Happy Easter

With Easter coming this weekend, I thought I'd share an Easter card with you today. When I first saw this image, I immediately thought of an old hymn we used to sing in church, "The Old Rugged Cross." So I tried to create a card that sort of has a rugged look.

The card base is Kraft CS that was stamped with the Lines O' Plenty background stamp in VersaMark ink.  A strip of brown CS with some burlap ribbon attached was added to the side of the card base. The main image was stamped with Memento Black ink on Kraft CS, colored with copics, die cute and layered on the brown CS. The sentiment was stamped in Black on Kraft CS, die cut and layered on brown as well. I added the heart charm with some brown baker's twine on the burlap ribbon. The charm says peace and love.

Thanks for stopping by today. This week's challenge is to "Pop goes 1 Color" and we want to see black, white and one other color on your card. You can see details here. We'd love to have you play along.

Until next time,


  1. I do remember the song. This is by far one of the classic scenes and I love it. You created a magnificent card with it, rugged and timeless.


  2. I love the burlap and the sentiment. It's beautiful.
