Hallelujah, He Is Risen- Card #2 !!
Happy Easter (again)!!
I needed one more card for Easter so I decided to use the Freshly Made Sketches FMS79 Sketch along with the colors from the CQC182 ColourQ Challenge (since I had those colors still out and embossed parts from the previous post).
Again, if you have not had the time, check out both sites for wonderful examples and inspiration!!
Using the Embossing Buddy®, de-static a piece of Whisper White cardstock and stamp the image from Crosses of Hope using Versamark™ ink. Apply Stampin’ Emboss® Early Espresso Embossing Powder and heat with the Heat Tool. Once cooled, color with the Stampin’ Write markers in Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder, Lucky Limeade and Always Artichoke and carefully cut out.
Use the Big Shot™ to emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder (difficult to see in the photo). Cut the Whisper White embossed cardstock with the 2 ½” Circle Punch and layer onto another 2 ½” Circle punched from Early Espresso cardstock.
Adhere the cross with Mini Glue Dots and add the rolled flower with the leaves (flower was created with the 1 ¼” Scallop Circle Punch and the leaves are from the Bird Builder Punch).
Add the Wisteria Wonder and Lucky Limeade DSP layers (previously embossed from the last post and lightly sanded to expose the white core). Layer the ribbon and embossed Vellum per the sketch, add the ribbon bow, sentiment and Pearl to finish off the card.
