Another Easter Card

A very happy Palm Sunday to you! Easter is just around the corner and I have another card to share  with you that might help give you extra inspiration to join us at Just Add Ink and our "Just add E" themed challenge. You can see my original post related to this challenge here.
This card was supposed to be a little masculine but it ended up with a few flowers none-the-less - and was inspired by JAI's Rochelle Blok's card this week. I love her rustic Cross so wanted to make one of my own and decided to team it with the Sunburst die.

Of course the gold foil does make it a little difficult to get a good photo as it reflects and shines so well....but shine is what we want for an Easter card  :-) I stamped the Petite Petals on corresponding card stock before and punching the flowers. Later versions may well involve a layer of vellum and some background stamping on the white circle but I was looking for a clean and look for this one as it was for a male.

Card stock: Island Indigo, Soft Sky, Gold Foil, So Saffron, Old Olive, Whisper White, Corrugated Kraft
Inks: Island Indigo, so Saffron, Soft Sky
Stamps: Petite Petals, Seasonal Wishes (Retired)
Accessories: Big Shot, Sunburst Thinlit, Banner Framelits, Petite Petals Punch, Bird Punch, Linen Thread, Basic Rhinestones
Non SU: Stitched Circle Dies- SSS

Whilst walking at our local park this week we have noticed that cricket pitches are being replaced by posts of various kinds. I was delighted to see Rugby posts amongst them - in AFL (Australian Rules football ) heartland, it is quite unusual and certainly made this ex pat New Zealander's heart skip a beat. Rugby being our national game :-) Of course the dogs have other uses for them too :-0

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you are enjoying the change of seasons - the overnight temperatures have dropped seemingly instantly this weekend and the mornings and evenings are considerably darker later and earlier respectively. Daylight Savings is likely coming to an end soon.

Happy stamping until next time,



  1. Hi Jan, this is a really pretty Easter card. I did not buy the sunburst die, but it really looks nice for this card! xo Crystal

  2. Gorgeous Easter card, Jan. The sunburst framelit is so versatile & looks amazing. It definitely gives the wow factor in this card! The vellum gives it such an ethereal look. - Katerina
