Good Morning Bloggers!
Hope you are all well crafting along happily! Today's card was a commission I had recently,where I really didn't have much time to make it. I usually only make cards with two weeks notice, but as this was for a 100th birthday, I couldn't turn it down could I?
Sorry it's not much of a photo, I always find easel cards hard to photograph and this was a pretty big one at 8x8!
I started with a plain blank which I scored and folded into a basic easel; then I chose three different papers, mostly from my 12x12 scrapbook stash to make sure I had enough for all the bits....I used a plain pale green..not turquoise as it appears in the photo! Then I used some oatmeal foundation card (2 pieces of A4) and finally some floral patterned paper that had been in my scrapbook box for a long time. It was one of those sheets that I liked at the time of buying, but had never found a use for, it has actually got a hint of glitter over it and is a lovely textured piece of card. So I thought I'd give it a go on this card.
The base was matted and layered, as was the folded side and then I cut three different sizes of Spellbinders Grand Labels 23. I typed the greeting and cut it out on Labels Four Small. The butterfly, from Spellbinders Wings of Hope is cut on the patterned paper and a layer of wax paper! I love this paper, I'm not a huge vellum fan, but I love using this with dies because of the soft waxy feel that it has. The '100' was cut on my little Cricut and I finished off with some flowers, which seemed to go with those on the paper and some gems.
Thanks for stopping by!
