Quick and Easy Religious Cards by Lynn Dionne

 Happy Wednesday Ai Fans!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today we will be using the brand-new die Ai Crosses Dies Set (5909) which includes 7 Cross Dies that are simply elegant and beautiful!

We are going to create two quick and easy religious cards! These cards can be used for baptisms, communions, sympathy cards, friendship or anything else you might like.

We can begin by embossing a beautiful background from some white heavyweight cardstock. The card base will also be white, and this will give the card a simple yet elegant look!

Let's also create a standard A2 card base and cut off a small section of the front of the card. This way we can add a pretty pink metallic paper on the inside of the card that will show from the front of the card.

Now we can die cut this beautiful cross from that same metallic cardstock and two more from some white cardstock. Let's stack these together for a nice thick cross with lots of dimension!

We can cut the embossed panel down to size (keeping the leftover piece for the second card). Before we attach this to the card let's add some matching pink velvet ribbon and tie a knot. I will show you a little trick for tying the ribbon easily and perfectly on your card.

Now we will add a strip of metallic cardstock to the inside of the card and for some added interest we will flip the card over and add some score lines from the back to the front. This adds an elegant detail to the card!

Finally, we can add a white heart embellishment to the center of the cross. You could also add some flowers, charms, or a sentiment here as well!

The second (bonus card) was created using the same products and the left-over piece from the embossed panel. I will give you all of the details and dimensions for both cards in today's video!

Thank you so much for joining me today!  Have a fun and crafty day!!!
