My name, Karin, was pretty common when I was growing up...just not the spelling. Unless you are of German heritage like I am. So, I have spent my entire life answering the question, "What is your name"?... With, "Karin...with an "i"! Who knew it would come in handy all these years later when I went to name my blog.

Easter Blessings

Hi Everyone,

Since Easter Sunday is this weekend, I thought I would share a few Christian themed cards on the blog today. 

For my first card, I used the lovely Blessed with Gifts Easter Greeting and layered it onto an embossed, dainty looking Swiss dot background.  The bottom portion of my background was made using matching colors and the Woven Plaid background stamp.

The image Easter Lily and Crosses Oval was also colored to match, and then I fussy cut it so that it could be adhered to the card.
Lastly, I added a die cut vellum flower with a gemstone center.

These next two cards were pretty simple to make, but I just loved the sentiment of the featured greeting so much, that I wanted to show it off twice :)

I used two embossing folders for this card and added a ribbon to cover up the seam, along with some glitter glue in the center of the flowers.

And for this last one, I used the same embossing folder, but I left the bottom portion plain.  I got out my scallop punch for that bottom edge, and also added a strip of glitter embellished double sided tape.  After die cutting and matting the same greeting I added an embossed cross (Darice)  that I stenciled with matching ink.  

Here is the link to the Celebrate Easter Celebrate Christ Greeting and the Three Wooden Crosses from the above card.

Hope your day is filled with the blessings of Spring!
