A Step by Step

Hi Bloggers.

I have a pictorial tutorial today. I've used the Holly House All Dressed Up Cardmaking Kit and a piece of Coconut White Card.

Here's the finished card - an easel card.

I folded a piece of Coconut White Card in half. I used the largest die in the Spellbinders Flourished Frame Die Set to create the card blank.

I folded the front section of the card blank roughly in half. I cut some patterened paper using the same die and just trimmed a little off the end to fit the base of the card.

I cut the layers for the front of my card from the same die set as shown.

The sentiment is from the Creative Expressions Elegant Sentiments Stamp Set stamped uisng Jet Black Archival. Cut out using the same die set.

I made a couple of flowers using the Spellbinders Cinch & Go Die Set.

I added CS Glue and then CS Iced Snow Glitter Jewels.
The flourishes are from the Cinch & Go Set too.

I added a few 5mm White Pearls to finish the card.

    Really pretty card! I went through some of my stash yesterday and found some lovely toppers ( you forget what you have got!) I don't usually do easels cos people don't know how to stand them so I put a bit of instruction inside!
