A Card for Lois





My sweet friend, Wilna Furstenberg is doing a huge RAK and card drive for her friend, Lois, here.
WHY?
From Wilna's blog...

I have a friend, Lois. She is 40 years old and have cancer. She is in pain and needs positive, uplifting people to remind her continually to live and that life is worth living. She has an amazing husband and four beautiful kids. The doctors are not giving her long to live, but I believe that God is the author of life. And I know you believe that too.

My heart is burdened for Lois. Can you imagine being given a death sentence by your doctors? But, there's hope in our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ! He is our great physician. By His stripes we are healed, and I believe in the miraculous power of His healing. Please pray for Lois and lift her up by sending a card. Wilna is trying to get 100 cards pledged.

Here is the card I created for Lois. Please join me in this plea...











I am totally hooked on Papery Trey Inks products. Their stamps, cardstock, patterned paper, inks, customer service are of the highest quality. I love this set. It's called Everyday Blessings and you can find it here.
I used a Marvy scalloped oval and plain oval punch for the outside sentiment. I stamped the cross as well as the sentiment and sprinkled it with black embossing powder to really enhance the black and make it pop, then I heat set it. I then cut out the cross by hand and placed foam on the back to lift it off the card. I used double stick foam for the scalloped sentiment as well. I enhanced the scallops with Black Diamond stickles.
The inside sentiment is stamped on a white cardstock and punched in the corner with a Stampin' Up notched corner punch. I love how the punch mimics the pointy edges of the cross.
Please make a card for Lois today.
