My Sheri Crafts Guest Designer

Happy Saturday and happy spring!! Yay - spring is finally here!! I'm so excited to be a guest designer at My Sheri Crafts today!! The theme for the challenge #13 is Easter Wishes, featuring either a cross, bunnies or eggs.


For my card, I chose to use a cross. The papers are from Heartfelt Creations. The edges were distressed with a Zutter DIA. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. Memory Box Botanical Stems and Chloe Stems were tucked among the blooms. The gorgeous crinkle ribbon is from my sweet friend Karen of Little Scrap Pieces.


A Spellbinders Opulent Oval was used for the base with a La La Land Stitched Elements Oval on top. I hand-cut the cross from heavyweight watercolor paper. It was covered with Wendy Vecchi Black Embossing Paste. Once the paste dried, the cross was covered with Wendy Vecchi Crackle Texture Paste. After the cracks appeared, it was covered with Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Seedless Preserves, Dusty Concord and Shaded Lilac. It was then popped up with foam tape. The banner is from My Craft Spot. The letters for He is Risen were cut from a Die-Versions A Little Mint die set. I added a layer of double-sided tape when I cut the banner and after the letters were added, it was covered with sugar coating for a nice sparkle.


I am entering this in the following challenges:

1) DL.Art - March Linky
2) Scrappin4Fun Challenges - Spring or Easter

Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a great day :)
