An easel card for summer

The challenge at Trimgym and CRAFT Challenge was a summer theme:

Jo at Trimgym had provided an easel pack to use.  I haven't had much success in creating easel cards and nearly wimped out on this one.  I'm pleased I didn't because this one actually worked!

I have taken the lower piece from a different angle so you can see the sentiment:

The piece that the sentiment is mounted on was meant to be on the flower at the top.  I hope Jo doesn't mind that I changed things around a bit!

I have used the easel card pack provided with the challenge by Trimgym's digi stamps.  I have also used one of the digi images and sentiments from Trimgym.

The image has been coloured using copics and I have also edged all the layers of the easel pack with Copic 100 (black).

I am pleased that this card actually stood up as I attended some classes last weekend at a papercraft expo and my easel cards were reluctant to stand up!  It was an extremely tiring three days but I came away with some new skills which I can hopefully put to good use.

  1. Hi Suze,

    This one looks great again. Love how you used the heart of the flower for the sentiment and to keep the easel card in place. Hope you have enjoyed it. I guess I ought to put a different easel card sheet up as freebie at some time, lol.

    Looks like you were the only entry once again. Must think of something to get more people involved. I will soon run out of new things for you to choose from, lol. Have you chosen your last prize yet?

    Love,

    Jo.
