Of course if there's a party we need invitations. It's fun to come up with an Easter invitation for this party each year. This year I didn't really have an Easter stamp to use so I came up with this little scene.
The card base is Soft Sky and then I cut out the sun with the Sunburst thinlet in So Saffron. I sponged all around the edges with So Saffron and then also sponged the punched circle. The circle is popped up on dimesionals.
To make the cross I used some strips of Crumb Cake and stamped the Hardwood background stamp on them with Tip Top Taupe ink. The edges are sponged and I added the nail holes with my Tip Top Taupe marker.
The butterfly is from Garden in Bloom in the annual catalog. I stamped the outline in Tip Top Taupe and the fill in stamp is Perfect Plum ink stamped off once to give a softer look. It doesn't show up in the photo but the butterfly is colored with the clear Wink of Stella brush. I hand cut it with my trusty paper snips.
The cross and butterfly are both popped up on dimensionals.
Thanks for looking! Did you stamp today?
