Easter Cross for Helmar

Easter is just around the corner. It holds special meaning and great joy for me.
Our Savior overcame the cross for our sins to be forgiven.

I've created a special Easter decor project to help celebrate this year.
I've covered a resin cross with lovely spring colored flowers

Easter Cross

Tips and Techniques
I started out with a resin cross and adhered a variety of Wild Orchid Craft Mulberry flowers with Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive. As you can see in the photo, I placed a generous squeeze of adhesive on the back of this white rose, then adhered it to the cross. I placed all the flowers and Scripture to get an attractive arrangement, then started adhering. This is the last flower to go on the cross.

Although I mostly used the 450 Quick Dry Adhesive, I also placed a few of the flowers at an angle using Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots

I selected this Easter Scripture stamp to use and die cut a tag to fit the size of my stamp. I stamped in a coordinating color and heat embossed with clear embossing powder for extra dimension. The tag is adhered with 450 Quick Dry Adhesive.
