Hello my blogging friends! It's time for a new challenge over at Creative Inspirations and this week we want to see some Easel Cards! We all love to make them and it seems someone is always coming up with some new and exciting twist on them, so let's see what you got! Here's what I've come up with...
I wanted you to see it closed so you could see it is completely caked...so to speak, lol. The papers are from a Martha Stewart stack and they were actually one of the hardest parts of making this cake. I knew some of the colors I wanted to work with...to get into some challenges, but it took a little time to get there. I cut the begining cake shape with my cricut Sweet Treats cart. and then traced it to make my easel form. I also cut all the layers from the original starting shape so I could make them individually.
Here's a close-up of this adorable Tilda. I cut these balloons with my Once upon a Princess cart. onto my x-press it blending card and then colored them with copics to match. I tried to bend them a little bit to add some more dimension(see photo below) and then attached them with hot glue.

Well, I think that about does it for my card today. I hope you enjoyed my creation....I actually had something a little more elaborate in mind so I'm going to keep working on this idea. Thanks for stopping by and make sure you check out what the rest of the DT has come up with. Oops, forgot to mention our fantastic sponsors this week which are Simon Says Stamps witha a $10 voucher to their store and Bunny Zoe crafts also with a 10 voucher to spend in her store.
