Happy Easter by Julie Lavalette

Happy Easter weekend to everyone. It's Julie here hosting the blog today and I have made an Easter card with some of our dies from the January release, using them also as a stencil. Let me talk you through my card.

I stamped my image and coloured with Copic pens. I then die cut out my Deutschland Border in heavy cardstock and used as a stencil, shading Milled Lavender on to my image and I distressed the edges with my distress tool. Layering on to coloured cardstock. 

I cut my Doily in half, offsetting on the underside. 

I used 2 of the Border Strips to the edge of my card, adding a little texture paste through a stencil on to my patterned paper.

I placed my flourishes on, paper piecing in a few extra swirls. Don't worry about your joins as your flowers will hide them.

Finally adding my roses which had been shaded with Copic pens.

A closer look at the centre mounted, notice how the stenciling around Tilda compliments the Doily and Border strip.
