I wanted to create something that she could display and enjoy for longer than just that one special day. An easel card is the perfect solution!
Here is the card closed: Click on the images to make them larger.
The Label Framelits make it quick and easy to create a shaped card and add layers along the way. Although my doily sizzlit proved to be a challenge when I first received it, I LOVE it now that I have learned how to make it cut through all those intricate details. Kay Kalthoff, a demonstrator on Stampin' Connection, provided this video showing how to get beautiful results with the Doily Sizzlits.
Here is the card open:
Here is a closeup of the front to show the gorgeous details of this stamp. I used my reinkers in the lids of my stamp pads along with my blender pens to color the image in. The flowers are outlined with a light blue marker to add depth and I sponged over the image with Summer Starfruit. The outer edge of the layer and the doily are sponged with Soft Suede.
I hope you've enjoyed my easel card and are inspired to create one. You can find tutorials on Splitcoaststampers by searching 'easel card'. Please feel free to leave a comment and if you have any questions, please ask!
