EASTER LILY AND CROSSES

>> Wednesday, March 7, 2012


Hello my friends! Today is DRS Designs Wednesday! Have you joined in the fun and the weekly Challenges with DRS Designs? Each Thursday, Drs Designs offers a challenge and a prize to a participant!  You can see the current challenge HERE.


To create my card today, I started with Heat embossing the Easter Oval with Lily and Crosses with Black Embossing Powder on Craft Card stock. I then colored the images in with Gamsol and Prisma Color Pencils. I cut out the frame using Paper Snips and layered it on Espresso Card stock.


I ran another piece of Craft Card stock through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Embossing folder and layered that with the Espresso Cardstock. I folded the 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" Pink Card stock in half and tied  two strips of Blue stitched Offray ribbon around with a bow to create the panels and adhered the diamond layers to the card stock. Using Dimensionals, I added the Easter Oval with Lily and Crosses layers to finish off the card.


On my second card today, I used the same set called Easter Oval with Lily and Crosses. I stamped, colored and cut out this image. I layered the image with a Spellbinders Oval in Orange Card stock. Using the Top Note Die, I cut out the White and Craft Card stock. I trimmed the border of the White Card stock and adhered it to the Craft Card stock. I ran it through the Big Shot again using the Swiss Dots Embossing Folder. I adhered the additional layers to the Top Note Die shaped card stock. I stamped the Four Corner Butterfly in the background using Crumb Cake Ink. Using ATG Tape, I adhered the White Cardstock with the  Butterfly Background to the Orange Cardstock and attached that to the 11" x 4 1/4" Craft Card stock.


Before adhering the Top Note Die card stock to the card base, I tied a orange grosgrain ribbon around it. To finish the card, I added 3 Dew Drops using Mini Glue Dots to adhere them to the card.


I hope you enjoyed my cards today! Have a wonderful day!

Love both of these, Chris! The textured layer on the first really sets off the image. And that orange! Just the perfect touch!

So pretty Chris! I can't decide which I like better - the pastel or the brighter - I guess I"ll have to love them both!
