Easter Greetings

     Happy Easter to everyone.   I just wanted to post a Holiday Greeting to all.
It is a gloomy and rainy day here and I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to give a holiday greeting and post my most recent creation.    I did multiple cards in same design for sending out to family and friends.   I tried to keep them all with a clean and simple look. 
This first photo does not really show the shiny white with gold sparkly paper used for the cross. 

This second photo shows the shiny paper that  I used for the embossed cross. 




Supplies used on cards:
Darice's Cross with Script Embossing folder,
Recollections White with Gold Sparkles,
Uncertain on the name of the Designed papers used,
Bazzill Purple Sparkle Card Stock,
Memento Elderberry Ink,
Embellishments on some cards are:
Recollections small purple pearls,
and on other cards
Nuvo Crystal Drops in Pink Raspberry

Thanks so much for stopping in to view my blog posting.  I hope you have a very blessed day!

Snowflake Shaker

     I know I am posting this card out of sequence.  I overlooked this one in my saved files until now.   I thought I would post it and share with everyone what an awesome shaker some background dies can make. 
     I got this new Snowflake die around the Holidays.  I could not wait to find a little spare time to sit down and play around with a haul of goodies I had ordered from Scrapbooking Made Simple.  I am in love with the specially designed sets that the owner, Stacey, of Scrapbooking Made Simple has created.  The Snowflake Background Die is part of a collection set called the Simply Defined Winter Wonderland Collection.
     Here is a picture of the die cut I was cutting out the snowflake on the lower levels and stacking the outer portion of the die to give the height needed for a shaker area.
     Once the layers of the outer portion of the die cut were glued together, I then started to assemble the outer layers of the card before trying to finish up the shaker section.  For the backing of the shaker section, I used a silver glitter paper for an additional bling layer dimension to shaker.  Gold micro beads and round red sequence were used in shaker.
