Today I am sharing an elegant clean and simple Easter card with you. I recently purchased this gorgeous Nellie’s Choice embossing folder called Cross with Lilies. This folder is so pretty and does not need many embellishments and today I have used it for an Easter card but it could be used as a sympathy card instead.
My Project Today
My card base is 5 3/4″ x 4 1/2″ – slightly larger than a normal A5 card so that I could create some layers behind the embossed layer. I have handmade some lilies using the Garden Lily flowers from Heartfelt Creations out of Rajni Chawla’s flower shaping paper. The leaves behind it are from the Creative Expressions Finishing Touches – Leafy Branches. The sentiment is from Amazing Paper Grace Merry Everything Words Etched Dies from the Right Words Collection by Becca Feeken.
To finish the card I have dusted the flowers with some glitter after painting the flowers with a clear gloss gel medium.

There is a tutorial in the Amazing Paper Grace – Encouragement Community on how I have made these flowers here. If you are not a member feel free to ask to join and don’t forget to answer the questions.
I have used two different colours of yellow to represent the sun.
I have die cut two sentiments – one from Snowdrift and one from gold cardstock and stacked them together with the gold on top before adding them to the card front.
I have used the same colours from the card in the butterfly to help with tying the whole card together.
The green foliage helps the daisies really pop on the side of the card.
I have used two different sets of daisy flower dies to create depth and dimension for my florals.
