My Time to Craft DT #302 Easel card

Hi, guys! I hope you're all having a good weekend!

At My Time to Craft this fortnight we would like to see Easel Cards. Here is a link to Christina Griffith's instructions on how to make one, and also some variations. She also has a video.

I made a 'twisted' or 'skewed' easel - they look very impressive but they are actually quite easy!

I used a Sarah Kay image from Stampavie - sadly, the firm has closed down, because of what Bev Rochester calls 'epic piracy. So sad.

I coloured her with Copics and added Glossy Accents to her watering can. The image is die cut with a My Favorite Things Die-namics stitched oval die, and I distressed the edges with Broken China. The 'Thanks' die-cut is by Clearly Besotted and I added Glamour Dust for sparkle. The papers are First Edition Floral Pavilion.

The stopper is a LotV sentiment, raised on foam pads. I added 2 tiny crystal butterflies and some gems from stash.

Do have a go, especially if you haven't made an Easel Card before. Go and see what great work my teamies have done if you need inspiration!

Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x

Awww she's a real cutie Mags, love your pretty DP too!
It was an absolute shame that Stampavie closed - I've even noticed some stamp companies coming out with 'new' designs that soooo similar to older ones already out there that it's hard to believe it's a coincidence!
