Sweet Stamps Crosses Challenge

Today our challenge at Sweet Stamps blog is Crosses, create a card or project with this theme in mind. This is an awesome challenge, we want to see what you come up with for this theme. Can't wait to see what you all can come up with, but be sure to use a Sweet Stamps stamp....

Anyone can enter, but if you use a Sweet Stamps rubber stamp you get two entries into the challenge for a chance to win a $20 shopping spree. Visit the design team blog and you will see what everyone on the Design team has done.

 Here is my project:

I did some parchment crafting for my card today.  I used the "Large Easter Cross" and stamped it using some white dye ink onto a piece of parchment paper.  I then sprinkled some Fine White detail embossing powder over it and heat embossed it.  I then used my stylus' to do a bit of etching.  After I finished with the etching, I used some Memento Markers to add a bit of color to my image.  I then used a 4-split Needle Tool to go around the outside edges of my image to create a perforated edge.  I cut out a mat for my image using Cheery Lynn Scallop Coved Rectangle out of blue card stock.  I cut out 2 French Lattices out of blue cardstock. I made a gate fold card, so I placed one of the lattices on each fold, I had to cut it down to size in order to fit.  I then attached the coved rectangle with the parchment on it to the right side.  To finish off my card, I added some blue gems to give it a bit of sparkle.

Hope this will inspire you to get out those stamps and dies and see what you can come up with.

I like the way you have the card opening like a gate. The cross is gorgeous and I like the blue and white combo.

I love how you layered the cross on the card with the gate fold. Beautiful coloring on the vellum cross. Love how you used the French Lattice die as your background and added the gems.
