Once I discovered how EASY it was to create an EASEL card, I can't stop making them. They are one of my go-to card designs. So, to make it EASY for you, too, I have included at the end of this blog post what I like to call "IKEA directions"--in other words, a tutorial almost entirely made up of pictures instead of words.
First, let's introduce you to this month's guest sponsor, Scribbles Designs:
"Looking for a unique image or sentiment? Well then! Head on over to Scribbles Designs and check out Sandy's world of her funky imagination and quirky characters. Sandy has loved art, drawing, water coloring and doodling for many years... and with the digital image world she can now share it with all of you. Brrr (Penguin) was her first main character and her other quirky images followed not long after. We hope you enjoy the endearing images available in the store and add Sandy's images to your digital stamp collections.
Scribbles Designs gave the DT some very cute images to play with. Virginia, last month's challenge winner, got to play with "Tropical Fish 2." She printed the image three times in two different sizes to give her easel card lots of dimension. Love her seaweed.
I used "Carl’s Pad" on my easel card, fussy-cutting the image and letting just the very tip of the top of my image overrun the bottom of my card face. I bought the sentiment "My Pad" from Scribbles Designs and cut it in two parts. Here's my card (kind of) closed:
This new challenge runs from May 1st until May 14th.
One random participant will win three digital images of their choice from Scribbles Designs.
And now, as promised, here's my "Ikea" tutorial for an easel card:
Come back tomorrow when we announce the winner of our April 15 Build-a-Sketch challenge.
