Easter Greetings

Meet today's card, just in time for Easter.
I don't make a lot of Easter cards, but this new Happy Easter stencil from A Colorful Life Designs was calling to me.  I paired it up with another new stencil called Flower Ball to get a unique look and add interest.

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • I began by placing the Happy Easter stencil onto a piece of 4 x 4" white cardstock on my Make Art Station.
  • Using some Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide ink, I rubbed over the entire stencil with my blending brush.
  • Leaving that stencil in place, I layered the Flower Ball stencil over that and rubbed over it with some Uncharted Mariner Distress Oxide ink.  It really transformed the look of the first stencil.
  • I removed both stencils and then using my Hero Arts Infinity circle dies, I die cut the ring that you can see around the sentiment.  
  • I glued the small circle onto a 4 1/4" square card base and then pop dotted the die cut circle back into place matching it up with the smaller circle.

Here is the stencil I used:

A great stencilled look for an Easter card Karen, and the combination of the lilac and blue contrasts beautifully with the white and such pretty flower detail in the centre with the circle of leaves around the edge. x
