The Measure of Our Hearts
This card is made for a message from Elder Marvin J. Ashton entitled the Measure of Our Hearts. He talk about how "a measurement is a standard by which we determine the capacity of dimension of a person or object." He goes on to say, "Why the heart? Because the heart is a synonym for one's entire makeup. We often use phrases about the heart to describe a person. Thus, we describe people as being "big-hearted" or "Goodhearted" or having a "heart of gold." Or we speak of people with faint hearts, wise hearts, pure hearts, will hearts, deceitful hearts, conniving hearts, courageous hearts, cold hearts, hearts of stone, or selfish hearts. ...the Lord measures the heart as an indicator of the person's capacity and potential to bless others."
What kind of heart do we want to have, to be remember by, and do our actions demonstrate what we hope to be.
I used a great heart collage die and cut it from red cardstock and then patterned paper and inlaid to patterned paper into the red outline. A panel of white cardstock was cut using an A2 rectangle die and then matted with red cardstock, foam tape was added for dimension. The panel was adhered to a top folding A2 cardbase that had been dry embossed with the Stampin' Up Subtle Embossing Folder, adding a lovely linen look.
The sentiment was created in Microsoft Word, printed and then cut into a sentiment strips and adhered with both liquid glue and foam tape.
