1 Thessalonians 5:18 WORDart

  Of course, I had to make some WORDart that was fitting for the season.  I love Thanksgiving.  It is one of my favorite holidays.  I love being reminded of all the things I have to be thankful for.  I try to be thankful every day, but it is nice to have a time to really focus on the little things that I tend to take for granted.  Most of all, I am thankful for my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  How different my life would be if I didn’t know of His love and grace for me, if I hadn’t experienced His mercy and continue to experience it daily.  He is so good, more than my words are able to express.
1 Thessalonians 5:18 card
I made this card using the frame-it wordart below.  I used the simplified version and printed it onto Rustic Cream cardstock.  I trimmed the long side down to 5 1/4, distressed the edges and inked them with Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs distress ink.  I then tied some brown twine around it and tied on a leaf button I had in my stash.  I also very lightly sprayed some Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist on it.  I sprayed it from a distance so it wouldn’t mess up the printed ink too much.  It did splotch it just a bit, but since I was going for the distressed look I didn’t mind.   I adhered it to my kraft card base and Wha-la—super quick and easy card.  I tried so hard to get a picture that captured the shimmer from the glimmer mist, but I just couldn’t do it.  It looks amazing in real life.

I also created one in an 8 x 10 size, printer ready.  Download here.

For those of you looking to conserve printer ink, I made a simplified version.  This is the one I used to make the card pictured above.

Karen, your card is beautiful and so is your framed sentiment. Most of all, such beauty is in your words honoring your Saviour (and mine) Jesus Christ.

Thank you for all the lovely word art verses. What a wonderful way to share God's word.

I am following your blog now. I have many free sentiments on my blog, Tickell Expressions. I would be so happy if you can use any of them.

Blessings,
Teresa
