Mother's Day Easel Card

Hi everyone! Angji Pruente aka dicegrrl here as today's guest Gyptian. I'm so excited to be on my first design team! Here's hoping I don't underwhelm you all with my offering. *smile*

I am in love with easel cards at the moment. You get such a WOW factor for so little effort. Plus it's nice for the recipient to be able to display their card easily. This is my Mother's Day card for my mother. She loves purple, bling and displaying my cards. So the easel card is a perfect fit. Without further ado, here's my card.





A few close ups as well, can you tell I love stickles? *wink*








So, what do you think? Will my Mom like it? I think she will. At least she better after I worked on it for so long! :)

Here are the details:

Cartridges used:

Walk In My Garden-Square @ 5.75, Circle @ 4, Flower Pot @ 4x5, Roses @ 2.5, Leaves @ 1.0
Mother's Day 2010-Happy Mother's Day @ 3
Home Accents-Flourish @ 2


Here is how I laid it out on my 12x24 mat.






A few notes on my project:

If you will notice, I flipped the pot on the card and welded the bottom of the pot to the top of the card. I did this so that when the card was being displayed that the front and the back will match up. I cut off the excess with my craft knife. I hung the circle off of the mat so I could place the flowers without the pot in my way.

Second, I welded the flourish to the flower pot and used the positive cut as accents to the Happy Mother's Day cut. I cut the flourish into three pieces.

Third, I cut the leaves in half and drew veins on them with my Versamark pen. Then after attaching them I gently curved the leaves out for dimension.


Supplies used:

Cardstock-SU! Elegant Eggplant, Pale Plum, Handsome Hunter
Ink: Milled Lavender Distress Ink
Misc: ATG gun, Scrappy glue, foam tape, lavender skittles, SU! Scallop Lace border punch, Lavender and Diamond Stickles
My E and G!


I hope you enjoyed my project today! I really enjoyed designing and making it. Thank you Pam for letting me play on your blog today!

Hugs,

~Angji

Beautiful card. The colors are so rich and of course it wouldn't be the same without the bling!
