Happy Easter


Wishing you all a blessed Easter.  My husband and I are flying to Nashville for our son Stephen’s Baptism and Confirmation.  I made the above card for this special occasion.  I almost didn’t post it because of the numerous mistakes, but decided to go ahead and show you.  This is a perfect example of getting in over my head.  However, I think Stephen will appreciate my effort and will love the card.


A close up of the chalice.  It was made on a separate piece of parchment paper and adhered to the card with PergaKit 3D Adhesive.  The pattern design for this card is found in Pergamano Classic Designs.  Regular parchment paper was used for the card.  I dorsed a separate sheet of parchment with Dorso Crayons (brown) and inserted it into the card. 


Due to the nature of parchment’s translucency, it’s hard to get an upright picture.  The card’s true colors are shown in the first two pictures.

This is a quick post today girls.  I have tons to do before I start packing.  I’ll be back early next week with more designs.

  31. Joyce across the pond says:

    Easter Blessing to you and to Stephen….May God walk alongside him for the rest of his life and may he know His guidance each and every day.

    Beautiful card – no mistakes to be seen….must have taken forever to make but then it is a labour of love.

    Journeying mercies to you all.


  32. Tilda says:

    Beautiful card…..congrats to your son.

    I do want to say with reference to the mistakes:
    I teach quilting and the one thing I stress is this…the Amish put mistakes in their quilts on purpose! Yep that’s right! Why you ask…because their belief that nobody is perfect except for God, so don’t sweat the mistakes!!! It adds character besides that!! So Don’t sweat it! :0) Have a blessed Easter!

  33. Tonniece says:

    Stunning card to say the least. I truly see no mistakes and if there are some I should be so lucky as to make them and have a masterpiece such as this.

    Have a safe trip
