A big hello to you all from the bottom of the world, well very close to it.
It’s so amazing that technology can bring us all so much closer together and we can learn so much as we craft.
Let me share with you a double easel card; a birthday card.
Aren’t these papers simply gorgeous?
I’ve used one of the papers in the Little Birdie Watercolor Floral Ballet set of 12″ x 12″ printed papers and I totally love the blue colourings of this particular paper.
I’ve made two easel cards using white cardstock as the base and for my card shape I have used Spellbinders nestabilities metal dies.
I’ve cut out a selection of foliage pieces using both the patterned paper and a plain white paper. I’ve picked out a few gorgeous Little Birdie Crafts flowers and some sentiments.
Most of the time when I create I start off with a few embellishments in front of me so that I can simply pick and choose as I create.
I’ve added lots of embellishments, mainly foliage to build up my cluster on the front card. I’ve tucked in cheesecloth and crafting fibres to add a little more texture.
I’ve adhered my embellishments using a combination of gel medium and my hot glue gun.
Then to finish I have added a little more gel medium and randomly sprinkled mixed media stones.
With a toothpick I have spread a little white gesso.
I have adhered the small easel card to the bottom of the front of the larger easel card. This card will remain permanently joined together, open and on display.
Adhere the sentiment ‘wishing you a wonderful birthday’ to a layer of corrugated card [I’ve used a piece of the packaging from a big cardboard box].
I’ve also added a little gesso to my sentiment around the edges.
