Jayden With Butterfly Shaped Easel

Today, I bring you my first shaped easel card. The image I've used is 'Jayden With Butterfly' from Sew Many Cards.

I made this card by first cutting a circle card base with my Wild Card cart. and my cricut. Next I cut two flower shapes with the Accent Essentials. I used one flower for the top and placed the second on the bottom inside of the card. After getting this all adheared together I cut a circle and centered it on the flower.

After adding Jayden I added the flowers from my stash and adheared them with hot glue. I felt it still needed a bit more and after some thinking I came up with the buttons and glued them around the outside of the inner circle.

A little sentiment on the front of the card, a space for writing on the inside, a button to hold the easel shape and done!
