It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made an Easter Card using He Lives! - R057 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and He Is Risen! - H137 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. I really love the serenity of this image. Here's hoping that we will get to spend Easter with our loved ones this year.
To make my card this week, I used AC Cardstock for my base folded at 6" x 6". For the main background, I used this beautiful paper from Heartfelt Creations - Flowering Dogwood Collections cut to the same size as the base and attached it using double-sided tape. Tim Holtz Distress Inks - Peeled Paint was used to ink around all of the edges. My Creative Time - Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies was used to cut all of the ovals and My Creative Time - Rectangle Frame Die Layers was used to cut the small rectangle. Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Fossilized Amber was used to ink around the large scalloped oval and Tim Holtz Distress Inks - Dusty Concord was used to ink around the larger oval and small rectangle. I used 2 types of purple ribbon and ran both pieces through my Xyron Create a Sticker to make it easier to attach them to each other and then onto the card. I used some double-sided tape and glue to adhere the larger oval to the base. 3M VHB - 2 sided tape was used to add the larger oval.
I stamped the image and sentiment using Memento - Tuxedo Black and my MISTI onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. I coloured in the image using Copic markers. For the sentiment, I found the white was too bright, so I coloured over it with a soft purple Copic marker - V01. I added 3M VHB - 2 sided tape to the back of the coloured image and placed it on top of the larger oval. For the sentiment, I doubled up on the 3M VHB - 2 sided tape before attaching it to the card.
