Easter circlet


     Here's number 3 of my Easter creations featuring Art Impressions newest release.  The Easter Circlet Mini Tryfold is layering fun.


     I used my Prismas to color the images.  I stamped and die cut each of the images with the coordinating dies.  then I used my circle dies to cut two blank rings for layering.  For the sentiment I used the same dies to cut it from around the base image.  I then added it on top of the layering circles on the front of the card for some dimension.  The first two images are connected to the top of the card and the third is on the inside.  I used the Art Impressions Banner Double Stitched dies to layer the images on and embossed the base panel for the card front.


     Have a blessed day!
