Religious Easter Cards for the Troops

I'm back with two more card styles from the 52 I donated to Humble Hearts for Hope for the troops. These two cards were cut from one of my all-time fav Cricut Cartridges - Sophie. It was offered to members of the Cricut Circle last year. There are so many beautiful cards on this cart that I wanted to jump for joy!
The first card is smaller than A2. The front window is cut out so I created a base from DCWV white dotted cardstock. The stamp is from Michaels crafts for 25 cents!! Inside I used a stamp from Stampabilities. Ink: Espresso your style, Clear & Simple Stamps.
For this second Sophie card, (A2 size) I decided to use the stampabilities card on the front. I hand cut the inside layer from beige cardstock from my stash. The inside was stamped with 2 different stamps. the cross with the swirls was another 25 cents stamp from Michaels crafts. The verse is from Stamp La Jolla.

CRAFTY TIP: paper that is not your style in its original form may look better die cut as a decorative card or embellishment. In this case, the cardstock I used for these cards was donated to me by a good crafty friend. It was 12x12 watercolored type cardstock with one huge flower on it. Although I wouldn't have had a use for it in it's original form, it really makes for a pretty card front and back. The flower and pattern covers the back of the card as well.

Stay tuned for more Easter cards....

I really appreciate all of the kind comments you leave me. It really warms my heart! Thank you.
