I bought paper last week, and I wondered what I would make with it. I really love the old fashioned look. Well, after thinking about it, I came up with this Easel Card. I made it into a birthday card - my favorite card to make, next to Christmas. I love the 6x6 format and I saw an Easel Card that Becca made and displayed on her blog: http://www.amazingpapergrace.com/
This is what I used....The envelope is made from CCWV - classic Red Checks. I have a template for the 6x6 envelopes (Kreate-A-Lope, by http://www.greensneakers.com/ ) I think making an envelope to match your card makes the card that much more special. It's like adding wrapping paper to your gift.
The easel is made from a red linen card stock, and I also used a scrap of brown linen to make mattes for the front and inside. The front graphic is from Graphic45 - the Domestic Goddess line. The floral designed card stock is the back side of the graphic I used for the front. The silverware brad is by Creative Imaginations - Christine Adolph. When I bought them, I wondered what I would do with them.....they were perfect! Of course I used Spellbinders Rectangles for the matte on the sentiment. I'm beginning to think I can't make a card without adding something from Spellbinder. I did a free hand for my hand written note. And the sentiment was created on my computer.
Can you believe the card folds flat and fits into a 6x6 envelope? It was an easy card to make and I think it is beautiful.!
That's it for today. Tomorrow I'll be creating with my SOS group. It will be fun to see what everyone is working on.
Have a wonderful day.
