Easter Message

The masking technique places the palm frond behind the cross in both of these cards.  To mask the cross while you put the palm frond behind it, stamp the cross on a scrap of paper and fussy cut the top half of the design.  Roughly cut the bottom half leaving paper for you to hold onto as you stamp the palm. Hold the mask over the cross and stamp the palm frond.  Remove mask.

On both cards, the cross is stamped with Archival Black Ink onto 3 1/2" x 4 3/4" Very Vanilla card stock.  The palm frond is stamped with Pear Pizzazz.  The sentiment is heat embossed using VersaMark and Copper Stampin' Emboss Powder, as seen on page 181 of the Annual catalog (AC).  I lightly colored the cross with Early Espresso Watercolor Pencil (seen on page 24 of the Occasions catalog, or here) before using an almost dry Aqua Painter to blend the color.  Both cards have clear Wink of Stella on the shroud.

The card above has a 3 3/4" x 5" middle layer of Soft Sky card stock. The ribbon is retired Soft Sky seam binding.  The brass colored brads are from a craft store. 

Instead of the Soft Sky, I off set a piece of Old Olive in the upper left corner of the A2 Very Vanilla base.  Old Olive also backs the 1" x 2 7/8" sentiment banner.

The cross stamped onto 3 1/2" x 4 3/4" Very Vanilla card stock.  It is backed with a piece of Basic Black card stock to create an 1/8 inch border to set it off.  The framed design card stock is placed 1/4 inch from the lower right corner of the card base.

Both cards have the Easter Blessing from 2016 Occasion catalog stamped with Mementos Tuxedo Black ink as the inside sentiment.
