I love black with just about any color. The striking color combination always makes for a cheerful and bold card.  

Today's tutorial includes directions on how to use the "That's the Tag" Bundle to create this beautiful stained glass look.  

I've included written instructions below for those of you on a mobile device. There is also a PDF download available if you'd like to save the tutorial for future inspiration.  

Can you believe this is the last Friday of April?  

Have a fabulous weekend everyone!

Easter, Delicate Details and Suite Sentiments

Today's card has so many fabulous features that I had to title this blog post with at least three of them!

I hope you chose the Delicate Details Sale-A-Bration stamp set during the sale. This fun border was created using two of the images in that set.

I used the Basket Builder Framelits to die cut a negative opening in a piece of Whisper White cardstock measuring 1 1/2" x 1 1/2".  Behind it is small piece of Irresistibly Floral designer paper cut 1 1/4" x 1 1/4".  Small pieces of scrap cardstock were cut 1 5/8" x 1 5/8" in Pink Pirouette, Soft Sky and So Saffron.  If cutting isn't your thing, give the Layering Squares Framelits a try!

I sponged each piece of designer paper to reveal the beautifully embossed pattern.  Be sure to use a separate sponge for each color.  

My bunny needed a cotton tail so I trimmed off just one of the pom poms from the Mini Pom Pom Trim and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

The greeting is from Suite Sentiments - a favorite of mine in the Occasions Catalog - stamped in Smoky Slate.  I added a few small pearls were added randomly to the card front to finish it off.  

The result is a beautiful array of pastel colors, perfect for Easter!
