ID: MC Aug 17 - Easel Lavender & Lace - ECD Happy Birthday - Always Believe card
size: 5"w x
7"h (card closed)

Created: August 5, 2017

At the last session with the gals another friend gave me the lavender themed napkin she brought back from her trip to Italy...

Suzanne asked us to use ribbon on cards... I'm using a Sari "Fairy" ribbon as a border - check out the ribbons section at

I'm using an A Way With Words dies "Calligraphic Elements 2 - Ampersand" &  "Happy Birthday from Elizabeth Craft Designs, also available on Quietfire Design HERE and  HERE

And I'm using a quote stamp set from Quietfire Design

("Always Believe...")


Scored and folded my white cardstock to create the easel. 

Cut another piece same size as card. Adhered a piece of lace to the center of the white cardstock. Die cut the lace border (Joanna Sheen "Isobel") from a pale lilac cardstock and sponged a bit of Distress "Tattered Rose" around the edges. Adhered to right hand edge.

With a wet paintbrush, worked around the images and then gently tore them away, then adhered them to the piece of white cardstock. Adhered the label and added a piece of real dusty rose narrow ribbon and tying a bow.

Electronically cut the "Lavender Lace" words using a brush text font and cutting from a deep purple cardstock. Used a white gel pen to add the doodle dots.

Die cut the "Ampersand" also from the deep purple cardstock.

Adhered the half pearls to the lace die cut using Glossy Accents.


On the Floor: Adhered another portion of the napkin to a piece of white cardstock. Trimmed down and adhered to floor. With the left over piece created a stopper for my front.

Stamped the quote using Versafine "Imperial Purple" and clear embossed on white cardstock. Die cut using Spellbinders Label 18. Sponged the edges with a dirty purple sponge. Adhered to stopper.

Adhered a piece of left over trim (negative piece...) from the lace border die cut to the bottom floor edge.

Adhered some Sari "Fairy" ribbon to either edge.

Die cut the "Happy Birthday" from DoCraft mirror cardstock in silver. Adhered to floor.
