I made a card set using Religious Words dies. Here's one:


Faith



I used the "faith" die from the Religious Words dies and glittered it with white glitter. I layered it over the huge butterfly from the new Graceful Beauties stamps and a left-over Roses die-cut from THIS card. I was going to double-stamp the butterfly, but I kind of liked the more rustic look. The papers are hand-cut...my paper cutter isn't that bad. ;) 

Here's the set of cards:


Religious Words

Each card has a different color scheme. They weren't really meant to match...I just used a bunch of left-over die-cuts and scraps to determine the colors. :) I figured they would work as sympathy or encouragement cards.

See the "God" die-cut? That's from the new Religious Words, too. I used Reflections stamps and Reflections Leaves dies on two of the cards, and the "loves you" from the new Have Faith set.

Here are close-ups of each:
