His Grace

 

I began by embossing a piece of Petal Promenade DSP with the Country Floral embossing folder. It was an easy way to get a variation of tone on the Petal Pink background. I chose Sahara Sand for the card base, which added a soft contrast.

The cross was made with a die from the Cross of Hope die set, and Wood Textures DSP.  I layered it two times for thickness.

The scripture is from the His Grace stamp set, stamped in Soft Suede ink on Petal Pink cardstock. It fit nicely within a Layering Squares, scallop edged die, which I layered on a plain square of Sahara Sand.

 

The design was inspired by this week’s challenge at Global Design Project.

 

For some added color, I used a Bouquet Bunch die to make some flowers from Calypso Coral cardstock.

 

Before gluing everything together, I tied Braided Linen Trim around the larger embossed piece.

TIP: The Braided Trim does not go entirely around the embossed piece, but is taped on each end, on the backside. The knot was tied separately with a short piece of trim.

 

I had fun using the GDP sketch, and I hope you enjoyed seeing today’s Easter card. Thank you for visiting!
