He Is Risen

I spent the morning working on an Easter card for our stamp club's March meeting. I wanted a card that tells the true meaning of Easter. It is not about the Easter bunny, candy or eggs. It's about the fact that Jesus died, was buried and raised from the dead in order to provide my Salvation.

I began by cutting this Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps die out of black card stock. I have had the die for a couple of years and have never used it. It is time! To create the background, I began by sponging blue ink onto a piece of white card stock. Stamped the sun (from the SU stamp set "Kinda Eclectic") in SU Crushed Curry ink. Black card stock was used to create the mount. The sentiment was from a very old Cornish Heritage Farms set that I purchased before the company went out of business. I trimmed the focal piece, layered it with a piece of blue card stock and added it to a white card base. Simple. I wanted to add something else but stopped. Not sure what that something else should be.

He is not here; he has risen!
Remember how he told you,
while he was still with you ...
"The Son of Man must be delivered
into the hands of sinful men,
be curcified and on the third day
be raised again."
Luke 24:6-7 NIV


  1. Wow, this is perfect for the real meaning of Easter! Without our Risen Savior, we would not have the gift of eternal life through our faith in Him! Thanks for sharing this sweet card with all of us- hugs and I hope you have a blessed 2017!

  2. Dianne - what a perfect reminder of His great love for all mankind. Thank you.
