Happy Easter!

Hello, everyone!

It's Nancy from The Nickel Nook here with you today!
I'm so excited to be sharing my first project as a DT member of Dies R Us!

Today I'm sharing an Easter Card.
Easter will be so strange this year.
We won't have the opportunity to attend church, 
or celebrate the occasion with our loved ones.
Perhaps this Easter we should all send cards to those that we can't be with.
They might arrive late but I don't think that ever matters.

Here's my card:


Here's what I used:


The dies I'm using are both from Tutti Designs:

I started with an A2 tent fold card base in white cardstock.
Then I chose some lovely soft green papers.
This is a double-sided paper: damask on one side, polka dot on the other side.


I began by die-cutting an oval from the center of the front of the card.
I die-cut the frame die from the green damask print paper.
I cut a piece of the green polka dot paper to measure 4" x 5 1/4".
I adhered this paper to the back side of the card front. 


I stamped the "Happy Easter" in place through the oval.
I then adhered the frame in place on the card front.


I then die-cut a second Easter Frame.
From this piece, I fussy cut some of the little butterflies and flowers.
I curled/folded these up, and adhered them in place onto the first Easter Frame.
It adds such nice dimension to the card.
to finish it off, I added white crystal drops to the frame.


Inside the card, I added a rectangle of the polka dot paper.
then I stamped a wonderful Scripture verse from the same stamp set,
onto the oval that I cut out of the card front,
before adhering it onto the rectangle strip.
Finally, I added a double looped bow to the top of the card.
Isn't that a fabulous verse for this time?
It's a wonderful reminder that God is still on His throne!


I hope you enjoyed my first project share!
I'll be back next Wednesday to share some more die inspiration!
