Cross and Lilies

I finally had time to create with my Cross with Script Embossing Folder by Darice, Pristine Lilies pre-cut Stamp Set and Cross and Lilies die cut set from Heartfelt Creations.  The card I made could be used for many different occasions or holidays, with a simple addition of a bible verse inside.

I started this card by embossing a sheet of Color Core card stock with the Cross and Script Embossing folder then sanding with a sanding block to show the inside color of the card core. I then adhered it to the card base and began stamping and forming my flowers.  I stamped the lilies on 90# watercolor paper and then colored with Tim Holtz Distressed Marker in Abandoned Coral. I used my Tim Holtz Water Brush to blend the color on the flower petals then crimped and formed the petals with my Susan's Garden Tool Kit.  While the petals were drying, I cut some free-handed leaves to place in between the flowers on my card front.

After the flowers and leaves were dry, I adhered them to the front of my card in a pleasing design using some Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive. A small bow was added to the flower spray to complete the design.

I hope you have enjoyed visiting with me today. Please visit the Classy Cards 'n Such Online Store to see all of the NEW items available.
