Card Ministry

I wanted to share some of the cards I’ve made for a card ministry that sends cards to those who may need a word of encouragement or thanks. Letting people know that someone cares about them is what greeting cards are about, especially handmade ones.  I encourage anyone reading this to think about making at least one card for someone you don’t know, but might appreciate being told they count as a human being.IMG_3882

 

Both cards were created from many scrap pieces left from other projects as well as flowers and leaves cut from food boxes.   I have tried my best to remember all the dies used to produce these pieces.
