ID: MC Sept/15 - Easel - ECD Hello - The Heart Has Its Reasons -  card
size: 5.5"w x 4.25"h (card closed)

Created: September 28, 2015

I'm using one of the newest dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs   (ECD)  "Hello" die also available through  Quietfire Design  HERE and an embossing folder "Bark" and the " Bunch Of Flowers 4 "", "Leafy Branch " & "Dragonfly" dies and " Soft Finish" cardstock.

And the Quietfire Design quote stamp  on the floor.

("The Heart Has Its Reasons"); 


Scored and folded my cream toned cardstock to create the easel. Cut another piece of cream cardstock for the front. Embossed and sponged using Distress "Old Paper" heavily all over, then lightly with "Tea Dye", then hit the high points direct to paper using "Ground Espresso". Adhered to easel front.

Die cut my various floral pieces using the soft finish cardstock, smooth for the leaves and textured for the flowers. The leaves were hit with "Mowed Lawn", the flowers colored with Pan Pastels, then tooled using a large balled stylus on a fun foam mat.

"Hello" was die cut from the cream cardstock, edges hit with an orange Prisma Premier marker and then the word inked with Versamark and clear embossed using UTEE.

Dragonfly die cut from the cream cardstock, filigree piece inked with a brown and embossed with "Midnight Gold Obsidian" embossing powder. Applied glue to the solid piece for the body, adhered the filigree piece and then sprinkled with copper glitter. Applied glue to the solid piece for the wings, adhered the filigree piece and sprinkled with Diamond glitter. Adhered dragonfly to card front using 3D foam tape.

On the floor, Stamped the quote using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Applied Quickie glue to the heart and sprinkled with the Diamond glitter. 

Adhered a flower to act as a stopper. Added the 3 green pearls on the left side to aid as a stopper.

Final touch added the pink toned glitter pearls to the flower centers.
