He is Risen! – ODBD Anything Goes Challenge

Today is our last challenge of the month and it’s Anything Goes with ODBD stamps! This month has been an amazing release month and everyone in the design team has showcased some gorgeous, inspiring cards and projects. It’s been s joy seeing all of it!

Today I’m sharing a card with a bit of an eclectic take, in lime green, peach and gold, using vellum.

I used a technique called partial die cutting which consists basically on stamping an image and then die cutting on top of it without cutting the image. I die cut a label around the heat embossed roses and then I fussy cut the rest of the image. I colored the roses stamped on the vellum with a very light green alcohol marker.

I die cut a frame with a pretty polka dot pattern but added a peach cardstock on the back to create an unexpected contrast. I added the vellum label and then a piece of peach ribbon across it. Then on the center I used the smallest label from the Vintage Flourish Pattern set, die cutting it twice and layering around a clean label. I stamped a sentiment from the new Happy Resurrection Day set.

To finish the design I sponged the edges of the frame and label with green ink and added a few pearls.
