I’ve got a sweet Easter card to share with you today using the beautiful Easter Wishes Stamps.
I started this card with a soft embossed look to the card front using the Frilly Frames Quatrefoil Dies. This technique takes a little bit of time, but I think the results are worth it. First, I cut an A2 sized piece of ivory cardstock and die-cut a second piece of ivory cardstock twice using the quatrefoil portion of the dies. I placed a die-cut quatrefoil frame over the A2 cardstock piece as a guide and began adhering the inner quatrefoil pieces to the cardstock. I moved the frame as needed until I had completely covered the A2 piece. Where pieces overlapped the edges, I carefully trimmed them along the edges of the A2 piece with scissors. I then adhered the cardstock to an A2 card base.
Next, I worked on a sunrise sky. I die-cut a piece of white cardstock using a Stitched Oval Die and then I die-cut a Stitched Circle Small Die from Eclipse masking tape. I placed the circle towards the bottom of the oval die-cut as a mask for the sun and inked from the bottom working up to the top of the oval with Spiced Marmalade, Fossilized Amber, Scattered Straw, Tattered Rose and Saltwater Taffy Distress inks. I then removed the circle, placed the negative portion of the circle die-cut masking tape over the sky and inked the sun with Squeezed Lemonade Distress ink.
For the bottom grass portion, I die-cut a second piece of white cardstock with the same Stitched Oval Die and inked the bottom half of the oval with Twisted Citron Distress ink. I placed a smaller Stitched Oval Die across the bottom third of the oval and die-cut the piece. I then adhered it to the bottom of the oval sky piece.
Next, I stamped the images from the Easter Wishes Stamps on Neenah Classic Crest 80lb solar white cardstock, colored them with Copics and die-cut them using the coordinating dies.
To finish, I die-cut a flower from the Botanical Backdrop Die from white cardstock, colored it with Copics and added a stamped/die-cut leaf from the Cherry Blossoms Stamps and Dies.
I hope you enjoyed and thanks for stopping by today!
