He Is Risen! Two Challenges and Triple Embossing?

Hi Stampers!! 

Boy, do the weeks fly by!  Here it is, another week and time for a card for the CQC130 ColourQ Challenge  and the HSSIC111 Easter Theme Challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments!  

I chose to create a quick, CAS card using one of my favorite retired Easter sets, Easter Morn.  A bit of heat embossing, marker coloring, die cutting, dry embossing and you are finished!

To create this card:

Heat emboss the image with Stampin’ Emboss® Gold Embossing Powder (used Versamark® ink on Whisper White- this is the first embossing layer).  Color the image using Stampin’ Write markers in Daffodil Delight, Certainly Celery, Tempting Turquoise and Melon Mambo.  

Emboss a piece of Whisper White with the Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder (I used a piece of Whisper White cardstock that had been previously embossed) and emboss it again the second time with the Framed Tulips Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder  (this is the third embossing layer :-)). 

Frame the image with the Framelits™ Lables Collection and cut two other frames the same size from Melon Mambo (to layer behind the image).

Layer the entire card panel and add the Turquoise Satin Ribbon Bow (from my stash-it is definitely Turquoise IRL- photo appears a bit darker).  This ribbon was one of many that I found at a local outlet store- very pretty and since I love Satin Ribbon, of course, I had to have it:-))

Stamp Sets:  Easter Morn

Ink: Versamark™, Stampin’ Write Markers- Certainly Celery, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise

Paper: Whisper White, Certainly Celery, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise

Accessories:  Big Shot™, Square Lattice and Framed Tulips Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folders, Framelits™ Label Collection Dies, Heat Tool,  Stampin’ Emboss® Gold Embossing PowderTurquoise Satin Ribbon (from my stash)

Thanks again for stopping by- I hope all of you have a wonderful week! Easter is coming- I am so thankful that my Savior Is Risen, He Is Risen indeed!

What a beautiful card. Great color choices too. Love the idea of multiple embossing and will have to try it. Thanks for playing with us this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

This is outstanding! Triple embossed, but I lost count on the layers! A very special tribute to the Resurrection :)

Oh my goodness, I want to put that little bow on my little one for a photo session, gah, it's perfect! :) Love how you re embossed the whisper white, it really makes your beautiful cross pop off the card. Thanks for playing along this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments!
