My First Easel Card!
Once a month, I get together with a group of friends, and we each design a card that the others get to make (like a make-n-take) and then go out to eat after. It is usually a thoroughly enjoyable day of stamping, and usually we try to come up with a challenge for our next gathering. Back when we got together in October, we went out to eat at a place called, "O'Charley's". The food was great, and so was the homemade bread that was served with our meal. Lining the bread basket was a piece of liner that we all thought would look great worked into a card, so we asked the manager if we could each have a piece, and he said sure. So to make a long story a little shorter, we used the paper as a challenge for our November get together. This is the card that I created using the liner paper copied on the copy machine at work on to 11 x 17 paper.
I thoroughly enjoyed the easel card concept, and plan to use this to make a few "Maggie" Christmas cards. Here is a close up of the card:
The image, "Oops Tilda" was colored with Copics, cut with my Nestabilities, and chalked with color before removing from the nestie. I also traced around the outer edge of the Nestabilitie on red cardstock and cut out and layered. The flowers are Prima, and punch is Martha Stewart. The charm and ribbon are from my stash. All of the images are from the "Yummy" collection. Here are the Copics used:
