I was thinking of what to make next and saw the new challenge from Magnolia-lious Highlights, an easel card. At first, I was not sure about it but after looking at the template and reading the instructions, the base card was easy to make...of course, there is the challenge of what to put on it - for me, that is the hardest part.
Usually, I will pick out my papers before my card stock, but this time, I did it in reverse. So my challenge was to find papers to go with it. I finally decided on this pack of DCWV 'Green Stack' recyclable papers. They have some really fun and cute designs to pick from. The beaver is actually on the paper, so I cut one out from another sheet and popped it up onto a Spellbinders scalloped circle. I also cut two Spellbinders scalloped circle frames to, 'frame' Tilda. You can get a lot of different Spellbinder dies at 7 Kids College Fund. I did not have the colors of flowers to coordinate, so I used a couple of Prima paper flowers and colored them with my Prismacolor markers. I replaced dark brown strip on the paper with one that has shimmery gold in it, it may be hard to see it on the photos.
This is what the inside of the base card looks like....using more Spellbinder scalloped circles.
This was so much fun to make and I will definately will be making more of the easel cards in the future.
Would love to know what you think, so add a comment and have a wonderful day.
