Glorious Gift!

Glorious Gift! That's the name of this set from the Spring Mini Catalog that is perfect for Easter greetings! I love the "handwriting" font in which this verse from the set is written.

Stampin' Up!™ colors used are Certainly Celery, Apricot Appeal, Pink Passion and a touch of Lovely Lilac. Watercolor paper was used for the central image. It was spritzed with water before stamping, stamped, allowed to dry and then overstamped with the same image in the same color. The word stamp was then stamped in Basic Black over all.

The full card base of Apricot Appeal was stamped with Fine Lace background in Apricot Appeal then layered over a single layer of Certainly Celery; that's why in the picture the border looks uneven at the upper right and on the open side. I used the tag punch on the top two layers then added Apricot brads from the Soft Subtles assortment to each corner. The Horizontal Slit Punch was used on each side of the Apricot front to make a "notch" for the ribbon; this also allowed the narrow white organdy ribbon to go through the fold of the card and around the back, coming up the other side. The loop of ribbon in the lower front is not connected to the card. ☺

Have a wonderful day! Easter Celebration is only two and a half weeks away!
