Easel Card

Hello my new look? Needed a change so let me know what you think! So I went to this really cool StampinUp! event yesterday (thank you mom and Jess for watching the monsters so I could go!) We did 6 really nice projects and thought I would some with you. I haven't been doing classes lately as it's been crazy, but I will be doing a class in May and will be incorporating some of the projects from this some will be a secret!
Today I am sharing what is called an easel card. Funny I had never heard of this card before yesterday and since then I checked out a couple fellow stampers blogs and low and behold, they're all easel crazy! The stamp set used is the Vintage Vogue (pg 26 of the Occaiosions Mini) which at first glance I was not crazy about! But I now love it (as this is usually what ends up happening). Colours for ink are bordering blue, and night of navy. We used the rock and roll technique to achieve the 2 colours on the flower. Paper is naturals ivory, kraft, not quite navy, vanilla, close to cocoa and bella bleu DSP. Accessories used are versamark, the scallop trim border punch (Sale-a-bration free item with $65.00 purchase!) kraft taffeta ribbon, not quite navy brads, trio flower punch, and modern label and word window punch. Now I can't promise but I'm pretty sure my clubbers are going to like this card and I think they'll be seeing one similar for our May project..maybe..we'll have to see! Thanks for stopping by!
