ID: MC Sept/17 - Easel Lustrous - ECD Happy Birthday Small - Don't Wait For Someone card
size: 5"w x 7 (easel closed)

Created: September 7, 2017

I acquired a bunch of new stuff BIG GRIN especially some Penny Black stamps and while entering the images into my database, I also stamped them onto Arches 90# hot Press watercolor paper. I'm using the "Lustrous" stamp on this card.

I'm using one of the newest an A Way With Words dies "Happy Birthday Small"  from Elizabeth Craft Designs, also available on Quietfire Design HERE

As well as a quote stamp and design element stamps from the "Where Flowers Bloom Collection" 11pce clear stamp set from Elizabeth Craft Designs also available on Quietfire Design HERE



Scored, folded my dark green textured cardstock to create the easel.

I've had this Heart Felt Creations "Decorative Window Scene" die for eons. (Mar 2011...) and used it maybe twice... it just never fit what I was wanting to do, and then I got the thinking - a dangerous thing... I cut a bunch of them out from the green cardstock and cut sections of it apart and then pieced it back together in the size and configuration I wanted. Voila...

Trimmed down my image to fit under the frame assembly and adhered together, then adhered to card front.

Stamped the quote using Versafine "Olympia Green" and clear embossed.

Added medium sized white half pearls.



On the floor: I had this drop out piece in my stash (can't remember what die it was from...). sponged some of the "Worn Lipstick" around the edges. 

Stamped the flower sprigs with Distress Oxides. Tied a narrow ribbon burgundy/gold bow and adhered to sprigs. 

Die cut the Happy Birthday from a gold mirror cardstock from DoCrafts. 

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