April Card Club Feature: Easel Card

Each month when the 1st Wednesday card club meets we make two cards, and sometimes more.  Sometimes we have a technique added to our line-up.  Today, we made this adorable, fun and easy to recreate easel card!

The easel card folds flat… perfect for mailing, and an unexpected surprise for the recipient too!

I’m really enjoying the versatility of my Herb Expressions stamp set!  It’s perfect for scrapbooking, making cards, home decor, and coasters too!  It’s the only stamp set used to make this card… greetings and images are all included in one package!

After coloring the flower with an Aqua Painter, we added dazzling diamonds to the blooms with a 2-way glue pen to soften the coloring of the blooms.. and make them sparkle too!

I’m forming a new evening monthly card club… if you’re interested, please contact me (use the tab at the top of my blog.)  Club members take turns being hostess, and share all the same benefits as an in-home demonstration workshop hostess!
