Handmade Easter Greeting Card With The Easter MessagePosted by Christine Miller on Mar 9, 2017 in Cards, Tips, Uncategorized | 0 comments
As soon as I saw the Easter Message stamp set, I knew I wanted to use it for Easter cards. I love the messages and the Easter images. The cross image is stamped with the Archival Basic Gray and colored with an Aqua Painter and Perfect Plum and Soft Suede ink refills. The Archival Basic Gray ink is a permanent ink and great for water coloring. You must let the ink dry well before coloring, so it will not run.
As I was creating the card, I realized that the background needed something a bit more and was just too stark white. I have been pulling out my Stampin’ Spritzers more often, and find spritzing is just perfect for adding a subtle color to the background. I started with heavier spritzing in the upper left corner of the 4″ X 5 1/4″ piece is Whisper White cardstock and then used less ink as I moved to the lower right. I like the variation and light background you can create with the spritzing.
You can stamp the inside of the card with the lily and the “Happy Easter” greeting. I am trying to remember to stamp the inside of the card, but it is not a habit yet. It doesn’t take much time, but I just don’t think about doing it very often.
