[Video]Inspirational Art Philosophy Card

As soon as I saw this swirly "Be Still and Know that I am God" stamp, I knew I had to have it.  Just the perfect sentiment to lift someone up who is in a tough spot!

I used the Close to My Heart Art Philosophy cartridge and here are the cuts:

Below, I added in a quick sentiment that says "Peace Be with You" on the inside.

  1. I do think encouragement cards are wonderful, I love to send them, yours is great!

  2. I've had my eye on this cartridge for a long time . . . would love to win it! I learn so much from your blog . . . keep up the good work!

  3. I like encouragement cards to give a "lift" to someone. I mailed a handwritten 2 page letter to a friend with a birthday card & a Mother's Day card and she liked that I handwrote a letter.

  17. Encouragement cards are what I send most often. Would love to see more options.

  18. Hey I just got a cricut explore and I have all the CTMH cartridges but I'm having time cutting from them with the new software. It says that it is not available to purchase but I have the cartridges linked already and it recognizes that but just won't cut. Any thoughts
    Thanks for all your great card ideas and videos on the Cricut Explore.

  19. I have never thought about making encouragement cards but that is a great idea. Thanks once again for the opportunity to be creative. I just love your website.

  20. Oh, Joy! I love your videos! I know you worry about "boring" us but you are not! You inspire us by being real. I, too, spend time making cards and layouts to get it just right and when I think I have it so, guess what? The next time I look at it I spot what I think is a glaring "mistake." Arghhhh! So I feel your angst. :-) I am so appreciative of all the time and effort you spend to share your creativity with us. Thanks and many hugs to you!
