My First Easel Card
It's my friend Alice's birthday at the weekend and I have just finished her card. Knew that I wanted to make an easel card, but just couldnt decide what to put on it. My problem is that decoupage is the first thing that comes to me when making a card and I wanted to do something different. Ok it has decoupage on the front - so that was the easy bit. Hope she'll like it. Used Sharon Duncan's embossibilites CD for the background. Just love these backing papers. The rubber stamp was a one from a selection from Stampin Up and also used my SU punches. Ribbon and flowers from my stash.
I am 55 years old and have been crafting for as long as I can remember, in fact started knitting when I was just 5. I have attempted various crafts over the years which have included knitting, cross stitch, ceramics and now mainly card making. My favourite being decoupage as I find it most relaxing when I'm cutting out. Like most crafters have lots of stuff and could be doing with a massive room to keep it in. I am also a big F1 fan and love to watch it on a Sunday. I try to do some crafting each day but dont always manage it. I have two nieces and three great nephews and I love them all to bits. I married my Douglas in Las Vegas in 2010 and am looking forward to spending the rest of my life with him.
