Making Cards with Kelli

Welcome to my new weekly feature. You've probably come over from Kellis
or from my other blog
After much thought and consideration I have decided to make some changes.
Because I have realized I have so many interests and enjoy blogging and participating in so many different meme's and carnivals I have decided to post all my homemaking type post here. So I hope that you add My Home Sanctuary to your favorite's and come by often. You'll find all kinds of fun things here. And hopefully I'll be writing more Home Sanctuary posts. I have had a hard time keeping up with Rachel's challenges lately but I am hoping that I have come up with a way to be a bit better organized in my posting. I'll share all that later. Because
I know that you have come by to see my card making post.
Here's what I have been working on.

This is a card for my churches card ministry. It is made with brown cardstock that sort of looks like papersack. I really like the dot paper and the colors in it.
The 'Thinking of you' is stamped on white paper in a rosey red ink. The edge is smeared slightly to add just a little color to the edge of the white.

This is a place card that will be used at a Thanksgiving Dinner. This one was actually made a couple of years ago but I really like it so I saved it to use again.

I started with a piece grayish lavender cardstock. Cut it to the size I wanted and folded it in half and creased it. Then I printed the verse in red on the computer and printed it on cream cardstock. After I printed a bunch I cut them apart and glued to the background. The cross in the upper edge was embossed with gold embossing powder. I plan to make 25 of these for a Thanksgiving Dinner.

Please come by again soon and leave me a comment. I love visitors! And please stop over at My Journey

Till next time. Happy Papercrafting.
