Embossed and pierced paper lace over a yellow base, with center lace netting that can be lifted to reveal text, entitled "Faith" and cameo image of a decorative column. At top of cameo section is an embossed image of a church with blue sky background. The four lines of text visible below the center lace netting read as: The truest joys that earth can give, /In Hymen's hands you'll find; /What folly then to single live, /We're not for that designed.
