Celebrate the Occasion Challenge #26: Birthday Easel Card

Hello everyone,

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.



I will also be linking this card to:
Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #73 : A Piece of Cake

What was used:
Cricut Elegant Edges (Bracket frame)
EK Success Retro Flower Paper Punch (5 punch for each rose)
My Pink Stamper Everyday Life Stamp set
Martha Stewart Vintage Girl Paper Pack
Martha Stewart Modern Festive Paper Pack
Martha Stewart Modern Festive Chipboard Cupcake
Recollection Cardstock
American Crafts Stamp Marker: Cricket
Divine Twine Green Apple
Colorbox Cat's eye Chalk Inks
Bling from stash

I hope you will visit Celebrate the Occasion and see the beautiful Easel Cards DT2 have made to inspire you. Remember there is a chance to be entered into our August drawing for a $25 Paper Trey Ink gift certificate.

Happy Scrapping!
Judy
