Easter Greetings Card for JustRite Friday Challenge

Hello Friends!
Today, I have another card to share with you. I created this card for JustRite Friday Challenge #69: Spring Fling. The challenge is to create a card using a noticeable butterfly and soft spring colors. When I think of Easter, I also think of the beginning of spring, so I decided to make an Easter card.

For this card I wanted to use the new additions to my JustRite rubber stamp collection, I love their rubber stamps. For the cross, frame, flower, and sentiments I used the sets "Easter Blessings""Spring Words", and "Just Keep Calm". I rubber stamped them with Memento Rich Cocoa ink.

 I die cut the frame around the cross and sentiments using "Nested Oval Medallion Labels" by JustRite Custom Dies. The lacey brown background was die cut with "Lace Doily Motifs" by Spellbinders. I colored the cross and white flower on the right side with Copic Markers using soft pastel colors. For the bow, I used silk ribbon from May Arts.

For the pink roses, I used "Bitty Blossoms" by Spellbinders to die cut them. I added some distress ink to the borders before I rolled them into shape. The butterfly was die cut with "Wonderful Wings" and for the leaves I used "Foliage".

The tiny pink flowers were die cut with "Layered Scalloped Posy Die" and the small vine was die cut with "Decorative Chateau Gate Die" by Heartfelt Creations. The patterned paper is the "Nature Garden Collection" by Prima Marketing. 

This card is a Tri-Shutter fold card and it folds flat. You can find a tutorial on how to make this card by clicking on this "Link". Give it a try, it is not hard at all. 

Project Supplies:
