Here is my card for the challenges:
Here is a close up of the inside when the easel is open all the way:
I started with an easel card base (5 1/2" x 11") of SU Cranberry Crisp and scored and folded at 5 1/2" and 8 1/4" on the long side. I cut another 5 1/2" square of Cranberry Crisp for the card front. I layered the card front and insides with GKD Good As Gold and patterned paper from the K & Co. Glad Tidings Die Cut Card pad. For my tag, I stamped the beautiful image from Flourishes Petals and Peace set with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it with Copic markers. I was lucky enough to have won these wonderful stamps during the November release festivities last month! I don't have the matching Flourishes die so I just cut out narrow mats for the tag with scissors. (Note to self - get the die!!). I popped up the tag with foam tape and added a triple-loop bow made from dyed seam binding from My Craft Spot and a vintage button from my stash. I used two beautiful Cheery Lynn dies on my creation - the Fanciful Flourish die and the Border Carnivale die, both cut from Good As Gold. I used the border on the inside as the easel stop. Finally, I added white Wild Orchid Crafts roses in three sizes that I airbrushed with Copics. A few pearls finished the card front. I stamped the sentiment from Flourishes Sentimental Christmas set with Versamark on the inside and heat embossed with Gold embossing powder. I think that's it - got everything covered!
Thanks for stopping by! I really appreciate when you visit! Off to rest some more so this bug doesn't get me down. See you soon!
