Good Morning Ladies, well its not really here in Gloucestershire its absolutely throwing it down, hubby did say yesterday we were in for some heavy rain and he wasnt wrong as its been raining since about 12 oclock last night its such a shame as yesterday was gorgeous and mild, but there you are the English weather has us all beat and will do its own thing.
Anyway todays card has been created for Pops "Sunday's with Santa" challenge and this week it was my turn to decide what the theme was and I chose Easel card. I was intriqued by Lorraine's double easel card she created this week and wanted to know if I could make one to, and guess what its easier than you think instead of folding the front piece across the middle you fold it corner to corner and bobs your uncle, the only thing youve got to remember is when you fold it back down flat you dont force it as has to turn to lay flat again the other piece.
Anyway Ive used this image of Edwin on his sledge and coloured it again with my copic pens, after which I cut him out with my rotatrim, the mount is white pearlescent card, the sentiment is one of the whimsey seal ones thats been stamped and cut out with a circle die then mounted on a scalloped one.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with two first mounts of white pearlescent card and one of two papers from the Nitwit Downloads, the first a white paper with coloured snowflakes on, and the second a red strip with a similar snowflake design, across the middle Ive wrapped a red and holly ribbon around and attached it to the back of the first mount, Ive then stuck both these base layers to my card base, and my mounted image in the centre of the top one and the sentiment in the middle of the base one.
I do hope that if youd like to start making a stash of Christmas cards ready for this year its a good idea to join out present team of girls even if you only come a couple of times a month youd soon start to have a pile of them by December. I should also say theres no prize so you not in competition with any one its just a bit of fun.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
