I created this card AGES ago at an OnStage event in November 2019. My friend Heather and I traveled to Hartford for a lovely weekend getaway and to enjoy a fantastic stamping event on Saturday. Oh those were carefree days! This card was one of the make-n-take projects that we created that day, and happily all of the supplies are still available. I know that with all the snow that we’ve had this winter that I’m really dreaming about spring flowers and looking forward to the lift to my spirits that they bring.

This is a pretty simple card to create because it is some stamping, a little punching and a bit of linen thread. We used the Timeless Tulips bundle for all of the images and the coordinating punch to pop out the images that add dimension. You can’t see from the picture but we also used Wink of Stella to add some shiny highlights on the tulips. I really love Wink, because it is so simple to use and it adds a special something to my creations.

I was just asked to design Easter cards for the Easter baskets that our church delivers to our members that are unable to leave their homes. This is a ministry that we’ve done for a few years now and I’ve worked with different groups over the years to create cards for the baskets. It originally started as a Lenten activity and then moved to something that the Women’s Spirituality group does at one of their gatherings. This year, since we can’t get together in person, we’re changing this project up again. I’ll be designing and prepping supplies, and our Christian Education director will get them out to the Junior Youth participants. Then we’ll be meeting via Zoom and we’ll make the cards together. I’m planning on using this set because it has a great sentiment that I plan to use for these cards. I’ll pair the sentiment with some pretty retired paper for a simple card that the kids can create pretty quickly. I hope that the kids enjoy making them and the recipients recognize the love in the cards.
