KS Monday -- Nov 16th, 2009

Happy Monday, everyone! It's another time for Kitchen Sink Monday!!
I made this easel card for today's KS Monday. I don't know why I waited so long to make one until now...it's very fun and easy!! (oh yes! I love the word "EASY", lol) I used this and this as a reference. Thank you Penny for the wonderful tutorial pages.
My finished card is 6" x 6" instead of 4" x 4". I wanted the word to stand out from the card so I layered 3" x 6" mat on the bottom half of the card front instead of using 6" x 6" mat.

The chipboard letters were paper pieced with the retired SU designer papers and edged with VersaMagic gingerbread. The Poinsettia flowers and the sentiment were stamped using 3 Step Poinsettia.

These are the steps I did for each image:
(poinsettia) 5th - Memento rich cocoa, 4th - Memento rhubarb stalk, 3rd - Memento lady bug, 2nd - lady bug (1 x stamp off), repeat, 1st - Memento cantaloupe (1 x stamp off), repeat
(leaves) 4th - rich cocoa, 3rd - cottage ivy, 2nd - bamboo leaves, 1st - Memento new sprout, repeat
