How on the ball am I? I actually have my Stamp Club cards planned and posted more than a week ahead of time!
I've been wanting to try an easel card for quite some time, so I figured I'd better just do it! I started with Bella Bleu designer series paper and went from there. It turned into a soft, semi-masculine card since I used the paper with Close to Cocoa in it! I stamped the tree from Pendant Park in Close to Cocoa ink on the Bella Bleu paper and layered it on some Very Vanilla. Then I used my mat pack and paper piercer and Close to Cocoa Stampin' Write marker to add some faux stitching around that piece. For the base piece, I added a strip of dsp to a Close to Cocoa piece that I had punched with the Scallop Trim Border punch. A Very Vanilla taffeta bow completes that piece.here.
The tulips are made from the wing of the Extra Large Two-Step Bird punch. I used Pretty in Pink, Lavender Lace and Barely Banana for the flowers and Certainly Celery for the stems. The greeting is from Thank You Kindly, stamped in Lavender Lace.
Thanks for stopping in today!
Blessings to you,
