This design is an obvious choice for Easter, but perfect for every day. "He is Risen" embodies what it means to be a Christian.
Embroider the design on 14-count Aida using DMC floss. It is stitched 5" x 7" (using 14-count), with full coverage from top-to-bottom and side-to-side.
This a good project for beginning and/or young stitchers, as it uses only full cross stitches and backstitches. In addition, it has larger blocks of a single color instead of many intricate color changes.
