MC Oct/15 - Side Easel - ECD Happy Birthday - Sometimes Said Pooh making easels and side easel cards... I think this "Sea Glass" embossing folder from Elizabeth Craft Designs is one of my favorite folders... Love the different looks you can get with it. And using one of my Color Burst backgrounds I made a while back for the die cut words "Happy Birthday" (also available on Quietfire Design HERE).

At our quilling session, one of the ladies brought in a bunch of old encyclopedia set that had a gilded to edge which we all covet... I used all the pages from one book already, so had all these pages just sitting around. Thought I'd start using them too... Cut the "Big Flower Set 1" from Elizabeth Craft Designs, assembled it and scrunched it by hand. Then used Els "Poinsettia" die set for the leaves. A few flourishes from the "Flourishes & Branches" set.

I'm using a quote stamp on the floor by Quietfire Design.

I know you are going to roll your eyes but I have never seen an easel card before.. And let me tell you I am very impressed. This card is so well done right down to your detailed sentiment. The embossed texture is so beautiful and your embellishments are so shabby chic.. I love it.. thank you so much for joining us at BSCB.
