Resurrection

I really had the best time playing with this month's Releases at Flourishes.  And this set in particular....He is Risen.    I think it is an outstanding Easter set.  And yet, so much of it can be used outside of Easter as well.  These lilies are beautifully done by Marcella.  


Today I wanted to show you this windowed-style card I created with the lilies in the set and focussing on one of the Verses.  I layered my dies so that the sentiment would be in the inner window and stacked open dies (negative space of dies cut) over top.  Then I added some Nestabling to really frame out the design.

Coloring on the lilies is with Copics in soft blues, greens and grays, with some touches of yellow accent.   The papers are gorgeous MME Vanity Fair.  And I've added a little crochet ribbon along the bottom to accent.


Join the rest of the team in seeing some more beautiful creations with this month's sets.


Remember today is the last day for the New Release Bundle at 10% off!

This is so pretty Christine. I am loving your bling and ribbon. I just placed an order yesterday and I am looking forward to all the new goodies. Great card as always.

Wonderful work Christine, this is one of my favorite flowers too. It has so may possiblities with the images. Thank for the inspiration of placing the bling "out side the box", I am so literal that by brain does not go in that direction. lol I will file that idea away to use some day.

Beautiful! I really like how you masked and framed the sentiment with the flowers. The beaded jewels are always a fabulous idea.
