This is a card I made for my daughter's 10th birthday. The main image is from the Docrafts 'Me to You' Tatty Teddy "Especially for you" A4 decoupage pack and was diecut so it was super-easy to just pop out the pieces and layer them together with dimensionals. The designer paper and sentiment panel are also from the same decoupage pack.
I really went to town with the Easel card and tried to make it as pretty and sparkly as I could :-)
The pink lace doily was diecut using a Cheery Lynn French Pastry Doily DL102 die and my Big Shot. The pink diecut heart is a Memory Box Sofia Heart die and I added some tiny pink Molossi gemstones to all the flower centres on the heart.
If you have a close peek, you might see that I tied on a silver charm underneath the ribbon bow on the back card panel. On the back of the charm, it says 'Made with love'. The light teal organza ribbons were attached in 2 separate elements and both bows were made using my Bow Easy. I added some Fray Stop to the cut ends of the ribbon to stop them from fraying. The pink paper roses are from Enthaily Wholesale (Australian company). Because the roses had a yellowy-green calyx underneath them, I removed that part because it didn't match my colour scheme and looked pretty awful. Instead, I diecut a star from the Colormates Light Awesome Aqua cardstock and glued that underneath the flower - which looked much nicer.
The sentiment panel is up on dimensionals and I used 3 pink Sparklets to hold the back panel in place - these were glued on using Crafter' Pick Incredibly Tacky glue. The pink diecut corners on the bottom panel are a Cuttlebug Vintage corner die (I used my Cuttlebug for diecutting them as I don't know the correct sandwich for my Big Shot). I added 3 tiny pink Molossi gem stones to each corner of the Vintage diecuts. I used my Perfect Layers Tools to trim my layers to 1/8".
I went crazy with the Kindyglitz Crystlina glitter glue all over the card which I know is a little hard to see in the photo but believe me when I say that most parts of the card are glittered LOL!
I am pleased to report that my DD *loved* her birthday card - and moreso, because she is a very BIG Tatty Teddy fan :-)
I am popping this card into the SCS Technique Lovers Challenge TLC242 of Easel Cards from ages ago. You can click on this link for more information on the challenge and there are details on how to make an Easel Card: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...D-t463458.html There are no time limits for these challenges which is great. They are easy to make - even for me who finds anything other than an ordinary fold quite difficult - so give it a try :-)
