Soft and Feminine Easter Blessings

Nothing says Easter to me more than seeing a little girl all dressed up in a pretty frilly dress….my personal favorite is dotted swiss.  The card for today takes all the fine detailing often found in little girls dresses….tiny stitching, edging, and of course a soft color..in this case vellum that’s been Cuttlebugged with the new dotted swiss folder and placed over light pink cardstock.


 For the main image I used Croygen White brushed metallic paper, then stamped the Flourishes Easter Blessings in Hybrid Palette Noir. I colored the image using Prisma colored pencils and Copics metallics.  Using the colorless blender allowed me to continue the soft range of colors.  I just love this soft look.  The metallic paper is lightly sponged with a soft pink ink then I added the edge details by hand.  The next layer is plain white cardstock and a thin edge of spring green.  The CBed vellum was adhered to the soft pink cardstock which I had run thru my Xyron.  The pink scalloped ribbon was cut down the middle to make the pretty detail against the spring green cardstock.  The same techniques were used for the sentiment…..of course the final detail on any little girls dress would be a ribbon sash…so I added that detail to the card to complete the look.

Ciao from the Atelier,
