MY EASTER CARD




I hope you all had a wonderfully blessed Easter!!

This is the Easter card I made for family and close friends and I want to share it with you too.
When I saw this set used by several great stampers from the Our Daily Bread gallery, I knew this was the one I needed to have for my Easter card. My excuse also was that I never got around to making Christmas cards, so I was going to make Easter cards as these 2 celebrations are totally linked to each other: the birth, death and resurrection of our Saviour Christ Jesus. Can't celebrate one without the other.

I really had fun coming up with this card. So here is how I made it:
The cardstock color is SU So Saffron. I textured it with the SU textures diamond shape in the cuttlebug. It took me awhile to come up with the right sandwich to get a good texture. So here it is: A plate, texture plate, cardstock, 2 pieces of mating and the B plate. I know it is different than what I have seen others use, but this is what worked best for me.
The verse is gold embossed on Very Vanilla SU and a Nestabilities Label 2.
I stamped the flower with Stasz-On Timber Brown on Shimmery White SU and used the Watercolor pencils to color it. For an extra embellishment I added 3 gold brads.

I have a terrible head cold, so I am not planning on doing anything big today, except for coming up with an idea for supper and stamping!!

Thank you for coming by and leaving your comments!!
Hope to see you around soon again.

Hi Rosella!!
Oh, I see Ann has left a comment as well:-) Yellow is a beatiful color, but there aren't not so many paper that are just yellow, I think..

I'm from Sweden so I speak swedish, and I often forget to translate my blogging...
