An Easter Sketch for CTC#266

Hello and Welcome to our Sunday Night Blog Hop and challenge CASEING the CATTY.

To CASE is to Copy And Share Everything or to Copy And Selectively Edit, and we love to CASE from our Stampin' Up! catalogues.

For these next two weeks, we are using our Easter Sketch as inspiration!!

I'm using one of my favourite Sale-a-bration items - the glorious Flowering Foils paper and used this as my starting point for my Easter Card.  

I've paired it with Silver Foil which was embossed using the Subtle folder, and also Champagne Foil for the die cut cross from the Crosses of Hope dies.  This was positioned onto the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes dies.  

The greeting comes from the lovely Timeless Tulips stamp set and I really love its message of hope for Easter.  I've used a great tip from Elizabeth Gross for stamping onto vellum and wrapping it around the card so you don't see any adhesive!!   You can find her blog here

I'm loving all the shine and texture!!  I stamped using Soft Suede ink which I think coordinates well.

The greeting on the inside comes from the Hold Onto Hope stamp set which coordinates with the Crosses of Hope dies.  

Up next on our fabulous Easter sketch hop is the wonderful Rebecca.

Our hope is that you are inspired by our blog hop and challenge and we would love you to join in the fun with us and add your project inspired by this sketch to our challenge lineup on our facebook page!!  


  1. What a lovely card. I love how you have kept the pieces in the cross.

  2. Beautiful card, Julia. I love the mixed metallics and the sentiment is perfect.

  3. How lovely. The foil cross looks amazing. It's hard to focus on Easter this year. Take care.

  4. A perfect card for Easter with the different elements
