Even though I try not to have favorites, the Documented collection is my favorite from the current Seasonal Expressions! Unfortunately, everything is retiring this Friday, so be sure to get your faves before they're gone!
Easel cards are easier than I thought they would be to make! This one started with a Saffron base. The sentiment, from the Sending Prayers stamp set, was stamped in Eggplant. The flowers were cut with the CTMH/Cricut Flower Market cartridge. The front is based on a sketch from Make It From Your Heart, Vol. 4.
This side view shows how the card looks as an easel.
For a very special birthday, I made this easel card using basically the same materials (with a Bashful card stock base). You can see that I rotated the sketch so that the sentiment square is at the bottom to balance the CTMH/Cricut Artistry balloon. (All of the cuts were made with the Artistry collection.) Can you see how I highlighted the stars and the balloon heart with the gold shimmer brush?
Here is the easel card opened.
And from the side...
The easel card is easier to make than you might think. Let me know if you'd like instructions!
