Day Hemmed in Prayer Gatefold Card

I recently led a free card-making class for a local Moms of Preschoolers group and had a fun time creating all the elements for 15 people to make 5 cards. This "hemmed in prayer" gatefold card was one of them. The stamp was a gift from Holley Barnhart of Holley's Blog ( She does blog candy every February, and I won several great stamps, dies, and stencils. Thanks, Holley!

To make the card, I used a Pinkfresh Studio coverplate die called "Stitches." I die cut it out of a light yellow card stock that matched the design paper I used for the card base. I was able to cut it along the center to add to the 2 sides of my gatefold card. Then I stamped the "A day hemmed in prayer is less likely to unravel" sentiment from Our Daily Bread Designs and die cut it using a Gina Marie stitched rectangle die. I added a button with some twine tied to it and a die cut needle and thread (sorry I don't know what company made those--they have been in my stash for years!). For the inside of the card, I did some more stamping using a retired Close to My Heart stamp set (the needle and cross stitch heart) and what I think is a Just Rite stamp (Jeremiah 33:3). That's also been in my stash for quite some time, so I'm not sure. I've bought a lot of Christian stamps over the years!
