Hold on to Hope, Easter card
I love this card! I very, very seldom CASE the SU catalog, but I did here because it was just so pretty. I made a couple changes however. I started with Watercolor paper for my top piece, and used the Yellow Brusho. So, first I stamped the flower set in Versamark and white embossing powder. It's hard to see here I know and for that reason I didn't stamp the 2nd flower set onto the card stock. I stamped it on vellum and embossed in white then cut it out with the die.
I was careful with the Brusho not to get my color too intense. You can see the little splotches of color from it. Then I die cut my cross, and as I fastened it down with glue dots, I also wrapped the vellum flower set around using the glue dots as well. I was careful to leave room to slip in my ribbon, and used a glue dot to hold the ribbon together and to the card at the cross over junction.
You don't need a half doily, just a little portion cut from one edge for each top and bottom. The greeting is a very old stamp I had stuck away as I didn't have a current one I liked for this.
The Hold on to Hope set is a wonderful sympathy set, but as you see, really nice for Easter as well.
The cutout I used for the sentiment is from Petals and More die set.
