Good Friday morning, y’all! It’s day 498 of Social Distancing.
Not really – just sort of feels like it is, doesn’t it?? It’s really starting to get real – another 30 days?? AND – Georgia just followed other states by issuing a Stay Home Order starting today. Good idea – it’s NECESSARY. But…I feel pretty confident that NO ONE will believe me when I whine that having my house cleaned (and not by me!)….IS essential!
And now you know. I AM a first-world-sissy-baby.
C’mon, Mare – you’ve got a house, and food, and electricity. The dog and cat and horses have food. Wayne can fix or cobble together anything we need. ZEWS 1 is on the job. We’re healthy – and getting to the two-weeks-since-we’ve-been-anywhere-so-surely-that-means-we’re-completely-healthy point. So…waaaaa.
Sorry. I’m over it now.
Since along with a house and power comes internet (Thank goodness!) I was able to go live yesterday on my YouTube channel. If you were able to join me – I appreciate you spending some of your day with me! If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!
The card we made is a pretty – and pretty easy!! – Easter card, using the Easter Promise stamp set from the Jan – Jun Mini Catalog, a sweet Ornate Layers Die cut and some Pressed Petals Specialty DSP (2019-2020 Annual Catalog). Take a look-see:
The layout for this one came from the Mojo Monday challenge…I THINK you can see which sketch I used! 😉
And the Easter theme fits right into the Inspire. Create. Challenge!
I started with some of the pretty sheet music paper from the Pressed Petals Specialty DSP and matted it on So Saffron for the card front.
Next, with the long, narrow die from the new Ornate Layers Die Set, I cut a Purple Posy rectangle. I ran it thru the die cutting machine in the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.
Then, I matted a strip of wood-grain Pressed Petals Specialty DSP on So Saffron and adhered it over top with Liquid Glue.
I cut a Very Vanilla rectangle with the next-to-largest Stitched So Sweetly die and stamped the big Easter Promise sentiment in Mossy Meadow.
Next to it – also in Mossy Meadow – I added the floral spray.
I colored the flowers with my Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Combo and the stems with my Light Mossy Meadow Blend.
Then I popped the panel onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I used a Glue Dot to adhere a Linen Thread double-loop bow, which I topped with a purple Frosted Flower Embellishment and a Champagne Rhinestone. And that was it for the card front.
Speaking of Glue Dots, though…
Other side of the room by my photo box. No. Clue. Why. 🤷♀️
For the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Easter Promise in Mossy Meadow on a Very Vanilla panel. I added the flowers, in Mossy Meadow, again in the corner, coloring them as I’d done on the front.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a So Saffron mat and into my Purple Posy card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more Easter Promises flowers on the front…
…and more Pressed Petals Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! Spring and Easter all rolled up in one! Don’t let the Easter Promise stamp set – with it’s elegant flowers and simple sentiments – pass you by! Easter is coming soon – and cards with messages of the hope of Easter are going to be especially welcome this year, I’m thinking!
I hope you like!
