He Is Risen

Have been making mostly cute Easter Cards so wanted a couple of religious ones for some special people.
I die cut “Crosses 3” from Spellbinder Die. I found that by attaching the thin patterned paper to Fun Foam with “Stick It”, I did not have to run it back through the Big Shot to emboss it. It also cut better. I like the paper I used for the second cross. I don’t know the brand as it is something I have had for some time. I cut the “Happy” die the same as the cross with it adhered to Fun Foam. Used Darlene’s idea with DC thread for the embellishment under the “Happy” It was pretty plain without it.
The first card was pretty much the same except for the shaker and I used a My Favorite Things Die-Namics die for the flowers and used Susan’s Garden by Sizzix method and tools to make the flowers look more realistic. Very simple but very effective.Cut a circle for the base of the flowers and then used some foliage dies to make the wreath.

Welcome to my blog. I started my blog so that I could share all of the things that I am passionate about not only in the creative world but in all areas of my life. I retired over 10 years ago from the field of education. I was a Resource Specialist in a Teacher's Resource Library. My job allowed me to do the things I love every day. I love creating things with many different media. Papercrafting is my favorite. I helped teachers create bulletin boards and instructional materials for their classrooms. Now that I am retired I spend a lot of time creating cards and I love all of the different techniques and media available. I also am very active in wildlife conservation and spend many hours volunteering with the Wildlife Conservation Network.
