Close up view of mini hymnal.
I saw this tutorial on Valita's blog on making a book-easel card. I just had to try it. My blue flower is the one that I made for Holly's challenge to make a flower not using a flower punch. I used 8 scalloped circle punches to make that flower. The two little red ones were also hand made but I made the using a flower punch so that would be cheating right!! LOL. They have two layers of red with a center made out of a fringed cut quilled strip. This is also for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge, in honor of the 4th of July, our nation's birthday, to use red and blue on our card. I chose these 2 hymns for my mini hymnal because in Fairest Lord Jesus the 5th verse says"... Beautiful Savior! Lord of all the nations! Son of God and Son of Man! Glory and Honor, Praise, Adoration, now and forevermore be Thine." He truly is Lord of all the nations. He blesses those who acknowledge his lordship. I used Faith of our Fathers because of verse 2. It says"...Faith of our fathers, we will strive, to win all nations unto thee; and through the truth that comes from God, we all shall then be truly free."
