Thinking of Easter

With thoughts of my Etsy Shop and trying to build it up, I had the idea that I needed to get busy on some Easter cards. I'm trying to think ahead. I need St. Patty's Day and I need Easter. And if I'm going to put this work into the shop, I better get the correct items in there, right? So, that is what I have started working on. I've made a few Easter cards. I started out with some Religious Easter cards; the true reason for the season. I'm also going to do some cute bunny cards as well. So, I thought I would share my first Easter creation with all of you today:

For my first card I went with this beautiful cross. I have no idea who's it is. I have to go through my images to figure it out. It is a pretty simple cross and I used my Copic Markers to color in the leaves and flowers on the cross. I fussy cut the cross of course and popped it up one level. I dug out all my scraps and this card is all scraps! I went with purple, black and white. The bottoms were all cut with an edge punch. The black paper behind was embossed with an embossing folder. I added some stitching and some ribbon. The Psalm 97:1 was designed and printed and then I added some small dew drops onto them. I also printed the Happy Easter on the inside and added some dew drops there as well as some of the ribbon.
