I made these easel cards recently. What I mean to say is I started them several weeks ago and just got around to finishing them off. I was following the directions provided in the infamous Dream in Color kit. The easel they teach fits into an A2 envelope, which is what I prefer to make.
It was just a happy accident that it worked out that way. Not wanting to distract much from the surreal background I just added a greeting, some punch art, and a metallic purple butterfly. It was impossible to photograph without glare.
I tossed that aside with the card with too long of a back to be fixed right on another day. For whatever reason, I decided I would try a third easel. The third time is a charm, right?
I finished it off this past weekend with the others. I used the dream word collage pieces for the edges and the same greeting as the previous card. I used paper flowers for embellishments because the card needed something and it needed something that wasn't too weird.
The Fine Print: Stamps, papers, card bases and card toppers by Club Scrap "Dream in Color." Paper flowers, metallic butterfly, sequins, and punched flowers from my stash. So glad to have mastered the A2 easel!
