Easel Card...

I have seen some amazing Easel Cards out in blogland but have yet to try making one myself, until now. As soon as I saw the new Grand Labels Twenty Three dies I knew they would look great on the front of a card. And I thought, why not try to make an Easel Card? Here's my creation...

I had to change up the sizes in the instructions to make it fit with the front I chose but I made it work. I cut, embossed and inked my Grand Labels Twenty Three and layers of Grand Rectangles then assembled the easel. After cutting the Fancy Tags Two shape, I stamped the sentiment from the JustRite Kindness cling set and added the Fancy Tags Two Nestabling. My favorite part of this card is the Spiral Blossom. I cut one from white and one from pink cardstock and made mine a bit larger. Since this card is going inside a package I wasn't worried about bulk. ;) After getting my flower together, I cut two leaves from the Foliage set and inked and tucked them under my Spiral Blossom. A bit of crinkled ribbon and some pins finish off the front. To hold the card open I cut a Scallop Petite Border and added some individual blings.

The Spellbinders CHA Summer release was A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.!!! I don't know how they do what they do...over and over again...but I'm glad they do. :) If you haven't seen them or pre-ordered your favorites yet you can check them out HERE. We are expecting them to arrive toward the end of August so get 'em while you can!
