My other Easter themed cards have all had to do with bunnies and chicks. While those are adorable, and definitely bring to mind spring and Easter, I decided to make a card that commemorates the true reason that we celebrate Easter!
I am so happy when Stampin' Up! includes a religious Easter stamp set. I really love the one they brought out in the Occasions Catalog this year! I used the Easter Message stamp set for this card.
Here is the card that I made using this set.
For the main card, I used Early Espresso and Crumb Cake Card Stocks. I texturized the background layer of Crumb Cake using the Woodgrain Texture Folder. I stamped the cross from the Easter Message stamp set onto another layer of Crumb Cake using Basic Black ink. I then colored the Cloth white using the white pencil from the Watercolor Pencil Set. I stamped the banners in Early Espresso ink using the Banners for You Stamp Set. I then stamped the words from the Easter Message set onto the banners, inking only a portion of the stamp with the Early Espresso Marker. Once the banners were stamped the way I wanted them, I cut them out using the Bunch of Banners Framelits Dies. I popped the banners up using Stampin' Dimensionals.
I hope you all enjoy your Easter Celebrations this year, and that we are all able to keep in mind the true meaning of the season!
