ID: MC Nov/17 - Easel Owl - ECD Thank You - The Best Thing card
size: 5"w x 7" (easel closed)

Created: November 2, 2017

Loving my new Penny Black Stamps... 

I'm using an A Way With Words dies "Thank You" 2pce set  from Elizabeth Craft Designs, also available on Quietfire Design HERE

And I'm using one of the newest quote stamp (slightly altered...) from Quietfire Design.

("The Best Thing..."); ("I Don't Tell You Often Enough...." 5pce set)




Scored, folded my dark brown cardstock to create the easel. Cut another piece same size as card, outlined the edge with a Krylon gold leafing pen and adhered to front.

Inked my Penny Black "Poetic" using Distress mini pads and my Tim's Stamping Platform on 110# Arches HP watercolor paper. Since my Silhouette Cameo was under a pile of art supplies... I was too lazy to remove... I fussy cut around the leaves. Adhered to card front.

Die cut the "Thank You" from DoCrafts gold mirror cardstock, adhered to front. 

On the floor: Embossed the owl border on some more of the brown cardstock. Using my finger rubbed on some Prima Metallique wax "Vintage Gold" on the high points.

Stamped the quote using Versafine Toffee and embossed with Emerald Creek "Mirror Gold". The lettering didn't have enough contrast and luckily I was using my platform, so reinked using Distress Picket Fence over the embossed gold and embossed with white.

Inked the "You" with the picket fence and embossed with white embossing powder.

Adhered the dark brown/pink polka dotted ribbon on the left side.

Adhered the owl piece to floor with 3D foam tape to act as my stopper.

Stamped the quote using Distress Picket Fence and embossed with white embossing powder.
