MY First Easel Card ......




I thought I would share with you a card I was asked to make, I have seen some beautiful easel cards over at Sarah's blog, Card Oasis, so I have used this as my inspiration and decided to have a go!!  I must say they are really easy to make and so effective too!!

I have used a 6x6 card base, cut the scalloped paper with my bigz xl die, papers are DCWV Sweet, Elzybells baby basket is coloured with promarkers, copic spica glitter pens, nesties, ms dollie punch, sizzlits baby pin, ribbon, charm, ribbon that pulls up into a flower, I used safmat for the sentiment.

I was really pleased with my first attempt, and so was the lady who had ordered  the card. I'm sure you will see a few more of these cards here!!

Hope your having a good weekend, we had an excellent time with friends yesterday at The Christmas Adventure, which is set up for halloween this weekend before Santa arrives, there are so many different activities  for all ages!!  Might take Lucy & Philip out Trick or Treating, if I'm brave enough!!

Thanks for stopping by

This is beautiful Angela. I have been making just baby boy cards lately. I already had one girl card but my friend's daughter had a boy so I didn't need it after all. Still it will keep. One of the girls at work will be a granny in March and another friend in February or March so it will maybe be useful then! Still waiting for Catriona. I think she gets more fed up every day. Can't blame her cos Poppy was induced at 10 days over and it wasn't a good experience for her. Just hope she goes soon!!

Another super card Angela, these easel card's are fab, and thankfully in my case easier than you would think... specialy as I am more of a by eye crafter.
I have not made any baby card's in ages and have been asked so I need to pull my finger out.
Love what you did, the ribbon and nappie pin are gorg,it's such a sweet card
