Ephesians 2:10 Flip Flop Card

This week's card design for the shut ins at my church is a diagonal flip-flop card I saw on Mary Deatherage's blog here: I modified her measurements slightly and designed a cut file for my Silhouette Cameo so I could use my Cameo to score and cut them rather than cutting them and scoring them all by hand.

I used the SU! Fond of Autumn stamp and die bundle for the image on the front of the cards and took the sentiment ("Reaching out with friendship and caring") from SU! Potted Geraniums. I used word art from Creative Fabrica for the inside paraphrase of Ephesians 2:10 which reads: "For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do" in the NIV translation. The ESV translation reads "workmanship." Masterpiece, handiwork, or workmanship, this verse is so beautiful as it explains that we are crafted beautifully and intentionally by God. Our lives have meaning and purpose. 

I watercolored one of the images and colored the rest of them with Copics and Chameleon markers. I played around with a few different shades, so each card is a bit unique. I embossed the cream layer on the front of the card with a Cuttlebug leaf embossing folder. The card base seemed like the perfect cardstock for fall cards! I love the tiny acorns on one side and the crates of apples on the other! Normally I would have matted the card base, but I didn't want to cover up the pattern on either side.
