Happily Ever After Easel Card
On the crafting from, it's official, I'm addicted to easels! As per my previous post about getting healthier and spending lots of spare time walking this last week, I haven't had much time to do any paper crafting.
That said I did make a few easel blanks and create this card with some new dies I got recently two I mentioned recently in another post, they arrived on Tuesday morning and I used the Sue Wilson Special Occasion Happy Couple die and the Ornate Framed Happily Ever After die, to create this card. Coupled with the Spellbinders Elegant Ovals die set.
I kept the design very simple, I was originally supposed to be making some invites for someone but they changed their mind, but I'd already bought loads of linen card and purple mirror card, so I have stacks of it to try and use up. I think I'll use the majority of it making xmas cards teaming it with white and silver.
The oval easel I die cut from an A4 piece of card that I folded over and then used the largest die from my Tonic Studios Layering Mixed Oval Die Set, after that all I had to do was use the same die to cut 2 purple mirror panels, then cut two white shapes using the largest die from the Elegant Ovals set. I cut both the Sue Wilson dies out in the purple mirror card and another of the elegant ovals to form the stop for the easel. All I had to do then was glue it all together, I attached the stopper with some 3D foam pads and the card was complete. I did try adding some gems and flowers, but decided in the end that it looked okay as it was. I'm certainly going to make more of these for my charity box, although not in the same colours :)
