Strengthening Home and Family

These little cards are specifically for the women I visit each month from my church. I don't always take them a treat when I visit but I want to change that. It doesn't have to be a sweet treat but I may make some Nestle' tollhouse cookies to go with the card since the theme is about Strengthening Home and Family.  (Get it? house --- home ?)

After using embossing folders to give the cardstock some texture, I inked it with a bit of Antique Linen. And then filled in the windows with some glaze to create the "glass."  I also glazed the heart just for fun.

Inside the card is a little pocket with a tag inside. The sentiments on the outside banner and inside the card are quotes from the message that we will be talking about. The tag can easily be used as a bookmark or as a magnet.  I chose the red, white and blue color scheme because of the 4th of July holiday.

Hope you all have a fantastic day! Thanks for stopping by.
