Easel Card

Happy Tuesday! 

How has everyone been? I have been super busy. Hard to find time to create. 

It is easel card time. I forget how much I like to make easel cards.  They are super easy and the end result is beautiful. 

I used this template: at Splitcoast stampers

I made this card for a girlfriend who's birthday is coming up.... she loves purple. It just ended up being monochromatic. 

I used a technique that I have not tried in a while. I stamped and embossed clear over a pattern paper and then using distress ink, rubbed over the image.... and like magic, it pops out!

Solid Paper: Archivers
Pattern Paper: Papertrey Ink
Ink: Distress Ink-dusty concord
Die Cuts/Folders: Martha Stewart Edge and Sizzix Embossing folder (perfectly paisley)
Stamps: Inkadinkado-bird, SU-sentiment
Other: twine, gems, Copics and clear embossing powder

We'd love for you to play along at The Cuttlebug Spot.
