Easel Card

Little Miss Muffet time and the challenge this fortnight is a real easy peasy one we want to see an Easel or Step Shaped Cards … see said it was easy.

My easel card has a little twist because the top half opens and becomes a gatefold.
To keep the gatefold closed I have added little magnet discs underneath the papers.

Haven’t finished embellishing the inside because this has been made with a wonderful persons birthday in mind and I want to add some personnel sentiments later. Used Basic Grey papers called Eva and fussy cut the peacock because I thought it looked so pretty. Made one of my concertina butterflies … still addicted to these but have to sit on my hands otherwise they would be on every card πŸ˜† stamped a butterfly image behind this time that way I didn’t have to add any antennas myself. If you look on the left hand side of my side bar you can find the details of the butterfly there.

Used another of my fave images called … La Jeune Fille Γ  l’eventail … bit of a mouthful, think it’s her name and something to do with a fan … eh don’t quote me though. Coloured with Copics, Pro Markers and a bit of water colouring … think you know me by now I throw just about everything at it.

    This is so pretty Shirley! Lovely embellishments! What a great idea to use magnets to keep the gate fold closed! Where have you hidden them?
