I have been mentally thinking of this card ever since I got these arches dies (Spellbinders). I do need to practice some more! I folded the cs, then carefully positioned the die so the left fold would not be cut - the cut starts at the beginning of the arch on the left. I embossed with the sizzix brick folder, to give the idea of a stone wall of a church. I also used the same folder to emboss the smallest arch, to form the basis for the stained glass. I colored with Sharpies. First I simply colored a yellow cross - deliberately creating a bit of an uneven shape. I randomly colored the shapes from the embossing folder, leaving a touch of space for the black pen. (I had thought about paper piecing but decided that was too labor intensiv for me!) I would appreciate comments and suggestions.) I think this is kind of "bottom heavy" but could not figure out what would work right to add to the top! The dies (blessings and branches) are Cheery Lynn. This is to use for an Easter card.
