.... Morning! Here in the UK we have a four day weekend for Easter. Good Friday turned out to be a beautiful day - much warmer than expected with lots of sunshine. However, the forecast is not good for the rest of the weekend! And tomorrow is expected to be very cold!! However, I've an Easter card to share with you. This one is for my mum:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Stamps - Nestie Eggs (now sadly discontinued); Clearly Besotted - Sweet Little Sentiments
Inks: Gina K - Peach Bellini, Sweet Mango, Coral Reef, Apple Mint, Stormy Sky
Dies: Spellbinders - Cross Collection (S4-265)
Accessories: White Card
I'm submitting this card to The Card Concept - CC#152. They have an inspiration photo for the challenge and I've taken the colours, the eggs, and the message 'He is risen'. My card is very much in the clean and simple style.
I've used my Easter egg stamps from Waltzingmouse Stamps for this card. I used the large egg on the front, stamping it first in soft peach, adding some subtle orange and then a deep coral at the bottom of the egg. I use a simple script greeting in grey. I die cut a cross in white card; the die has a lovely pattern and I inked over with a soft green ink. I used dimensional pads to attach the cross. On the inside, I kept things very simple. I stamped the egg outline image in shades of peach to match the front and added the 'He is risen' message in the middle in soft green and grey.
I'm not at all religious, but Mum is and I'm sure she'll appreciate this card. Anyway, that's all from me today. Take care and have a Happy Easter.
Such a gorgeous egg shape - and I love your use of it as a backdrop for the cross. It's such a great look to carry it to the inside. Thank you for playing along with us at The Card Concept.
