Christmas Gift Cards Sign

The other day our  pastor's wife asked me if I would make a little 5" x 7" sign to go along side of a box in which people would be contributing gift cards for needy families in our congregation.

Starting out with white cardstock, I cut a piece that was 5 1/2" by 7". The extra half inch at the top was scored and bent down and another 5" x 7" piece was glued to the folded piece on the other side so that the sign would stand upright. Next, a green layer was added and then a gold layer. Gold ribbon was attached to these two layers which had been glued together. The wording was printed from my computer and framed in white, then in green with Spellbinders Labels Eighteen. I glued some red ribbon onto some wider gold mesh ribbon and made a fancy bow and attached it, and finally added some red sparkly foliage that was on sale at the craft store.

Here is the sign:

Romans 10:9-11
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. NLT
