Simple Easter Wishes

Looking for a very simple Easter card?  Well, here you go.  This card features a technique that was highlighted in the last Stampin' Success magazine-- a quarterly magazine that SU demonstrators get.

This card features the Natural Composition Designer Paper.  It is a heavy craft paper that has different designs clear embossed on them.  In order to make the design pop, I sponged over the entire piece with Whisper White craft ink.  This subtly colored the background part, making the embossed portion POP. 

This particular piece of designer paper has a dogwood design, which I thought was perfect for Easter.  I simply mounted the piece of Natural Composition paper on some Chocolate Chip cardstock and then on a Baja Breeze card.  I created a tag with the decorative label punch and stamped "Happy Easter" from the Well Scripted set in Chocolate Chip.  It's hard to see but I added some vines from the set Tiny Tags in Lucky Limeade.  Since SU doesn't have a punch to layer with the decorative label punch, I often punch out a complementary color and layer it under the white with part of the color hiding out. 

I added the greeting to the card with dimmensionals and some Baja Breeze seam binding ribbon.

Love that Baja Breeze color! Looks great with the kraft of the composition paper, and I love how you highlighted the embossing with the white ink. Clever trick on layering the label punch, too. This is really adorable, Amy!
