Bible Verse

this is the day the LORD has made;

Birthday Greeting Cards #2

Here's one that has the same scripture verse but having a more modern design with swirls and stars. Great for young girls or boys.

The print paper is from the The Music Stack by DCWV (Provo). What I did is rubber some orange color ink onto certain part of the swirls to bring out the design and trimming and cutting out the stars and using double-sided foam tape to lift up the elements thus giving the card a 3D effect.

Cardmaking Tip:

Don't have Scripture verse on a rubber stamp? You can easily create the bible verse on a Word document and print out onto white cardstock.
