Happy Easter!

Hello Everyone! Hope you are having a Blessed Easter weekend with Family and Friends!
Just popping in to share an Easter card I made using the colors from the March 2018 Inspiration Challenge at Altenew.

I made a custom sentiment from Calligraphy Alpha and Thick and Thin Alpha sets. Stamped them with Peach Perfect and Coral Berry Crisp inks.
  • On a separate piece of 110# white cardstock I used outline die from Build-A-Flower: Chrysanthemum to cut an opening for the Happy Easter sentiment to peek through.
  • And decided a kiss of Buttercream ink needed to be sponged lightly around the words. 
  • A quick inking of the Layered Kaleidoscope Stencil B with Buttercream was given for a bit of visual interest. the senciling is so faint, it was difficult to photograph. But it IS delightful:))

  • Then I inked each layer of the lovely Build-A-Flower: Chrysanthemum with: Pink Pearl for the first 2 layers, then Coral Bliss and Coral Berry for the final detailed layer. The leaves are inked with Ocean Waves, Aaqualicious, and Teal Cave.
  • Cut everything out with the dies in the set.
  • I LOVE how the second layer of the Chrysanthemum die allows for some of the petals to be popped up:))
  • After placing the bloom and leaves on the stenciled panel I embellished with Enamel dots and sequins and Gold Glitter tape,

This completes my fairly simple card which is for my Mom and Dad...Mom is in Hospital for 5 days with a new treatment for her Lymphoma. They were sad to have missed all the Easter festivities this year. However, we believe every new morning brings JOY  in having a risen Savior! Our hope for eternal joy and perfect health with Christ in Heaven makes these earthly days of struggles more bearable.
