Love you muchly

I've been seeing some awesome cards done this way, the easel card, but thought it would be too complicated for every day card making. Well, I was wrong, and I am hooked! I really love this style of card because you can decorate the inside of the card and it will still be partially visible while it's on display. I am so slow to try new things, this tutorial was featured on Splitcoast a while ago, and I never bothered to try it!

I used some new papers from October Afternoon's Thrift Shop collection. What an awesome, nostalgic collection of papers! Not sure if I'll ever use the London map, or sewing pattern papers, but the rest of the set is so pretty.

Well, I'm off-- I'm on a card making ROLL and don't want to interrupt it for too long. I have to take advantage of it while it's here, because it seems if I neglect it for too long, the mojo goes on hiatus, LOL!

Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Beautiful work! Love this! My MIL loves when I give her an easel card because she says my cards are too top-heavy and fall down all the time! LOL!!
