Quick and Easy Easter

If you are looking for a last-minute Easter greeting idea, this card is quick and easy! I hope you enjoy it and will leave your comments below. You could use any card stock color for an accent, and even use any die cut shape you like.

I used the stamp set Crosses of Hope. I shadow-stamped by using two different shades of purple to stamp my cross image. I used Wisteria Wonder underneath Concord Crush. Then I added some sparkle to the cross in celebration of *new* life by using the Basic Rhinestones that come in a line, cutting them to the length needed for this cross shape.

You can see how I added dimension to my card by popping up the Framed Tulip border and the cross image that is stamped onto a Framelits Label die cut and then matted with a larger Label size in Concord Crush.

I hope you have a blessed day on Easter!

I love how you shadowed this cross and the rhinestones really make it shine. I wish I could remember how I embossed this label too. I experimented with several shims and forgot to write it down in my excitement. Next time I do it, I will write it down for sure.
