Wearing Spring Easel Card

Hi everyone. Thanks for stopping by. It’s time for another DT challenge.

On to the DT challenge and the sponsor for trimmies CRAFT challenge #643 is The Paper Shelter (TPS). The theme this week is “easel card”. Each week we invite you to join us at Trimmies Craft Challenge going with the theme.

I absolutely love this digital image and I’ve requested it a few times but until now have not been lucky enough to have it chosen for the DT image to use!

I also chose to learn how to make a new type of easel card that I have never made before. This one like other easels folds flat, but the stopper is a 3D bar which you can see here:

I layered up some of the image and also used some of the 2nd image I printed to add extra elements to the bar and inside.

So here’s a summary of the materials used to make the card:

  • Digital image
  • Black doodle pen
  • High tack glue
  • Ruler
  • Score board
  • Guillotine
  • Card base – 300gsm

I hope that you feel inspired and it would be lovely to read you comments.

TTCRD anything goes challenge – 28th January 2020

Come and join us for the latest challenge from Through the craft room door (TTCRD) This time our sponsor this time is The Paper Shelter.

The images from The Paper Shelter are always ones that you can print and run with as they come with a background, coloured image layers or they come as a black and white line drawing which you can make your own. I’ve chosen to print this one off with the background and then two more layers so that I could decoupage some of the flowers and the VW camper van. It’s a cool fun summery image which was great to work with. I added the “don’t worry be happy” sentiment as I felt this summered up the care free summery attitude I saw in the image!

To frame this I have used one of the Clarity Stamps Doodleology Square frame stamps which I bought recently. I love them as they are quirky. The twisted strands in the frame stamp were coloured with Chameleon pens (RD2, GR1, GR2, YO3, OR3, NU1, NU4, YO2, PK2).

I’ve included this view so that you can see the decoupage in a little more detail!

I would like to enter this into the following challenge:
