My First Easel Card & Vintage Too

My first easel card…yeah for me. I came across a blog candy that I wanted to enter and I had just over an hour to make this card, take pics and post.

Okay….I got my card entered so now I can edit this posting.  The blog candy is on Angie’s page where you had to make an easel card using brown and red.I tried to get decent pics but I was having a hard time with this for some reason.Anyhoo, these are the pics I decided to upload.  You know how you take 20 pictures and then narrow it down to just one or two views, LOL, I so hope I’m not the only one that does that.

This card was made with the Stampin Up Winter Post stamp set; Stampin Up cardstock-choc chip, ruby red and very vanilla.  I used close to cocoa ink along with a little choc chip and old olive.  It was all basic cuts except for the MS punch for the leaves with the flower (they were colored with copic G99).  I then just rolled the edges a little bit to give it an old time look.  Last I added three Basic Grey opaline perles to hold the card up.  The flower was from my flower box so I have no idea where it’s from.

That’s it for my first easel card….boy was that quick!!!  I hope you enjoyed this post.  Let me know what you think of my first easel.  I’m definitely open to any and all suggestions.


I would like to add this card to Bunny Zoe”s challenge where this month it is vintage!
