A Card for Easter


Illuminations is a beautifully ornate set of four large stamps. Each has a lovely expression in the center of the scrollwork: Hope, Thanks, Cherish and Joy. Think of all the occasions for which these could be used, everything from weddings, to Christmas and many others in between! You won't find this set in the Spring-Summer Catalog but it is available. It is currently on the Dormant list, which means it can be ordered even though not in the catalog. I have been eye-ing it for quite some time; I just recently purchased it and am so glad I did! It's very elegant!

The Baroque Border standard wheel in Lavender Lace forms the borders for the card. By embossing the image, I was able to sponge on several colors of ink to highlight it. The edges were distressed using the Cutter Kit and a circle Fire Rhinestone brad accents the torn corner. Lucious Mellow Moss Taffeta ribbon is the finishing touch.

Set: Illuminations, Baroque Border wheel
Cardstock: Lavender Lace, So Saffron, Mellow Moss, Whisper White
Ink: Lavender Lace, So Saffron, Mellow Moss, Whisper White Craft, Lavender Lace cartridge
Accessories: Fire Rhinestone brad, Mellow Moss Taffeta ribbon, Cutter Kit, Standard wheel handle, white embossing powder.

If you wish any more information on this set (price, etc., or to order) please contact me.

Happy Wednesday, everyone. Thanks for dropping by!
