However, Easter is about a week or so away and I find myself if need of one more Easter card to send to family members.
I used the sketch challenge with Technostamper here to make the card. Again, I'm using a SAB stamp set as well.
First I took an image from "Everything Eleanor", inked it with Gumball Green, stamped off twice and then stamped on Whisper White card stock. The sentiment, from "Easter Blessings" was stamped onto this image using Black Stazon. I tried to center it as much as possible, but still don't have total control with the stamp-a-ma-jig yet.
This image panel was matted with first Gumball green cardstock, and then Marina Mist.
At this point, 4 flowers from the "Bloomin' Marvelous" stamp set were stamped on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock - 2 in Summer Starfruit, 2 in Primrose Petals, and 2 in Marina Mist. These I cut out - a most tedious process, but the result is worth it. They were adhered to alternate corners of the image panel using tombo glue, and rhinestones placed in their centers.
I then prepared the rest of the card. The base is Marina Mist, layered with Whisper White, and then a blue/green floral DSP from the Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper Stack. It looked the most Easterly (is that a word?), and coordinated with the cardstock and flowers the best.
A piece of Summer Starfruit stitched ribbon was attached at the left hand side of the card, and then the image panel was adhered using dimensionals. Two designer buttons were placed on the left lower part of the image panel, and a bow to the top.
