Good Morning Ladies, well Ive at last created a card for at least one challenge, not sure Cute Card Thursday will accept my easel card but Im going to enter it and see what happens. Anyway this card has been created for Mo's Challenge "Easel" and Cute Card Thursday Challenge "Anything by a Square" I know Im stretching it a bit but its more oblong than square. Ive used this gorgeous image of Mo's called "Rae doing her journaling", or what we would say in the UK keeping up her diary.
Ive stamped her onto white card then coloured here with my copic pens, after which Ive cut her out with my circle Nestabilitie die and also used a scalloped one to mount her on. The sentiment is one I have in my stash and this was then cut out to create a ribbon tag. Before mounting both Ive used a mauve inkpad around the edges to distress it and then mounted both up afterwards.
The base easel card is a 7"x 7" design and two base layers are the same design from Donna's Bearly Mine Designs this one is from the Vintage set, Ive used two pieces of mauve card as my first layer and the paper was then stuck on top. For the inside Ive used another of the design a pretty rose and lily pattern to create a strip on which Ive used a border punch along both edges, over this Ive layered up a piece of the same mauve card which has been run through my cuttlebug with a rose embossing folder, then my ribbon tag was then attached to the back of this before sticking down on the inside.
The front on my card is the same as the base for the inside but Ive then created a square with the same pattern paper with my all around the edge arch punch sets from Martha Steward this was then attached to my mount but before doing so I used another of the same embossed pieces of card and stuck this at the bottom of this layer then the square was stuck on top before I then positioned my mount in the centre.
To finish of Ive created a flower spray with some cherry blossoms, roses and asters this was then stuck above the image on the left hand side.
Ive entered this card into the following challenges:-
