Easel Card With a Twist
I have not fallen off the face of the planet. I have been just so busy I totally forgot to post last week. Sorry.
This week over at Inspired Stamps we were asked to do a easel card with a scripture focus. I took this as a challenge and decided to find a variation of the easel card that would WOW everyone, (sort of an atonement for forgetting to post last week.) In my search I came across the Card Making Magic site that had several variations of easel cards. I used this site as inspiration for my card this week. to create a triple easel card with a twist, Card Making Magic site directions can be found here. I tweaked my design to use a 8-1/2 x 6 sheet of cardstock, folded to create a 3"x8-1/2" card.
Here is my card with the easel's set up. I used Inspired Stampers Favorites Collection #2, and More Perfect Sentiments. The center easel is a 3x3 with the 2 outside twisted easel's being 2-3/4x3.
Here is the card folded down so it can fit into an envelope.
Materials Used: Inspired Stamper's Favorites Collection #2, More Perfect Sentiments
CTMH materials used: Magnifique B&T, White Daisy, Ocean cardstock, Ocean, Pacifica, Black ink, Art Philosophy cricut Cart, Rhinestones, Prisma Glitter
Silver cardstock from Pizzaz.
Now as an added bonus I will show you the projects I had for last week's designer's choice artwork. These were completed in plenty of time, they just never made it from the camera to the Internet until today.
First I have a companion page for the Army scrapbook page I created a couple of week's ago.
This page features the adorable HLO-Soldier with Flag. The page shows my son and 3 of his classmates who had joined the Army before they graduated. Their recruiter had got each of the boys an Army tassel to wear during graduation and I had orders from him that I was to get a picture of the 4 of them wearing the tassels after the graduation ceremony.
Materials Used: HLO-Soldier with Flag
CTMH Used: Black Ink, White Daisy, black and Olive, Vanilla Cream, Chocolate, Bamboo, Desert Sand Cardstock, Chocolate & Dark Green Markers, Red & Blue Colored Pencils
Army Paper From Reminisce,
Doodletype cricut cartridge
The other story behind this page is that our high school was honoring all the students who had earned "scholarships", when the boys went up during practice to let the school officials know about their scholarships, they were told that the school would not recognize the military boys just those going on to College. Needless to say the boys were disappointed. Well 2 mom's complained to the school. That night during the ceremony after they had recognized the college kids, (who got a decent applause for their achievement's), they announced the 5 boys who had committed to the Military. I was proud when the called my son's name, but I lost it when the boys got a standing ovation not only from the crowd but from their classmates also.
Here are the two pages together
Then my other project for last week was the table favors/balloon anchors for Jimmy's graduation party.
These boxes were stamped using the Military Stamp set, along with the star from New Blessed Little Christmas. The boxes have a baby picture on one side and a Sr. Picture on the other.
