Easel Card

The minute I saw this stamp set from Daisy Mae Designs I knew I wanted to created a special card with it. My husband parents own a caravan and it is his mums birthday coming up soon so I knew I wanted to use it for that. 

I wanted it to he something special though. This did not turn out how zi had planned, by original plan would not work but I quite like how it eventually turned out

There is a video on my YouTube Channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner

Cardmaking Tutorial

To begin with I stamped and coloured the image and fussy cut it out using my scan n cut leaving a white border.

The largest nesting oval die was used on the blue card and the next size down on the glitter card. These were glued together

I cut a strip.of blue card 2 1/2 Inch by 6 1/2 Inch and scored it at 2 and 4 1/2, both were folded as valleys

This was secured to the underside of the blue oval. The caravan was secured to the other end.

A lawn border was cut with the scan and cut and score at 1/4 Inch. This was glued into the middle of the oval to enable it to stand up.

The sentiment was heat embossed and cut using a small torn oval die. This was blended in worn lipstick and adhered to the glitter card in front of the lawn

The mum sentiment was heat embossed and cut with a heart die. This too was blended in worn lipstick. Using acetate this was stuck onto the back of the lawn. 

The banner die was used on the glitter card and this was glued above the caravan using acetate
