set of six cards were assembled, I needed some simple packaging. I placed the cards and envelopes into a clear A2 card box, and used a strip of 12x12 bitty dot paper to create a band at the top of the box. I chose to use the Faith die, also from the Amen Crafting Dies set to decorate the band. I used Therm O Web sticky dots to adhere the delicate word die cut to my small rectangle label. I placed the die cut first onto the sheet Sticky Dots. When I removed it from the sheet, it was well coated on the back side with dots of wonderfully sticky adhesive. I only had to transfer it to my small label and it was well adhered!
My gift set is ready to be gifted!
