Happy Easter - may your day be filled with family and friends.
Friday's blog post talked about creating your own background. Here is another sample of this technique that I made into an Easter card.
The sentiment is inside the card. Look closely at the Damask oval. It has piercing elements on it. So easy to create the paper piercing look with these element dies. I used the Journey Foam Squares between the Green Olive oval and the Damask oval. That way it would add dimension but also allow light to peek through the piercing elements. This is the first time I have used the foam squares. I really like them. They are easy to use, already separated on the sheet and are small enough to fit in tinier spaces. They are evenly spaced between each other, so when you pull one off a number of them don't come off at the same time. We also have a 1/2" size. The Journey Foam Squares are a crafter's must have time in my opinion.
