ID: MC Oct/12 - Gelatos - We Do Not Remember card (easel)
size: 6.5"square (on it's side) or 8.5"sq. point to point

Created: Oct 6, 2012

I love this new set of dies I got from Spellbinders "Resplendent Rectangles", really a nice set.

I'm using a sentiment stamp from Quietfire Design

I stamped a piece of white cardstock (Impression Obsession CAC "Giraffe"), coloring the stamp with Gelatos in ochre, orange, red, brown, and touches of black, misted with water and stamped. Made a 2nd generation stamping misting the stamp with a bit more water.

Used the 1st generation stamping & die cut with the Spellbinder's die set. Also cut the butterscotch cardstock with one of the dies. Edged the first two die cuts with Distress Brushed Corduroy. Stamped half the sentiment using Versafine Vintage Sepia and touching with black, clear embossing.

Created the background for the easel card using the 1st generation of the background stamping. Adhered my die cut rectangles to my background.

Die cut the swirly tree (Memory Box "Swirly Tree") from brown cardstock. The leaves (Die-Namics "Royal Leaves") were die cut from some decorative paper on my desk. Adhered them to the card, adhering some of the leaves to overlap the tree swirls for strength.

Cut a piece of white cardstock the same size as the easel floor to make a pocket to slip my easel tip in to. Stamped (Stampin Up "Hello Doily") with perfect Medium and clear embossed. Sponged Distress Scattered Straw, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, Crushed Olive, touching the edges with Walnut Stain. Ironed off the embossing between clean newsprint. Stamped the 2nd half of the saying and clear embossed. Adhered a couple leaves.
