DD98 Cross of Hope- Happy Easter!

Hi Stampers! 

Time for the new DD98 Dynamic Duos “Subtly Yours”  and I decided to turn to My Digital Studio (MDS) along with traditional card making techniques to create my Easter card for this project :-)

I hope you will have the time to visit and check out the rest of the fantastic Design Team projects as well as create your own and share with us!!



To create this project:
Using MDS, open a blank 8.5x11 document and insert the floral cross from Crosses of Hope and enlarge a bit.   Also insert the “Easter” sentiment from Well Scripted, the “Happy” sentiment from Fabulous Phrases (reducing the size of the word Happy and inserting above Easter) and print out onto Whisper White cardstock.
Using Stampin’ Write markers in So Saffron, Wisteria Wonder and Sahara Sand to color the cross image and carefully cut out.  
Punch out the sentiment using the 1 ¾” Circle Punch and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock (also punched with the 1 ¾” Circle Punch).
Use the Big Shot™ with the retired Elegant Bouquet Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of So Saffron cardstock and the retired Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a strip of Wisteria Wonder Designer Series Paper (DSP).   
Mount the Wisteria Wonder strip to a piece of Basic Black cardstock and lightly sand with the Sanding Block to expose the white core.  Adhere the sentiment behind the layer and mount onto the So Saffron embossed background.
Adhere the entire panel to the Basic Black card base and add the cross using Stampin’ Dimensionals®. 
Create the rolled flowers using Whisper White, Wisteria Wonder and So Saffron cardstock and the 1 3/4” and 1 ¼” Scallop Circle Punches (punch out the scallops, hand “scrunch” the cardstock to loosen the fibers in the paper, cut a wavy spiral from the outside toward the center and roll up). 
Add the flowers with the Basic Black leaves (from the Bird Builder Punch) and Pearls to finish off the card.
Stamp Sets: Crosses of Hope, Fabulous Phrases, Well Scripted (MDS version)
Ink: Printer Ink- Black, Stampin’ Write Markers- So Saffron, Wisteria Wonder, Sahara Sand
Paper/Cardstock:  So Saffron, Wisteria Wonder, Basic Black, Whisper White, Wisteria Wonder DSP
Accessories: Big Shot™, retired Elegant Bouquet and Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folders, Punches: 1 ¾” and 1 1/4” Scallop Circle, Bird Builder, 1 ¾” Circle; Pearls

Thanks again for visiting - I hope you have a chance to join in on our “DD98 Subtly Yours” Challenge!
