Festive Friday #9

Hi! Well it's time for another Festive Friday and we are focusing on Easter. Now not sure about you, but I dont generally send out easter cards, lazy I know. So when it came to making an easter card, I dont have any easter stamp sets, so this card is me thinking outside of the box.

When I think of Easter, I think of Jesus dying on the cross, rising again and giving us new life. Also even though we have Easter in Autumn here in Oz, I think of spring and all the beauty that comes with it. So thats were my card is coming from, the butterflies are representing the new life and the subtle colours are nice and fresh.

For the ring of butterflies, I punched out a 1 3/4" circle and glued all my butterflies from beautiful wings embosslit to it, so I could pop it up on dimensionals. I cut out two little leaves and cut them into sections, to get a more 'clustered' look. The 'Easter' was cut out with timeless alphabet and I added dots with my white gel pen, to give it more dimension and interest. Not sure if you can see, but around some of the butterflies and leaves I used my certainly celery marker (fine end) to add some dots.

This card took me ages to make! Even though every thing is cut out with my big shot, the layout and colours and detail took me a while. But having said that, I'm really happy with the result :)

So now that I've talked your ear off, why not go to Nicole's blog and check out what the design team have come up with and be inspired to create an Easter card!

Thanks for looking!
