Happy Easter

I wanted to make some Easter cards this week which gave me the perfect excuse to borrow this Heartfelt Creations stamp from a friend. The scrolled image is so beautiful that I wanted to keep the card very simple to not detract from it. The cross was stamped in Versamark and then embossed in gold. I coloured the inside with Almost Amethyst. The flower at the centre is also a Hearfelt Creation's stamp called Posy Patch with a matching Spellbinder's Die set that I borrowed at the same time. The ovals was cut with my Creative Memories oval cutter and matted on Pale Plum. I am so going to miss both these colours when I run out. The background was made using my SU French Script backgound stamp to reinforce the writing on the cross. I then used half pearls just to add some bling to flowers and the cross.

I was going to stamp Happy Easter on the inside but I think I will leave it blank for now. Looking at it, I realized it would also make a wonderful sympathy card for someone who was religious.

Challenges this Card Meets:
Creative Inspirations - Easter (Yes, it's a different challenge blog)
Critter Challenge - Punches or Dies
Papertake Weekly - Truly Dimensional (My Flower)


  1. This is gorgeous! Very elegant, and I agree, it could easily be used for a sympathy card. I too will be sad when I run out of those colours, sigh!

  2. What an intricate design - I love the layered flower in the centre!!
