Thank you Floral shimmer 6" square easel card - Day 111 of my 366 day challenge


Thank you Floral shimmer 6" square easel card - 
Day 111 of my 366 day challenge

Hi Craft addicts!

I have once again chosen a flowery theme for today's challenge as it is such a lovely day outside! Spring really does seem to have arrived...

Thank you Floral shimmer 6" square easel card
This is a 6" white square card which I have made into an easel card by folding over the front part into itself and scored it to create a clean fold. I then scored the bottom half in 1/2" increments using a mini score board (from the inside so it was embossed  on the outside).

After that was done, I then coloured it using ink pads in pastel colours such as red, orange, green and purple. I really like working with the Generation InX as they blend well. Once that was done, I used a thin red liner tape at the top (near the score) and added some gold foil to it (I used the TODO version as it isn't just good for hot foiling).

I used the purple tulip style topper and the larger of the frames attached to it (from Hunkydory) to decorate the card and first of all turned the frame on it's side so it looked like a diamond and glued the bottom half of it to the scored card making sure that it was evenly spaced all round. I then added the topper on to it sticking it to the main card and also to the frame on the top part.

I had already coloured some card using the same inks and cut out a circle and stamped the sentiment "Thank you" using Black Versafine ink and Holographic embossing powder. I edged it in black using an alcohol marker and stuck it to the right hand corner using some foam pads.

For the inside of the card I used part of the cardstock to create a border at the place I wanted the card to stand up to (if that makes sense) and then then added the sentiment "Just for you" on top of it using some foam pads.

And there you are a quick and easy card that is fun to make!
