Today I am sharing an Easter card designed with the new Echo Park My Favorite Easter 6x6 Paper Pad along with the He Lives Bundle, dies, ribbon and other supplies all from Stamp Simply.
I love all of the pastels and sweet designs in the Echo Park My Favorite Easter 6x6 Paper Pad- perfect for spring and Easter plus the He Lives Bundle is perfect for Easter as well as all year round!
I also wanted to play along with the Watercooler Wednesday WWC335 “Anything Goes" Celebrating the End Challenge (this is their final challenge) along with the Tic-Tac-Toe #150 Featured Designer Vicky Challenge (middle column down, Designer Paper- Spring Flowers- Ribbon/Twine) and the Double Trouble #104 “Hoodie-Hoo! Hoodie-Hoo !” Challenge (spring theme).
If you have not already had a chance to do so, I hope you visit the Stamp Simply blog to see all of the inspiration from the rest of the SS Design Team as well as the above challenge sites- gorgeous galleries from all!
To create this card:
De-static a piece of white cardstock with an embossing powder tool, stamp the daffodil image from the He Lives Bundle with archival black ink onto white cardstock, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.
Once the embossing has cooled, watercolor the image with water-based markers and die cut with the coordinating die (also die cut another daffodil from plain white cardstock to adhere behind the colored image).
Die cut a piece of white cardstock with a pierced rectangle die, de-static with an embossing powder tool, stamp the sentiment from He Lives with archival black ink and apply clear embossing powder.
Layer the sentiment panel onto a piece of light pink cardstock, trim close to the edge.
Trim a piece of the pastel plaid designer paper from My Favorite Easter to approx. 4 ⅛” x 5 ⅜” and mount onto a 4 ¼” x 5 ½” piece of light pink cardstock.
Adhere the sentiment panel directly to the card front panel.
Add a strip of the fuchsia silk ribbon, wrap the ends behind the panel and mount onto a white card base.
Adhere the daffodil die cut with dimensional foam and add the fuchsia bow.
Finish off the card with a few self-adhesive pearls.
