Heartfelt Creations - Lilies for Easter

 Happy Easter my friends!

May this joyful season of Easter fill your heart with 

renewed hope, love and peace!

Instructions: Card size is approximately 7 x 5”. Place the largest Palace Gateway Die about 5/8” over the top of a tent fold 7 x 5” card base and die cut to create shaped card base. Using the same die, cut again 1x from white cardstock and 2x from Garden Lily Paper Collection sheet 4A. Ink the edges of the designer paper using Cactus Flower Archival ink, adhere one to the white diecut, stamp the ‘Happy Easter’ sentiment with the same ink and adhere to the card front using dries clear adhesive. Trim the top of the second designer paper, stamp the cross image and the ‘He is Risen’ sentiment using Archival Shadow Gray ink and adhere to the inside of the card. Using the same die set, cut the decorative die once from white cardstock and once from Luxe Silver cardstock, adhere the two together, slightly offset, with the white on top, snip the gate open and adhere to the card front.

Stamp the Garden Lilies on Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper using VersaColor white pigment ink, cover with Opaque Embossing Powder – White and heat set using the Heat It Tool. Color using Cactus Flower ink, diecut using the coordinating die and shape in the 3D Garden Lily Mold. At this point, I had forgotten to add some color to the backs of the flowers, so I took a dauber and added some Cactus Flower ink to the embossed backs and got a really pretty effect. Adhere two petals of the same size together, offset, to create the lilies. Using the Groove Golf tool, pierce a hole in the flower centers, insert the Petite Pollen Stamens and secure with hot glue. I used the white stamens, sponged them with dries clear adhesive, dipped them in the Crystal Ultrafine Transparent Glitter and added a dab of Cactus Flower ink to the tips. Stamp the Garden Lily leaves using Archival Olive ink, color using the same ink, diecut, add more ink to the edges and the back of the leaves and shape in the 3D Garden Lily Mold. 

Using a paint brush, brush the flowers and leaves with watered down dries clear adhesive and cover with Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear glitter. Adhere the flowers and leaves to the card front as shown using hot glue.
