Easter Greetings

Or we can call this post ” Late for Dinner” lol

I am famous for making cards at the last minute but usually it doesn’t make us late…tonight we were 15 minutes late to Easter dinner at my Mom’s. Good thing we only had to walk up the street!

I used this pretty calla lily stamp for the first time. I bought it from Taylored Expressions a year or two ago. Since it’s a bit large, I went with a square card and the sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 was perfect for it. I really wanted to add Diamond Glaze to the vase but I didn’t want to carry a wet card to my Mom lol


Here is the sketch~




I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Going Grey with Scrap Creations – Easter
Papertake Weekly – Easter
Sister Act Card Challenge – Anything Goes

It’s time for dessert so I have to go! I’ll be back tomorrow with my nephew’s Easter card (which I still need to make lol!!)


Stamps: Taylored Expressions Calla Lily Bouquet
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
CS: Papertrey Ink Stampers Select, Copic Xpress It

  • What a beautiful card and I just love that stamp. Calla lilies are so pretty, just the touch of green to the stems is perfect.
    How was dinner?

  • Yay for using a stamp that hadn’t been used! Pretty card! I giggled at the not wanting to add the diamond glaze so your Mom wouldn’t have a wet card. Great job!

  • Kristie love your Easter card for your mother and I bet she loved it as well, it was worth being 15 minutes late and waiting for. Yes I’m a little like that and leaving family cards until the last minute. Great image and added embellishments. Great card and thanks so much for sharing it with us over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday2 and good luck.
