Easel Card




Yesterday was world card making day. I made two cards (if I had started earlier I would have made them all day!) and this is the first one. Magnolia-licious is having a challenge of making an Easel Card and you know me, I have to make any card that isn't standard and flat LOL! So here is my entry.

The Tilda by Magnolia is from the Fall collection called Yummy For Your Tummy. The designer paper is from Basic Grey - Porcelain. I used Labels 4 Nestabilities behind the main focal image by making the horizontal one smaller then the vertical one which kept the oval shape. The ovals are a mix of Stampin Up punches and Nesties. The border punch is by Martha Stewart. The flowers and buttons came in a kit together and then I just added the pearls on top. Tilda is colored with Prismacolor pencils. I think that's it, any questions please feel free to ask!

I LOVE this one! The background reminds me of the afghans your mom, Aunt, and grandma used to work on when we were kids. You should send this card to one of the women in your family for their b-day.

Awesome! This looks like such a fun technique that I really need to try it. Such a perfect way to display a card that deserves to be shown off. Love that Basic Grey panel -- it really makes Tilda and her primas pop!
