I thought I would share with you two easel cards I have recently made. The first one is a friendship card for the July friendship card swap over on the Docrafts forum and was for Juli. I haven’t yet taken a photo of the card she sent me but this is the card I sent her. I used a die I have for my Big shot which is called wild flower ( I think) but it is very pretty and I was able to use my newly found skill of paper piecing. The papers were free ones I got with the Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine and are lovely. I use a glitter chipboard flower which was picked up in Poundland while I was on holiday and I added a bit more glitter to it as there was more glue than glitter on this particular one.
The second easel card is for my Dads birthday which is today (15th July ) and as it is now nearly midnight I’m sure he will have received it and won’t mind me sharing it with you.
I have had the jigsaw pieces in my stash for a long time but never really came up with a use for them until now. I was really pleased with how this turned out as it was a bit of an experiment for me. Easel cards are a bit of a new venture for me and making this one slightly stepped was really taking me out of my comfort zone but if you don’t try you don’t achieve.
My Dad is a great gardener and has a lovely garden every year. I hope he liked his card and I hope you enjoyed my little ramblings today.
