Circular Easel card for Anyone for Anya?



The current challenge at Anyone for Anya is to make a circular card, so I had a go at a skewed easel card. It's not very skewed at all, I got the fold wrong!

Here's the front:



I used a Marianne die to give the base dimensions. Papers are Vintage Rose by Craftwork Cards, and they are gorgeous! They were a freebie with (I think) Quick Cards. I'm always a bit nervous about using very busy paper, but I hope the pearlised teal card gives enough contrast. The image is CC Designs, and the stamped ribbon and bow are a new stamp from LotV which arrived yesterday! I stamped the bow twice and glossy accented it and decoupaged it with foam pads. I glittered round the striped paper and added glitter to her buttons and flowers and glossy accents to her shoes.

Here's the inside:



The sentiment is also LotV, and I just raised it on pads to act as a stop.

The card is going to a darling little girl who will be 6 soon, and who has long blond hair like the image! I do like to tailor cards to their recipients!

Once I'd done the measuring and cutting, this was a very easy card to make!

I hope you're all enjoying this lovely warm evening!

luv, Mags x
