Easter Cards



1) Alphabet Challenge Blog D for Dry Embossing.  Dry embossing is how I got started in making cards.

The back paper is actually green. The sun was bright and it was the only time I had to take the photo.

These two cards were made with the Paste Embossing technique.

The two cross cards were made especially for a man at church that ordered 10 Easter Cards for his family. The last one was made with a dual purpose as a card I taught at the card class for Church and for the gentleman at church that was buying cards.

Challenges that all 3 Cards meet:

1) Card Makin Mamas – Easter. So, there you have it!  Now, it’s time for you to share your EASTER creations!  You’ve got 2 weeks to participate in our challenge for a chance to win the awesome prize!

3) Cute Card Thursday Challenge #210 – Easter. This week with Easter coming up next week, we would like to see you Easter inspired cards and projects. The cards/projects do not need to be religious in nature, maybe they can be inspired by the colors.

May God’s love

heartache with

warm and loving memories.

I made this card for a lady at church that needed a sympathy card for a friend. To get inspiration I started looking through my magazines and found my inspiration on Pg 123 of the Stampin Up Catalog (2012). Then I went to my favorite challenges and found two that had the color combo of black, grey, yellow. I thought those colors would make the perfect sympathy card. Here is my finished product. The flower is a stencil from Lasting Impressions and is dry embossed. Then you sand the paper to get that look on the flower. I used an Cuttlebug Embossing Folder on the grey piece and then sanded it since it was Coordination’s Cardstock.
