My Redeemer Lives

Hello Crafty Friends and Happy Easter to You!

Today is the day that the Lord has made and I will rejoice and be glad in it! And it is also the last day of the month, which means another posting for Crafters of Faith!

This month our hostess is Jeanette and here is what she had to say about the challenge:

Since we will be posting on Easter Sunday – March 31 – and since we are Crafters of Faith, I’d like us to create a religious-themed Easter card. No Easter bunnies and such, but instead a card that focuses on the Risen Lord! It can include Scripture and/or images, but needs to focus on the religious aspect of the holiday. He is not here; he has risen! (Luke 24:6)

My card is for my Mom. If there's any time of year that my Mom likes a handmade card, it's on Easter and she is with Jeanette--no bunnies (although we all agree that bunnies are adorable). My Mom cherishes her Easter card every year, because the promise that Jesus has risen and is alive in Heaven means everything to us. Our Redeemer Lives!
For her card this year, I've used another FAB stamp from Wax Fruit Company (by Artist Arielle Gordon) and then overlayed a Unity stamp sentiment on vellum. The image is colored in Copics and the ribbon is American Crafts; oh and there a little bit of Stickles too.

Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to check out all the other wonderful creations that my COF friends have made. See my side bar for the blog roll.
Have a Blessed Easter!

Oh Kadie! What a gorgeous card! I am unfamiliar with that stamp designer - but WOW!!! It is a beauty! And how very ingenious of you to overlay the image with a greeat verse! You are so creative. I am glad that you created this for your mom. I am sure she will treasure it!

I am so glad that our paths have crossed on SCS. It is my prayer that someday we will meet in person, as well!

Such pretty vivid colors. I love that you used a vellum, we were on the same wavelength on that one this round!

Your mom will have loved this card and the cute girl who created it.

Great job!

I can't imagine a more suitable Easter card!! You have it all here: The purples & yellows are certainly the right colors, the sentiment is perfect, your coloring is awesome (as we all know) and the image behind is the very essence of Easter!! Your mother will treasure this one like all the rest!
