One of the most often used types of dies for my cards are the ones that help to create layers. Today I used such a set from Cheery Lynn Designs to help create my Easter card which is a CAS design but with lots of layers it really looks more artistic I think.
My focal image stamp is one I purchased years ago from a rummage sale and I loved the sentiment and simple design on it. It is a Stampendous design. I stamped it with Versafine Black ink and then colored the design in with Zig water color markers. I wanted the opposite corners of my card to have the same graduated look, so on the bottom left side I fussy cut the layers so that they sort of matched the upper right side. I messed up and used a different size of die and had to readjust them a bit but it still looked okay in my opinion. No sense wasting them. LOL
Here is what I added inside the card to bring it more into the spirit of Easter. The sentiments on the left are from Inspired by Stamping and the cross image with the sentiment is from an Arlington, South Dakota company that is no longer in business called Odlund's Gingerbread.
Now I don't know about you but John 3:16 to me is one of the most comforting verses in the Bible. It brings home how much our God and Jesus loved us. What a wonderful gift that God gave his Son to die for our sins so that we might have everlasting life. I ask His forgiveness and thank Him daily because without this most awesome gift I know my sins would never allow me to have everlasting life in Heaven.
Another view of the card from a different angle may show the layers much better. My layers were supposed to match the colors of the rainbow.
