ID: DT Jan/15 - Easel Love - Words of Love - HB card
size: 7"w (incl ribbon) x 5"h (card closed)

Created: January 3, 2015

It's that time again for lots of birthdays and Valentine's Day... This one probably for my aunt.

I'm using the large Flourish stamp, one of the Plain & Simple Birthday sentiments & the quote stamp from Quietfire Design as well as one of Suzanne's eCuts available on the Silhouette online store.

("Flourishes" 5pce set); ("Happy Birthday - Plain & Simple"7pce set); ("Words of Love..."); eCut "Love with a Flourish"


I die cut the largest of the Spellbinders "Labels 42 Decorative Accents" frame from white cardstock, sponged through the die using a dirty pink sponge. Stamped the largest flourish (Quietfire Design) using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed.

Used the negative of the die cut to scan and then cut a shadow layer using my electronic cutter. Hit the edges with Versafine "Toffee" and embossed with Queen's Gold embossing powder. Adhered both layers together with 3D foam tape.

Used the same scanned image to create my easel card, welding 2 frames together, selecting all, and increasing the size to 10"high so I would end up with a 5"h card. Scored and folded the easel and adhered the decorative layer.

eCut the word "Love" as well as a shadow layer from white cardstock, inked the first layer with the Toffee and embossed with the gold. Hit the shadow layer with Distress "Picked Raspberry", then with Versamark, then adhering the first layer to the shadow layer as quickly as possible so the shadow layer was still wet enough to clear emboss. adhered to card front.

Tied a double peg bow from 1.5"w Fuchsia gauze ribbon. adhered to card with a glue gun. Used a small left over piece to adhere under the "e" on the right side.

Die cut the 2 smaller hearts (Spellbinders "Nested Hearts")  from white cardstock, sponged edges with Picked Raspberry and clear embossed. adhered one to the other and then added a small flap on the back to create my stopper for the easel.

Cut the birthday sentiment in half and stamped using the black.

Stamped the quote using the black and clear embossed.

Added a mauve heart button tied with some fuchsia string and adhered using the glue gun. added some white pearl flourishes.
