My First Easel Card!

Hello everyone! Another glorious day outside!! Abbie, my granddaughter and I decided to give Simba and Bailey a bath today! They look so pretty and better yet they smell good too!! I love Spring big time! Can you tell? LOL Today, I made my very first easel card. Omgosh, easy as 1-2-3! This is a website that has all kinds of tempt-plates  Here. with pictures and easy directions....I love it and easy peazy is for me!  I decided to do a celebration, dinner invitation and this was the perfect image for it! I am entering this card in a Copics face coloring challenge at Simple Scrapping Crafts here. Lisa Futch teaches the Copic Classes and she is an excellent teacher! If you have not been to Simple Crafting...you need to go! They have 25 challenges every month, lots of goodies, really super sweet members and you will think you died and went to Crafter's Heaven!!


 Meet Marti! Marti is part of the Hearts and Hugs Spring Collection made especially for Susana's Custom Card and Design here! Isn't she a baby doll? I love her and all the other stamps made for this collection! DP: Basic Grey/Nook and Pantry, Copics coloring, Nestability die. I am not sure where my sentiment stamp or flowers are from for they were in my stash! The sentiment reads: Let's Celebrate!! Here's who, what, where and when....! On the flat part of the Easel I have plain white card stock that I distress a little bit with pink ink. I left it blank so I could fill out the details at a later date! I added Diamond glaze to her eyes, dishes, pots and pans. And of course I had to add diamond stickles to her bow and chief's hat!
 
Thank you for looking and hope you enjoy this card as much as I had fun making it! See you tomorrow!

Trying again -- this time without all the typos! LOL!!

AWESOME card Colleen! I really love Easel Cards and they are quite popular now. I thought they would be really difficult to make, but once I figured them out, I was very pleased to find it was really FUN! Now I want to learn to make "Tent" cards.

Your cards are all wonderful and your coloring is also fantastic! Congratulations!
