Easel Does it…!

Our sponsor this week was Sami Stamps (excuse me, while I do my happy dance!).  I chose Dad’s Side Kick for my card as I couldn’t wait to pop this little fella on his own skyline!

I toyed with the idea of getting all creative and trying a twisted easel card, but time was against me a little this week, so I played it safe and just made a straight easel card.  Looking at how my card turned out, I’m not sure it would have worked as a twisted easel anyway, so it’s all good!

I coloured Dad’s Side Kick in with ProMarkers, after printing and cutting the image on the Silhouette.  The background papers are both from White Fox Graphics on Etsy; I used the trace option in the Silhouette software to allow me to cut out the skyline so the cloudy sky could show through.

The sentiment was simply printed directly onto the card, and clear embossed.  I’ve popped it on some 3D tape to allow it to act as the stopper for the card too.  The contrasting green ribbon at the bottom is by American Crafts.

Easel cards make a great change – both to make and to receive!  I used to be a little wary as I thought they would be complicated, but a quick Google search later proved me wrong!  Have a go, I bet you’ll be glad you did!
