Freshly Made Crosses of Hope


One of my projects this last week was to make religious cards for the craft sale we had.  We always get a request for them at this time of year, especially for communions and confirmations, but they are used for baptism and for sympathy cards, too.  This one is pretty generic, and could be used for a number of occasions.  I used some retired paper that I had in my stash that has such wonderful texture and colors (the background is beige, not yellow).  It is simple, and homespun looking, and I wish my photo did it better justice.  The Crosses of Hope stamp set is so nice because the crosses are each their own simple work of art, and the styles are versitle. 
I used a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches challenge 80, but by the time I finished the card, I had flipped the layout, and made it my own style. 
We had a great craft sale yesterday, and met lots of fun new friends, that we hope to see again, really soon.  The cards sold very well, and I have lots of work to do this month to replenish before the next sale. 
Hope you enjoy your weekend.  I am headed back to the craft room.
