Church Easter Card

Today I'm showcasing this church card created for the newest Creative Cutting Challenge--ANYTHING GOES.  It was very simple to put together using my Church SVG as the main focus.
My card started with a Kraft card stock base.  I stamped (Hero Arts) directly on the base using Hero Arts Shadow Ink (Soft Sand).  I love the look this ink gives to kraft.  I layered on two different sized die cuts (Sizzix-Vintage Cabinet Card).  Using Vintage Photo and Dusty Concord Distress Inks, I shaded all the papers.  Next I cut the church in colored card stock.  The "stained glass" windows were created with Stickles.  Finally I die cut the banner (Spellbinders), distressed it with Black Soot DI and hand wrote the sentiment.  I added it to the card with black foam tape.

I hope that if you own an electronic cutting machine and use SVGs or similar files to create with, you'll join us and play along.  If you don't use SVGs, you should still click over as the Design Team always out does itself with creative inspiration!
