Easter - crosses part 2

I decided to cheat for the remaining cross cards and combining theme #1 with theme #2 by adding lilies to the crosses.

The first card is very simple and uses a 3D sticker (Jolee's Boutique/E.K. Success) of a cross entwined in lilies mounted on a purple colored parchment die-cut (Sizzix). To emphasize the 3D effect I die-cut the parchment twice, cut out the corner on one of the die-cut and with raised adhesive dots added it to the other die-cut. The text was computer generated and printed on a clear label (Avery).

The second card uses a rubber stamp (Inkadinkado) image of a cross with flowers stamped in gray on a light purple piece of paper. The image was colored with pencils and then the remaining flowers from the sticker above were used to cover the flowers that are part of the rubber stamp image. The light purple panel was mounted on a white card and edges with darker purple lines (Mrs. Grossman's Design Lines). The text was computer generated and printed on a clear label (Avery).

The third card started with a pre-made tri-fold scalloped window card (K&Company/E.K. Success). The exterior most scallops were cut off to create a square opening which was edged with wide metallic silver lines (Starform). the inner opening was square and simply edged with thin metallic siler lines (Starform). The inside of the card was lined with shimmering light blue paper (Bazzill Basics). The design is a combination of lilies (Jolee's Boutique/E.K. Success) and a glittered die-cut cross (Jolee's by You/E.K. Success). The text is a metallic silver sticker (Stampendous).


  1. I love the first card on this post! Beautiful!! What is the punch you used for the purple paper? I am a new follower.

  2. It's an old Sizzix die called "Parchment" (38-0979). As far as I know it's discontinued but you might be able to find one on line somewhere. Thank you for being a follower and hopefully my posts will keep you coming back.
