Saturday 30 May 2015


   This easel card was made using one of the decoupage House Mouse sheets from Joanna Sheen.
I matted brown core'dinations cardstock on both the front and base of the easel card, having wrapped ribbon round the lower edge of the former. I matted the decoupaged piece onto cream core'dinations cardstock before fixing to the card and then finished the front by attaching a bow to the ribbon.

   The stop for the easel was made from die cuts.  Using light blue card I cut the basket using the Tattered Lace die 'basket full of goodness' and backed it with dark blue card. I then cut five ovals from core'dination cardstock using a die. I embossed them using the Emma folder from Tattered Lace's trio set. Having trimmed them a little I shaded the edges using distress ink. I then slightly curved the basket and glued it using gel to the base and after  shaping the 'nuts' I positioned them in the basket also fixing them using glue gel.
   I matted the sentiment onto core'dinations cardstock and attached this to the corner of the base.
