Crucifix Easter Card

This is the Easter card that I decided to send to my family this year.  It is so fun for me to go over the top with cutesy elements while I am making cards.  In fact, that is what I LOVE to do.  However, I was very drawn to make a religious card this year for Easter.  One that encompasses the reason why we even have this holiday!  I also made some of these cards to send to OWH for the troops.  This amazing SVG file was free from (just scroll down on that page and you will see a picture of it.)  I thought the background paper worked perfectly for the whole theme and the three square brads at the bottom represent the nails that were in Jesus' hands and feet.

Just a peek at all the different layers that I cut with SCAL2 and my Cricut for this card...8 layers in all for this card, not counting the card base.
This is the sentiment that I printed for the inside of the cards.  I just love the meaning of it!

I hope you have a very blessed Easter season!

  5. Wonderful Easter card. It's a good reminder of the meaning of the holiday. So many people are wrapped up in the bunny, they forget the real happy part. I love the background too-the clouds and rays of sun are great. They really make Christ's image vividly bold. Thanks for sharing at My Paper Crafting.
