Easter Joy



A soft, springy Easter card to share this Palm Sunday. The beautiful sentiment and Easter Egg garland are part of Verve's stylish Easter Joy set. I stamped in Ranger Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink onto Papertrey's Rustic Cream card stock, die-cut with a Labels 10 Nestabilities die, and then sponged on some additional distress inks (Old Paper, Frayed Burlap, I believe). For the Easter egg garland, I stamped the image a few additional times onto different designer papers from an older, but beloved, K&Co Classic K Charlotte pad, then paper pieced the individual eggs. The background designer papers are also from the Classic K Charlotte pad. I embellished with a Martha Stewart Deco Shells border, some machine stitching, skinny ribbon, Prima roses, and Kaiser pearls. Finished size is 5 1/2" square.

Have a blessed Sunday!
