Hi friends! I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend and getting a little craft time in! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I’ve stopped in this morning to share another sample I created for the Prickley Pear Stamps new release. This card showcases the beautiful new Easter Cross stamp set along with the Crosses 2 stamp set and the Cross die set which were already in the store. It’s always fun to play with new stamps that compliment previously-released products! I love the embossed vellum scarf on this card!
I cut a standard A2 size side-folding card base from CutcardStock Basis 110# White cardstock along with a layering panel from CutCardStock Basis 80# White cardstock and frame elements from CutCardStock Basis Light Brown cardstock and CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Azalea cardstock using the Papertrey Ink Noted: Scalloped A2 Die Collection. I stamped the cross from the Crosses 2 stamp set in Catherine Pooler Icing on the Cake ink, cut it with the Cross die set and colored the tiny flowers with alcohol markers, then added some shimmer with a Sakura Clear Star Gelly Roll pen. I added the scarf which I stamped on vellum in brown ink, added Hero Arts clear embossing powder and heat set, and then fussy cut. I didn’t need to use Versamark to heat emboss because the ink stays wet a little longer on the vellum. I stamped the sentiment (from the Crosses 2 stamp set) in Catherine Pooler Be Mine ink and added several gemstones from the Trinity Stamps Morganite Muse Embellishment Mix using the Trinity Pick Up Stick.
I cut the inside panels from CutCardStock Basis Light Brown cardstock and CutCardStock Basis 80# White cardstock, and adhered them together. I stamped the sentiment and small flower cluster from the Easter Cross stamp set in Catherine Pooler Icing on the Cake ink and adhered the piece to the inside of the card base.
And one more peek… so loving how this turned out. These are must-have stamps and dies, and the pop of pink on the neutral cardstock looks amazing!
