Easter Alleluia


I could not let this Easter week go by without sharing something special.  And this gorgeous Cross from Flourishes He is Risen set is a powerful symbol of Easter and of hope for me.  I pulled out all my old papers looking for just the right ones...and I found these perfect ones from Kaiser - Sweet Nothings.  The background sheet looks just like sun rays peeking through the clouds from the top right and it was a perfect fit for the Resurrection, and the colours were perfect for this set.  

I stamped on Flourishes Classic Ivory with Memento Tuxedo Black, then colouried up the image with Copic Markers, trimming it out to have a bit of a border.  I added some embossing with the Fireflies folder behind the main image, and a corner punch to pair with this beautiful Spellbinders die (Radiant Rectangles).  I sewed the layers on, and then added some lovely embellishments, some pretty varigated ribbon in blue, some faceted gems, the sentiment stamped with Memento Summer Sky ink on our Flourishes Perfectly Pierced Classic Window Die, and some looped trim.  


Kaiser always has punch outs at the end of their paper packs with scallops or sentiment lables and they worked perfectly on this card inside and out as well.  








Easter Blessings to each of you friends.  I'll be back shortly! :)
