Easel Cards

Hi there,

Are you ready for another challenge over at Cardz 4 Guyz - our male-themed challenge blog? Well this week Helen has chosen a new theme and we would love to see your 'EASEL' projects this time. Here's what I made for my DT inspiration ...

I used the traditional 'easel' shape, but included a twist by adding a transparent topper! The main card measures 6x6" and is folded in the traditional way. I then used one of my Spellbinder dies to cut away the topper shape. Next I cut a blue frame using the same shaped die and added a piece of acetate behind it, before securing the Wellington Bear topper. A little band of blue and my sentiment forms the stopper on the bottom. A few die-cut stars and some adhesive pearls to finish off. Ta da!

Hope you can join us this week with your own makes.
Hugz, Jan xx
