Sweet Stamps- He is Risen

As Easter approaches, I wanted to reflect on the religious meaning of the holiday.  I love the new crosses available with the Sweet Stamps March New Release, so used one on my card.
 I stamped just the center portion of the large Cross stamp on White cardstock and on a purple cardstock. I cut out the white one and layered it on the purple one.  The Piccolo accent cross is embossed with Enamel Embossing Powder.
 I used my small quilting ruler and measured in 1/8" and laid down a strip of 1/4" Scor Tape all around the edge of the cardstock.  I rubbed over the cardstock with the antistatic bag, then removed the top film over the tape and covered it with embossing powder.
 As always, the shimmer makes it so hard to get a good picture : )

 I wish for you a Blessed Easter!

Products I used from the SweetStamps store Are listed on my post at the SweetStamps store HERE.

 I would like to join in the Addicted to Stamps and More Holiday challenge. At Crafter's Cafe, there is an Easter challenge, and another appropriate challenge is at Word Art Wednesday.  There is an Easter challenge at Crafty Boots and also at Ohh la la Creations.  And finally, I want to join in the Sparkle and Sprinkle challenge- using Enamel Embossing Powder.

Popping back in to say how glad I am that you shared this with us for the Sparkle N Sprinkle Creative Challenge.

Magnificent, Shelly! Love all the purple and this wonderful "Reason for the season" card. So sorry to have been MIA on my visits but have had major computer problems and just got my new computer up and running. Still learning a totally new operating system (grrrr) and am still missing a couple of major software programs which I need for my photographs and my printer. Haven't had time to comment on everything you've done during my absence but I'll get caught up one of these days (in about 5 years!) :-D
