Welcome to the newest two week Cardz 4 Galz challenge! Our host for this time, Caz, chose creating an easel card as the theme. There are so many different kinds of easel card tutorials and styles of which the creations of my fellow design team members are just a few examples. When you finish here, I hope you will visit the challenge site to get inspired to create your own easel card. Please remember to post it to our gallery so we can all enjoy your creation!
Here’s my easel card creation:
You might remember that I posted a similar easel fold for the April Sparkles Christmas Buddy challenge. You can see that post here. Once again, I used the video posted by Connie Stewart from Simply Simple Stamping because this one post had two options for a very similar easel card. You can see the very talented card set created by Connie here. Her directions are all-encompassing and easy to follow.
I embossed all the sentiments on this card using my Versamark ink pad, gold embossing powder, and my heat tool to set. The addition of the adhesive backed gold swirls helps to bring out the gold.
I used the Fancy Flora DSP, which can be found in the current mini-catalog. This paper is stunning, gorgeous, fabulously textured in design, and just plain wonderful. Take a look:
I used the paper pattern on the top, left-hand corner. Beautiful!
Thank you for stopping by my blog today!
Have a Peachy Day!
It’s a Color Refresh Time of Year!
There are new and returning colors coming with the new catalog! Sadly, there are also colors that will be retiring. One that makes me sad is Mango Melody, mainly because I’ve recently started really playing with it.
Take a look at this SU! video with the new, returning, and retiring colors:
LAST CHANCE up to 60% OFF ITEMS from the CURRENT and MINI Catalogs
Just take a look at these LAST CHANCE lists! I know they are small, but click on the images to download or enlarge them. I’m always sad to see what’s retiring, but then I think of all I can sell when the current catalog ends so I can get new goodies!
Do you live in the U.S. and want to place an order?
Of course you do! Who can resist items up to 60% off?
