Stampin’ Up Hold On To Hope Easter Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is your week going?  Was everyone able to hop around our Blog Hop yesterday?  There were some pretty amazing projects there.

For today’s card I made one last Easter card.  I really need to get these in the mail.  I used the Stampin’ Up Hold On To Hope Stamp Set and the Cross Of Hope Framelit Dies.  Take a look.

I started by adhereing a panel of the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper to a Fresh Fig mat using Snail.  –  Just a little side note.  The annual catalog will be coming to an end the beginning of June.  The 2017-2019 In-Colors will be leaving.  These include Berry Burst, Fresh Fig, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink and Tranquil Tide.  If you are wanting any of these colors in the cardstock, inks, Stampin’ write markers or ink refills get them fast.  These are the first items to usually sell out.

I adhered the matted DSP to a Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Using my Big Shot, I cut a solid cross from the Cross Of Hope Framelits Dies out of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.  I then cut the detailed cross from the same die set out of the Champagne Foil Sheet.  I adhered the detailed cross to the solid cross using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the cross to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Hold On To Hope stamp set in Fresh Fig Ink.  I cut the banner out  using my Cross of Hope Framelit Dies.  I adhered the banner over the cross using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the solid cross from the Hold On To Hope stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink stamping off once in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the foliage from the same stamp set around the corners in Tranquil Tide Ink.  I stamped the butterfly by the cross in Fresh Fig Ink stamping off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the  Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set in Fresh Fig Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Fresh Fig mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the foliage from the Hold On To Hope stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of Wood Textures DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!
