Hello! Since Easter is just three weeks away this inspired me to create an Easter card for a challenge at Great Impressions, the theme being "Spring Celebrations."
Regal purple is the traditional Easter color in many religious rites. I chose purple for my base card and layered it with white.
On a separate piece of white card stock I stamped a floral swirl from HFC Petite Floral Swirls and colored it with Copics. The sentiment is from GKD Stately Flowers 8 and was stamped in Memento Espresso Truffle ink. This would be my focal panel.
Next, using two (2) separate dies at the same time I cut out my focal panel. For the frame, I used the largest die from Spellbinders Timeless Rectangles. For the cross I used one of the dies from Spellbinders Crosses Two. However, I did not use the die cut cross but left the area of the cut-out open. Instead, I die cut another cross in purple and popped it onto my base card and then popped on my focal panel, the purple cross showing through the open cut out.
That completed my project. Until next time, have a wonderful and creative day!
