Classic Easter Card

What better color combination to use for an Easter card than green and purple?

This card is folded on top and has two rounded corners. I rounded the corners on the base as well as the green design paper layer.

The green design paper is darker on the bottom and gets lighter towards the top. I used a square punch to cut the window into the green layer.

A square piece of purple cardstock was cut about 1/8" bigger than the window in green layer.
Two strips of ribbon were thread through the loop of a silver cross. I simply used tape on the back of the purple square to hold the ribbons in place.

I attached the purple square to the card base, right behind the window of the green design layer. Before you adhere the piece, make sure it is place right.

The green design layer is attached with foam dots to raise it up from the card base and create a little shadow box around the cross.

I picked a phrase from the bible and printed it out on vellum paper. The sentiment is attached to the front with tiny dots of glue.

Three little flowers from the same papers used in this card are punched out and adhered together. A little rhinestone finished each flower off.
