Stitched Quilt Vintage Card

This card is made in honor of the Cox family who are experiencing some tough times right now due to medical issues and the expenses associated with them. I am hoping this card will remind them of both their love for each other and the love the Lord has for them. I have no doubt the Lord will meet all their needs as they look to Him for His perfect provision and have been so encouraged to see the outpouring of support for them from the card-making community during the recent blog hop put on for them.
This card features the Gina Marie Designs "Quilt Stitched 4x4 Die #1" and one of Gina Marie Designs scripture stamps. I cut the card base to make a 6x6 square and distressed the edges for a more vintage look. Then I die cut the quilt pieces using the reverse side of the same paper and popped up the inner pieces using foam tape. I stamped the verse from 1 Corninthians in black ink to match some of the black in the cardstock. You can purchase the die (the price is only $10) and stamp at http://wholesalecraftingsupplies.com, along with lots of other stamps and dies (2 other quilt dies, as well!).
This Valentine's Day, let's be sure to remember to thank God for the gift of His love.
Here's a close up of the quilt panels and the verse:
