This was our inspiration collage for the challenge.  I chose to use the cross, flowers and egg to create an accordion card with a twist. I'll show you the twist in just a moment. First, let me tell you about the front. I cut a piece of heavy white card stock 3  1/2 inches wide and 11 inches long and then scored the paper every inch making 4 score lines. I accordion folded at the score lines and lined the card base with paper from the Shabby Rose Collection. I added the lace to the sides by gluing it to the front and back of the accordion before I glued down the designer paper. when the card is open all of the way, the lace measures about 2 1/4 inches. It all looked good but I wanted to have a fancy cut at the top of the card so I used the largest die from the Antique Labels & Borders dies and made the cut so just one side of the die would cut through the paper. Now the back of my card is about 5 1/2 inches high.
I then stamped the egg, and several images of the flowers on white card stock. I colored the flowers and then cut them out into individual pieces. I stamped the cross and verse onto the paper collection and cut those out too. I sponged ink around the edge of the cross and placed it on the egg with dimensional foam tape. I added this to the card with foam tape and placed the pearls on the cross and at the top of the card. At the base of the cross I added three leaves and that completed the back panel. On the panel in front of that, I added nine leaves and then popped the flowers up with foam tape.
For the very front, I cut two of the smallest labels of the Vintage Flourish Pattern dies and cut one end off. I pieced the two labels together and placed the scripture verse on top with foam tape. A bit of pearls and the front was complete.
For the twist, I added a decorative gusseted pocket on the back to hold a note or sentiment. The gusset of this pocket also helps the card stand up. The card would fall over without this pocket because there is so much weight on the back of the card compared to the two much smaller front panels. The other thing I did to help balance this card was to add some weight to the back of the first accordion pleat. I placed a couple of pieces of chip board down and covered it with decorative paper.
I hope you enjoyed this Easter Greeting Card project today!

Our Daily Bread Designs is releasing two new stamp sets for their Anniversary this week! I have used the new God Quotes stamp set to create this elegant greeting card. I took some ultra smooth white card stock and some pearlized white detail embossing powder to add pattern and shine with the corner stamp and the square frame from the Ornate Borders & Flowers stamp set. I needed five corners to create the 'flounce' on the top and bottom of the square frame. I added a white doily die cut and layered everything with dimensional foam tape. Once I had the medallion together, I used an Anna Griffin embossing folder to make the background. I trimmed off the edges and then added the edge back on top to create a frame. I used a mitre cut at the corners and added some pearl bling. A few more well placed pearls finished everything off nicely.

ODBDSLC230 Sketch Time

Today's Shining Light Challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs is a sketch challenge.  I went with the God's Timing stamp set and a card that is reminiscent of an old casement clock!

A girl can dream, can't she?

Aren't these new shabby rose papers the best? They are so pretty!!!!! I didn't want to do much to cover them up because they are just so pretty!  I chose to use the new Blessed Easter Stamp set because it is near and dear to my heart.  The sentiment in this stamp set brought me through some long term health issues!!!! When I first saw the March release, I knew that this stamp set had my name written all over it!  I cut the paper into3/8 inch strips and sponged the edges to weave the basket. I then turned my attention to the eggs. Psst.... let me tell you a little secret!
 I actually cut some of my eggs from the front cover of the paper pad to get these precious little designs on my eggs. I also stamped out some eggs on the paper using the small egg stamp from the Blessed Easter Set! Yes, it was frugal but I couldn't resist those tiny patterns for these little eggs! I used several of the small prints from the paper collection to cut eggs in addition to my frugality of the front cover.
The crocheted border stamp was just the ticket to go with these soft papers. I used Lake Mist ink to stamp onto white paper. I placed the borders back to back with a little gap and added the ribbon. This was a nice look but it needed more. I pulled out my small strips of pearls and added them down the center.
I saved the second half of the sentiment for the inside of the card and cut it out with the ODBD Elegant Ovals Dies adding a bit of sponged ink along the edge! I used the crocheted lace border again with some scraps from the Shabby Rose Paper on top of a solid pink which I die cut using a border die. 
That's about it! By the way, I did use dimensional tape between the basket and the layers of eggs. I like all of the dimension and depth of the eggs stacked up!!! If you have questions, feel free to ask!

Negative and Positive

Hi stampers! While I was looking at challenges last week at Splitcoaststampers, I found this interesting idea! Sooooo.....I gave it a a shot and had a lot of fun! The result was this masculine birthday card. I used the new Happy Birthday Die from Our Daily Bread Designs and highlighted using a white gel pen. I used three balloon die cuts and scored them down the center and folded. I glued them together and did this three times  to give this card some dimension. The great thing about it is that it folds flat for mailing! I purchased an 11 x 14 inch pad of 96#Bristol paper so that I can easily get two 5 x 7 cards out of one sheet. I used a new spellbinder edge die to cut the bottom and added two bows and some champange colored pearl bling. That skinny strip across the top was scrap and I decided not to waste it!
