Christian Friendship Card

A Handmade Greeting Card For A Friend with Bible Verse "The joy of the Lord is your strength." - Nehemiah 8:40

This friendship card is just one of those simple Christian greeting cards I usually made for Christians who are sick or just need cheering up. This particular handmade greeting card with an encourage scripture verse was created for a church sister.

I only used two rubber stamps; a flower rubber stamped design and a Christian rubber stamp message - "The joy of the Lord is your strength." Nehemiah 8:40

Nehemiah 8:40 is a great encouragement scripture verse to use in Christian handmade cards. This rubber stamp is from Our Daily Bread Designs.

Making This Friendship Card

Our Daily Bread Designs has so many other encouraging bible verses. I have only a few of their stamps. When I need a verse that I do not have a stamp, it is easy to create your own words on the computer by using Microsoft Word and some decorative font. Click here for free fonts to download.

Here are the card making tools and supplies for making this friendship greeting card with step-by-step directions.

Card Making Instructions:

  1. Trim and fold white cardstock to make a blank card base. 
  2. Ink the gossamer flower rubber stamp with rich cocoa memento ink and stamp on the right front of white card standing horizontally. 
  3. Mount "The joy of the Lord is your strength." Nehemiah 8:40 cling stamp on an acrylic block. 
  4. Ink the scripture message stamp with cocoa memento ink and stamp on the left of white cardstock. 
  5. Pick up colors from the wax pastel with the watercolor brush. 
  6. Make sure you rinse your brush in between colors. 
  7. Color the image. 
  8. Add glitter glue onto the centre of each flower. 

I used bright pink colors on the flowers for this friends card but you can use another color; for example soft buttercup color or light blue if you want it to be a 'with sympathy card'.

Make a batch of them in different color themes so that you have them ready to use whenever the need for one arises.


Friendship isn’t a big thing;

it’s a million little things.
