Easter Cross Card with Glue Dots

Ok, so how is it that I never did a blog post about this card?!? I made it two Easters ago, and it's been perusing Pinterest pretty heavily ever since! It might just be one of my favorite cards I've even done, and I love how easily it came together...and it was SIMPLE!
I started with a the floral paper from K&Company (Paper Doll Die-Cut Paper Pad). The paper pack was already curved around the edges, which went perfectly with this card. That was adhered to the
5x5 blue cardstock card base using Craft Glue Dots®.
Next came the paper doily. If you've seen my other work, you know I love using doilies! I've been known to snatch up pretty doilies on our restaurant plates before the soup spills onto it (or after...whatever...) to reuse. I conserved this extra pretty one and just used the small pieces that are showing around the 'sun' and adhered it with Micro Glue Dots® (one of my personal favorite sizes!!!).
The purple 'sunburst' was made from extra paint swatches! We got several samples when we were repainting our daughters bedroom, and I never, EVER throw them away!! I cut these at an angle and adhered them with Craft Glue Dots® - the back of these were a bit slick, and I used the Craft style to make sure they were stuck down for good! The yellow circle and the green ribbon were cut and adhered also using Craft Glue Dots®.

I had a TON of fun draping the purple ribbon, I think it just MAKES the card. I used a combination of Mini and Micro Glue Dots® to get it to stick in just the right places. Those Minis are perfect for getting into tiny spots, but still having the hold that you need!!
Lastly, I put on the wooden cross (Hobby Lobby) using Pop Up Glue Dots®. The Pop Up Dots get the cross up off of the page so the draping has room to, well...drape! I did a watered down wash of white craft paint over the cross to give it more of a uniform color.

It might have taken me two years, but I'm glad I'm finally sharing this card with all of you! If you make your own version of this card, I'd love to see it! Leave a link in the comments so I can check it out!
