Hello everyone!!!

I hope you all are geared up to enjoy your weekend!! I'm Anita here to make it more creative and fun filled for you. How about some card making ??? CottageCutz has some fabulous new releases and a huge range of dies to get you going. Have you got the Home Sweet Home new release. Do check it out to see how beautiful they are.

Today, I am sharing a Victorian style Easel card with you that has lots of layers and dimension.

I have some close ups to describe the details of the card.


The CottageCutz 3D flower# 4 have been coloured with Archival inks Chrome Yellow and Olive Green and then embossed and shaped. On the base of the card, arrange the die cuts from CottageCutz Lace Border, CottageCutz Butterfly and CottageCutz Large Flourish

 To make the side panel from CottageCutz Stitched Rectangle frame, place the smaller frame in the left hand corner instead of placing in the middle. This way you will get a wider frame base. I have used the  Cottagecutz Stitched Oval frameto make the framed lady.

Arrange the flowers and leaves using CottageCutz Garden Stems and CottageCutz Leaves and stems

 The Complete Card

To make the base of the card, cut a white card stock measuring 12 inches x 6 inches. Score at 6 inches on the longer side . Then further score at 9 inches. Fold like an easel.
I have used a shabby green pattern paper as my mat layer. The base mat layer measures 5.75 inches x5.75 inches and the card front mat layer measures 2.75 inches x 5.75 inches.

Add two lace border die cuts from  as shown on the base of the card.

Have you seen the current challenge at the CottageCutz blog??? It's all about Greenery!!! So do share your work to win some awesome prize.
