Easter card

My boyfriend and I were out playing tennis yesterday, and the church down the street had it's bells ringing out the tune "The Old Rugged Cross".  As I found myself singing along, this card popped into my head.  The cross is simply the Pooh font cart wood feature used to cut a lowercase "t", and grass cut with Plantin Schoolbook.  The purple ribbon is from Michael's, the background paper is from DCWV Rustic stack, and the "hill" is hand torn.  I bent up and inked the grass blades for some dimension, too.

The outside and inside sentiment were printed, and the sunrise was the toughest part.  It probably doesn't even look like a sunrise, but I made it up myself from the basic shapes in MTC with a circle and rectangles, using the warp feature.  Also, the clouds are from Pooh and Friends.  Thanks for visiting!


  1. Very pretty! That is one of my all time favorite hymns. You did a beautiful job and the Pooh Font worked perfectly for the old rugged cross!
