Happy Easter Card

A Different Kind Of Easter Greetings - Handmade Using Rubber Stamps And Die-cuts

This Easter Card is made using die-cuts and rubber stamps from various companies.

The Easter greeting is from Hero Arts and the girl with a bouquet of flowers and the butterflies are from the Swedish company called Magnolia Rubberstamps.

And the cross is created by die-cutting and joining two different die-cuts from the Spellbinders' Parisian Motifs set of dies.

The roses are made using Sizzix 3-D flowers.

You could also hand-draw running stitches around the card. I wanted to machine-stitch it but was too lazy to go set up my sewing machine.


Christ Is Risen

Chorus:

Christ is risen! Hallelujah!

Gladness fills the world today;

From the tomb that could not hold Him,

See, the stone is rolled away!
