FTTC53 -- Easel Card


Happy Tuesday and it's time for another Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge. Before going into this week's challenge, I would like to say big thanks to all of you who participated last week's FTTC One Year Anniversary Challenges!! It was so fun to see all of the fabulous cards!
Don't forget to check out the winners of the challenges at Flourishes blog!

OK, back to this week's challenge (FTTC53) -- Please give a warm welcome to Barbara Anders , our NEW FOF blog team member! Barbara is jumping right in with a challenge. Barbara is challenging us to easel cards. Never tried an easel card before, no problem. Here is an SCS video easel card tutorial which includes ingredients lists, measurements, and individual pictures as well by Beate Johns. We would love to see what you create!


My easel card was used Angelic Love set and Clouds background stamp. The card was also combined SCS Featured Stamper 157 (FS157)! Some of you already known that Barbara was the featured stamper!!! What an exciting week for her!! Congratulations Barbara. I cased this card and changed the card format, embellishments, and the stamped image. The striped designer papers, colors and heart mat were inspired from her card...I even thought the angel wings were similar to the bunny ears, lol.

The angel was colored with Copic markers and adhered on the heart shaped mat that was cut with Spellbinder Nestabilities. The inside of the card was decorated to match with the card front. To finish the card, I added the satin ribbon, pearls and heart stickers.








Don't forget to check the rest of FOF's creations!!
