This was my first one. I used Chocolate Chip for the base and the layered it with Old Olive and some DP from Imaginisce. I used my new nesties Labels 9 to layer under the girl. The image is from The Angel Company set called Cupcake Cuties. Some ribbon, a button. See the bottom layer? I used my new Scallop Trim Border punch from SU! and I added a little button, too! Adorable, huh?
This one is really girly with all the pink, but I know just the person who will be getting this in the mail. This image is also from Cupcake Cuties and the base card is Pink Pirouette that I layered with Pixie Pink and some DP from Hot off The Press (that I've had forever!!). The ribbon is Rose Red from SU! and I used my Labels 9 nestie to cut the images on the main panel then I used my CB Swiss Dots folder to emboss it. The bottom layer I used my Scallop Trim border punch. I also did some paper piercing and faux stitching around the outer edge.
This was my last easel card. The base is Barely Banana that I layered with Certainly Celery and some DP from Imaginisce and Hot off The Press. I used my CB and ran the Certainly Celery paper thru with my Swiss Dots folder (can you tell, it's one of my favorites) and then cut it out with my nestie Label 1. Some ribbon, a button, my SU! scallop trim border punch and I was complete.
If you'd like to try your hand at an easel card go to the SCS resource page and pull up Easel Card ~ or just click HERE and it will take you there. I love to look every Wednesday and see what new technique they are doing. And make sure you take a look in the gallery set aside HERE for these cards ~ I'm sure that you will find lots of inspiration! This one was a while ago, but it's so much fun - quick and easy ~ and even better yet it fits in an A2 envelope!
Have a great day everyone!!
