My First Easel Card!

Yup! Very first and a very rough card too!

There are many mistakes in this card but I thought I’d continue working otherwise I will never try an Easel card again… and I tell you one thing… those of you who still have not tried this out, SHOULD! It is so easy! I think I will be making a lot of these!

Okay don't be harsh and don't judge, this is just a rough card… and again a cell phone picture.



The tree is an internet download, shaded the scenery on Photoshop. I have applied white glitter at the bottom (snow). The tree goes from grey glitter to silver… have used embossing paste to draw the outline and branches of the tree… The scalloped oval shape is hand drawn and the sentiment is hand written. The sentiment is not that clear in the picture but it is quite readable otherwise.

I will make a better version of this card soon. Just was in a hurry to post my first easel card!


Challenges: Delightful Challenges (glitter it up), Whoopsi daisy (Christmas), ABC challenge (Holidays), ABC Christmas challenge (winter wonderland), creative cottage (someone special at Christmas)
