I die cut two of the largest hearts (Spellbinders "Classic Hearts"), embossed them and sponged with color (Distress "Picked Raspberry" & some "Walnut Stain"). Adhered them together, then used them to cut my easel card base.

Covered the back and the floor with a pink toned moiré scrapbook paper.


Created a stamp silhouette image (HOTP "Fresh Cuts" set) and cut with my electronic cutter, then stamped with Versafine Black Onyx, painted with US ArtQuest Pastelle Mica Color palette. Adhered one to the front and one to the floor to act as my stopper.
I had the extra stamped heart (Quietfire Design) from a previous project. eCut with my electronic cutter, stamped with the black and colored with Prisma colored pencils.
card closed
Stamped the sentiments (Quietfire Design) with the black. Added some Wink of Stella gold in the small heart.

As a final touch added the heart & mini pearl stickers.

This is very clever easel card, I like the different shape of it. Not the shape that most cards would be so it is nice, I like getting something different that no one else would get.

What a lovely easel card. I love the colors and the little butterfly. TFS.

seau said...

Opps I'm sorry I really thought there was a butterfly on your card. The two flowers are stunning and I guess the bottom of the card reminded me of a butterfly.
