Its time for another challenge at Celebrate the Occasion. This week's theme is Birthday Easel Card. If you haven't tried one before, this is the perfect time. I just love how easy they are to make and there are many U-Tube videos on how to make Easel Cards. I really like this one (Click HERE) by Split Coast Stampers. It is very easy to follow and you can really see how easy the technique is.
The other tutorial I used in making this card was a mini rose tutorial. I found the tutorial by Croping Queen (sorry she does not have a blog) for these roses, you can use any five petal flower. You can use a paper punch or your Cricut to create them. The best flower to use is the flower on Weddings Solution Cartridge because it is perfectly symmetrical but that is not totally neccessary. (Click HERE
for tutorial). The leaves I just cut out by hand and added the details.
