I wanted to create some Easter cards that I could send to the young women and men who are serving missions from our church and so I began searching for images of Easter Lilies and found this beautiful digital stamp from Power Power entitled Joyful Lilies.
I imported the digital image into Microsoft Word, changed the line color to a light gray, and printed it with my HP LaserJet Printer, since I would be coloring the image with Copic Markers and didn’t want the lines to bleed.
The Copic colors used were: C1, C2; V25, V09; G43; YR15, YR07; YG93, YG97, YG99
After the coloring was complete I placed the image on a Silhouette Cameo PixScan Mat and took a picture with my cell phone. I then imported the picture into the Silhouette Software, created a trace of the image and then added a .04 outline and cut around the image with the Cameo. Since I was creating multiples I could do four images at a time.
I didn’t have a stamp that would give me the sentiment I desired, so I created a banner using the Table function in Microsoft Word, adding a gray fill and the words “Because of Him” in white font and it was perfect.
I wanted to add a background to the image so that it would standout on the card front so I die cut a rectangle using the 2nd largest Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Stackable Rectangles and ran it through the Sizzix Big Shot with the Sizzix Dotted Lattice Embossing Folder. This rectangle was glued directly to a top folding A2 Cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.
3M 1/2″ Foam Tape was added to the back of the focal image and added to the dry embossed rectangle. Foam tape was also added to the ends of the sentiment banner, which was placed towards the bottom of the focal image and the card was done.
