Psalm 69:30 Fan Fold Card

I really enjoy fun fold cards, and I was thrilled to see this fan fold card file posted in my Silhouette Card Making and Paper Crafts group by Nicky Viner. The original file is a bit taller than I wanted for my envelopes, so I resized the file to fit an A2 envelope. 

The verse I chose for this set of cards for the shut ins at my church is Psalm 69:30. The full verse reads: I will praise God's name in song and glorify Him with thanksgiving (NIV). Isn't that a fitting verse for this season of Thanksgiving when we should be especially mindful of thanking God for all our many blessings? I love the quote: "Our lives should be full of both thanks and giving." Both should be motivated by all God has done for us in Christ. 

I chose some fall-colored papers for these cards:

Here's what the card looks like when flat: 

I added a panel to the back for a message:

Here's the size difference between the original file and the resized version I made:
