Spread Kindness this Easter

Time is zooming along again and here it is Easter! I have a fun slimline Easter card on the Birch Press Design blog to share today using some fun new products.

The faceted rectangle from the Crystal Lingo stamp set was white heat embossed on to a 8 1/2" x 3 1/2" panel of Bristol Smooth cardstock. I ink blended over the panel in a rainbow using Distress Oxide inks. The colours are Kitsch Flamingo, Carved Pumpkin, and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide inks and Mustard Seed, Tumbled Glass and Shaded Lilac Distress ink.

The panel was trimmed down to 8 1/4" x 3 1/4" and it was attached to an 8 1/2" x 3 1/2" white card base with foam tape to add a bit of dimension.

I wanted to use the pretty background along with the Petal Layers die set in a way that one wouldn't overpower the other. I cut all three layers from heavyweight white cardstock. I adhered the layers together with liquid adhesive and once dry. 

I decided to use pinks and oranges as my egg colour from the background. You can place your egg anywhere on the card depending on the colours that appeal to you or your recipient.  I chose to place the dimensional egg on a angle. I placed small pieces of foam tape behind the egg to pop it off the  background.

The sentiment from the Blooming Spring clear stamp set was heat embossed and trimmed down and added to he panel with foam tape.

I love the idea of sending someone a landscape, slimline card. So easy to be displayed without tipping over.

Thanks so much for stopping in today!
