Easter Promise

I can't believe it's March and the Easter Holy season is already underway! Where does the time go? Seems like Christmas and New Years were just last week! Perhaps it all feels so rushed because Easter is early this year. Well, regardless it's time to start showing off my Easter cards (St. Patty's Day too, stay tuned!) before it's too late! And, that's exactly what I have in store for you today!

The 2 stamps I used on this card are by DRS Designs:

I used the Easter Promise Greeting as my focal point. I stamped it in purple ink and used the same ink to shade around it while it was in a Nestie die. I decorated it with a few purple rhinestones and matted it with an oval scallop made from shimmer purple cardstock.

I used a 4" x 4" piece of light purple cardstock for the middle layer and embossed it with the Cuttlebug Textile Texture embossing folder. The bottom was punched with the Treading Water border punch. I decorated it by adding a pearl to each of the holes created by the border punch, and white grosgrain ribbon was tied in a knot just above the border.  I used smooth white cardstock for the background layer and stamped the bottom portion 3 times with the Cross In A Cross stamp.

Finished card size measures 4.25" x 5.5".
