Well I finally got around to trying a new type of card...I'm always wanting to try something new, but somehow never get around to it! For all of you experienced card makers out there, this will seem a little silly to you! I was ordering a new background stamp from Just Rite Stamps when I saw their Friday challenge to make an easel card. The only hitch...you had to use one of their stamps. Well right now I only own one of their stamp sets..."Celebration Labels One & Bracket Borders One". That's when I decided come hell or high water, I was going to make an easel card using that stamp set!! So here is what I came up with...it took me about six hours...going back and forth about what papers, colors, etc. to use...but I thought it turned out pretty good!! All the papers are from my stash as well as the bow. Going from the back forward, here are the layers. The large ivory die cut in the back is Spellbinder's Decorative Labels One. I used the Celebration Labels One stamp with Memento's "Bamboo Leaves" ink on it. The rust colored paper was cut out with Spellbinder's Labels Twenty Two. Next is a smaller Decorative Labels One die cut in ivory, stamped with the Just Rite Labels One sentiment in Memento's Rich Cocoa. The "Celebrate" sentiment is from the same set, also stamped with Rich Cocoa. The leaves were cut with My Creative Time's Piles of Smiles set, and I chalked the edges with brown chalk. Here are pictures of my card showing the front, side, and inside. Thanks for stopping by to take a peek!!
