VERY VELLUM...

Embossing on White Vellum creates a delicate and unique effect...

Black

I used the Spider Web Embossing Folder

to achieve this pattern...

and to continue the translucent elegance,

I repeated the vellum as an inside layer...

EASTER BLESSINGS...

According to legend, the dogwood once grew as a tall, straight tree.  But when the dogwood was used to make the cross, Jesus was so moved that He promised the tree would never again grow large enough to be used for such a purpose.  Designing a card for Easter with a cross and a dogwood-type flower, gives this card special meaning...

Easter1 
 I only used two layers of the three-layer Fun Flowers Die...

Easter2 
 And three pearls remind us of the three crosses...

Easter3 
We have reason to celebrate...

Easter4 

... HE IS RISEN!

Easter5

 
I wish you very special Easter Blessings!
