Easter Card

This is the Easter card I made for the shut-in members of our church. It is 8.5 " by 5.5" to make it big enough for the congregation to sign. Card base is Gina K heavy base weight pure white luxury CS. I used a stencil from SU and sponged Certainly Celery, Tempting Turquoise, and Lavender Lace for the flowers. I used my new Embosslits butterfly die from SU on some retired DP and sanded the raised part. I used a Nestie die (the one that looks like an open book, sorry, can't remember which number it is) as a stencil and sponged inside it, then stamped my ODBD Bible verse, Galatians 2:20, inside the sponged area. On the inside is Happy Easter from retired SU set All Year Cheer 1. Posted by PicasaHope you all enjoyed this card--thanks for looking!

I absolutely LOVE all of the sponging on the stenciling. It's gorgeous! I've always wanted to make a card that size but was too afraid of what I'd do with all of that space. You did a wonderful job!!

That stenciling looks fabulous. I don't think I'd have the patience for it, but the end result is great! I love the cheerful colors. I am sure the shut-ins will really appreciate it!
