I love the "All About Holidays" challenge but decided that I had to get away from Christmas cards this month. What could be better than making an Easter card, especially since I was dying to use the gorgeous new Sale-a-Bration stamp, Lovely Lattice.
I love the colours I chose for this card, don't you? My base is the Heavy Whisper White followed by a layer of Calypso Coral and then a layer of Soft Sea Foam. Before adding the Soft Sea Foam, I ran it through my Big Shot in the Subtle embossing folder and then cut it using the lovely stitched Rectangle framelits.
For the actual image from the Lovely Lattice stamp set, I decided to heat emboss it onto a piece of vellum cardstock with the Silver embossing powder. Once that dried and cooled, I carefully fussy-cut it out. Then I used my Calypso Coral, Old Olive, Mango Melody, Daffodil Delight, and Mint Macaron Stampin' Blends to colour the image from the back of the vellum. I love the beautiful colours and especially love the look of the coloured vellum.
For the sentiment I turned to the You're Inspiring stamp set because of its size and the pretty Font. It's stamped with Calypso Coral ink and then cut out with the stitched Oval framelits. The matte is cut out of Calypso Coral with the Oval framelits.
Remember, you can get the gorgeous Lovely Lattice stamp set free with a qualifying purchase from Stampin' Up! until March 31st.
