Express Divine Designs With These DIY Faith Cards

Cards can be a kind and blessed way to share your heart with close friends and loved ones. And when DIY cards also feature glorious elements from the Keep the Faith collection, it’s sure to raise the recipient’s spirit even more! Blog contributor Karyn McDermaid-Rolfe was inspired to create simple, yet stunning cards that gracefully highlight the Keep the Faith Variety Mat Pack and Layered Embellishments — and plenty of pure beauty definitely shines through! (Psst, they would also make for elegant Easter cards!) Take a glimpse at these DIY faith cards and give them a go!

Karyn’s Inspiration:

When I first saw the Keep the Faith collection, I immediately thought the mats and embellishments would make beautiful cards. The sentiments on the mats and embellishments are perfect for cards of comfort or sympathy, as well as Easter cards. Since the materials are so beautiful, I kept my cards on the simple side. I know my friends and family will appreciate receiving something so beautiful and thoughtful in their mailboxes.

To create these cards you will need:

Cross Card

Step 1: Cut mat to measure 5-1/4″ x 4″, and adhere to a blank card.

Step 2: Add embellishments as desired.

Faith Over Fear Card

Step 1: Cut mat to measure 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″, and adhere to blank card.

Step 2: Cut second mat to measure 3-3/4″ x 5″ and adhere to card.

Step 3: Add an embellishment.

Hallelujah Card

Step 1: Cut 1-1/2″ from the bottom front flap of a blank card.

Step 2: Cut mat into two pieces that measure 5-1/4″ x 2-1/2″ and 5-1/4″ x 1-1/2″.

Step 3: Adhere pieces to the front of the card as shown.

Step 4: Use the second-largest Custom Cutting System Oval Pattern and the Red Blade on the inside edge to cut an oval from a brown mat. 

Step 5: Adhere an embellishment to the oval piece, and adhere to the card as shown.

  2. I’ll be having the ladies in my Bible study write cards to people stating that they are praying Paul’s prayer in Ephesians 1 for them. Thanks for ideas for some of the card bases.
