Thank you cards

 Hi Everyone, OH! I was going to catch up and found I had literally tens and tens maybe hundreds, (seems like) to comment on, I'm sorry it's just not possible. Please accept apologies, I hate missing you and your gorgeous work. I promise to do better asap!

I want to thank you all so much for your help with my Kraft cards, I have added a couple of suggestions and if you want to see what I corrected, see here, just scroll to the bottom.

These are another reason I have been so busy, I was asked by the organiser of the Craft Club, to make Thank You cards, each one was required to include a Cross as it's a Church Club. I was given a pack of 10 A6 size cards. This is photo heavy, you have been warned.

I started by making 4 the same, then I decided to make different ones. That's the way my random mind works! 

The first I did is the purple with a die cut cross and flower with an added gem and embossed lines. It was inspired by a lady on FB, Shayne Eddie. I don't know if she has a blog. I did 4 of the cards. I have to say this is my favourite.

Cross - Dovecraft, flower - Tattered Lace, sentiment - magazine freebie 

this was printed and layered onto card, 
with a Tattered Lace die cut flower and Nuvo glaze and a gem

this was printed and layered onto matching card with a gem added and
 embossed flowers dabbed in the centre with Distress Ink

another printed card with added gems and layered onto blue card

another printed card layered onto matching card and gems added, 
with butterfly dies by Tattered Lace

both these dry embossed and swiped with Distress Oxide Inks
a piece of aluminium can burned and Sissix die cut corner. One of these wouldn't cut so I left the pieces in. I didn't add a cross to these, hoping they would be enough on their own.

here they are together. I'm glad to say she loved them.

this is the insert in all of them, I found the wonderful verse on the web 
each insert text is coloured to match the card.

by the way my affiliate post to remind you the fabulous Samantha font is here.

Beautiful selection of cards Faith love them all.I said exactly the same about Dr before covid you could ring at 8am and get an app for 8-30am now you ring at 8 and there are 100 people in front of you-why????? the the care navigator(new word for receptionist!)ask questions and decide whether you can even half a telephone call back although how they can examine you over the phone-ridiculous.My hubby used to get diabetic checks every 6months finally decided he should have one after almost 2yrs and sent him a urine test to be done at home and daughter had to download the app to put his results in!

Bless you Faith, we all have times when we struggle with too much going on and there is never any need to apologise!

These are all just beautiful Faith but I agree ... the first one is my favorite! Love the score line background ... really sets the cross off beautifully! Thanks so much for joining in the fun at our Sisterhood of Crafters challenge! Good Luck and we hope you’ll come back often.

Please stop in for a visit!

Wow Faith, these are all so beautiful! That first one is my favorite too, with the third one being my second favorite, but they are all gorgeous! You came up with wonderful designs and executed them so nicely. I really love that first cross, it is just beautiful, who is that by, oh and the third one too please? Hugs, Brenda

These are all lovely and I can see the inspiration from the lady on FB - I've seen her work too. I'm just catching up as you seem to have been very busy since I last visited!

Faith, these cards are lovely. I can see why the lady at your church was so pleased with them. The crosses are lovely - are they all Dovecraft dies or are some Silhouette files?
