Adding embellishments to a patterned paper can completely change the look of your card. It makes it more than just a sticker on a piece of paper, turning it into something three-dimensional.
You'll also need a coordinating pattern, as you're going to make a small side panel out of it.
Add a lovely sentiment to connect the two panels and you're ready to brighten someone's day.
The small side panel is cut from paper of the same stack, so I didn't even have to think hard about coordinating it. I like that kind of crafting!
I printed out my verse from 2 Timothy and matted it on two shades of card stock.
