Hi Echo Park fans! Welcome to the blog today! It's Tya and I am up on the blog today to share with you my "Celebrate Easter" project. I am such a lover of fun shaped cards - they pack such a punch and its a fun way to add a little pizzazz to your card making. Today I am sharing with you an easel card.
To make my card I used the Scallop Circle Easel cut file that I cut out on my Silhouette Cameo. I started with a kraft cardstock base and then added some orange solid cardstock, and the plaid and dot papers are from the 6x6 paper pad. I love using the smaller scale of the 6x6 pad for smaller card projects.
To make the front of the card I cut a piece of Ultra White Felt cardstock with one of the circles from the Stitched Circle Die Set. I added that to the plaid paper with some foam tape. I also used the Happy Easter Word Die set for the sentiment and cut it out of some bright pink and blue solid cardstock. I added a bunny, chick, grass and easter egg sticker from the Element Sticker sheet to the card with some foam tape. I added a blue chipboard flower to the I finished the card front off with a sheet yellow bow tied with a piece of green bakers twine and a pink flower button attached to the card with some glue dots.
On the bottom portion of the easel I added the cute "It's Easter Time Again" sticker to some foam tape. The foam tape is what the top portion of the card rests on to make it stand up so I used a good thick tape for this part. I then added a couple of chipboard flowers with yellow enamel dot centers to the card.
Here is another look at how the easel card looks - it will fold down flat for mailing if needed.
Isn't this such a fun line? I love the sweet icons and bright colors - I am excited to send this cute card to my Grandma who always invites my family over for a huge Easter Dinner - this will be a great way to say thank you to her. It would also make a fun Easter decoration as well if you don't decide to use it as a card. Thanks for stopping by today - see you all soon! Happy Crafting!
