Make It Monday: Hello Blessings Card

A friend recently reached out to me about making some cards for her organization's "Blessings from Blessings" outreach with local police and fire departments. I thought the sentiments in the Barn Door stamp set were perfect for this card. 


Open the door on the front of the card to reveal the blessings sentiment. 


I used the scalloped edge dies from the Stitched Be Mine dies to add a little pop of color and texture.


The left side of the door is scored to create the hinge so the door can be opened to reveal the sentiment behind. I also added some flowers in Crushed Curry for more color pop.


What a beautiful sentiment for a new home, family, or friend (even our first responders)!
