I was amazed when I saw someone make a cross out of the die cut strips in the Flourish Thinlits Dies for this Easter Cross Card. You will have to trim some of the ends with your Paper Snips to get the correct size you want. After I made the cross, I stamped some flowers from the Basket Bunch Stamp Set and die cut with the Basket Builder Framelits Dies. Both the stamp set and framelits are on sale right now on the Retiring Products List, actually a little cheaper than buying the Bundle. I cut out quite a few flowers and colored them in with markers and tried to fit them on to the cross. I just wasn’t getting the right layout. Then I finally just put one single flower in the center of the cross and that was it! Actually, when I did that it reminded me of some small wooden crosses my brother made a gazillion years ago, me might have copied one someone gave my grandma as a gift, I don’t remember. And each white painted cross had a lovely plastic flower in the center! That was the thing back then!
I also die cut several pieces of the grass with the Basket Builder Framelits and played around with using three pieces or one. In the end, I liked the simplicity of one piece of grass just as the base of the cross.
The Easter cross card base is Whisper White although it is difficult to see in the photo. Next is a layer of Soft Suede with a layer of Soft Sky over that. It’s really a very easy card and will certainly mean something to whomever you send it!
