I haven't made a round easel card for a while! With the shape of this image, I was inspired to create another one. When the easel is closed, the card looks like this:
And here it is opened up:
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Vintage Stamping Challenge - Black, Orange, Purple, Red or Green.
CRAFT Challenge - Christmas
CHNC - Something Round
The Sailing Pineapple - In The Round
I have used some green cardstock to create the basic easel. The patterned paper I have used comes from one of the new Christmas paper pads by Kaisercraft. The 25 topper is from the same paper pad. The snowflakes around the border are the waste from a snowflake border die by Memory Box. I embellished these with some tiny pearls. The ribbon is grosgrain ribbon from Sugar and Spice Studio. I added some larger pearls to the base of the easel card.
The image is an acrylic stamp from Flonzcraft. Colouring is with a combination of copic markers and water colour pencils from Faber Castell. I used all the colours in the colour challenge at Vintage Stamping Challenge although there is not much black there.
