Creative Card Crew Challenge 5

Today is the Creative Card Crew challenge and Linda has picked the theme for us this week. We're also delighted to be joined by the talented Kim who agreed to be our guest designer.

The DT card that I made for the challenge gave me all sorts of bother and has turned out nothing like the card I set out to make. Linda's theme is Easter, and as I needed to make a religious Easter card for my MIL, I used my DT make to create it.

I stamped and heat embossed the Papermania cross several times with silver embossing powder. I layered it up, and placed the main cross on the front and inside is the full cross with all the swirly bits on the full stamp.
I don't have any religious text stamps as yet, so I finished the inside with a simple Happy Easter.

Stamp: Papermania Cross (PMA 10056). Do Crafts sentiment (PMA 10050)
Swirly double sided card from my stash. Silver, yellow and orange card
Prima Got Flowers with yellow stickles centres
Sizzix Scribbles Swirls die
Heat it up Silver embossing powder
Orange chalk.
Ribbon trim from my stash

Wow what a fantastic card Sharon. I love your stamp but boy this must have taken you ages to trim round. I would have cracked all the embossing and yours is perfect. Love your dies and colour combo. Truly brilliant creation.
