ID: MC Oct/15 - Easel - Parsley, Sage, Rosemary & Thyme card
size: 7"w x 5"h (easel closed)

Created: October 18, 2015

Elizabeth Craft Designs  (ECD) has been licensed to make dies of Suzanne Cannon's (Quietfire Design ) calligraphy.  Today's card uses "Thinking of You" (also available on Quietfire Design HERE)

("Parsley, Sage, Rosemary & Thyme" 8pce set); ("In A Perfect World" 4pce set);


Scored and folded my cream toned cardstock to create my easel. Cut a top layer from the cream.

Stamped the English cottage (Rick St Denis) using Versafine Black Onyx. Colored with Prisma colored pencils.

Cut a green textured layer with window panes. Adhered to front panel

Die cut the shutters (Memory Box "Madison Window Shutter Large") from Soft Finish cardstock and colored with Metallic Pan Pastels in a copper tone. Adhered to green layer.

Cut a narrow rectangle to act as a window ledge/shelf. Embossed with Elizabeth Craft Designs "Bark" embossing folder. Hit the high points with Distress "Old Paper" and sponged a bit of "Tea Dye" in the crevices. Adhered to window.

I had created eCuts for the jars (Heartfelt Creations "Jars & Vines") a while back and cut from Soft Finish cardstock, colored with various browns and yellow Pan Pastels. Adhered to shelf.

Created eCut silhouette images of the herbs and cut from white cardstock, stamped with Distress greens in the color closest to that herb. Adhered pleasingly in each jug.

Stamped the herb names using the black and added an ampersand with a black micron pen.

Stamped the words "Remember Me..." (Part of the Simon and Garfunkel song BIG GRIN)

On the floor: Die cut the "Thinking of You" from white cardstock, inked with Versafine Toffee and embossed with Hot Stuff "Burnt Copper Leaves" twice. Cut a rectangle piece the width of the card, scored it at 3/4" to adhere my die cut words, trimmed off the balance to about 1/4" deep and adhered to floor to act as my stopper.


Stamped the quote using the black and clear embossed. 

Adhered a piece of white ribbon using Sookwang tape.

Adhered the leftovers of my eCut/stamped herbs. Added some white pearl flourishes.
