Ive had a couple of these easel cards in my stash for a number of months and it wasn't until I went away with a few like minded people for a weekend did I get them out and make something with them. I 'm glad I did as I love the result.
I had a lovely crafting weekend away with like minded people. Unfortunately a good friend was unable to come and was sorely missed. I made a variety of cards one of which was another easel card.
For this card I used a Pure Innocence stamp which was paper pieced, its wings were given a sprinkle of glitter. The die cut butterflies were suspended on wire and again glittered and glossed.
I am going to enter this into Papertake Weekly's challenge - Bingo the line I've used is glitter, free and diecut and Stampalot - Pink
Items used :
Melissa Frances Organza Pouf Ribbon in pale pink available from , beaded string, adhesive flat backed pearls, vintage bronze charm painted with paint dabber and gingham ribbon- all available from The Ribbon Girl
I have seemed to lose my card making mojo so cards are a little lacking from me at the moment however I have a week off work and am going away at the weekend with some fellow crafty girls so thought I would get into practice with this girly card.
For this easel card I used an image from one of the Lilli of the Valleys art pad and their paper. I added glossy accents and glitter. I made a banner and tied it onto florists wire painted with acrylic paint as I did with the bronze vintage frame which I sprinkled with glitter.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
