Easel cards are so fun to do. Among various card styles, this is becoming to be my favorite. I thought of making a Cowboy style card in time for Father's day and this is how it turned out...This card has been entered into the following Challenges:
HOWDY DADDY EASEL CARD:
The A2 card has so much elements and texture that a guy can appreciate...The image is from High Hopes stamps and colored with Gamsol technique. I also did a lot of Cuttlebug embossing, stitching and inking. I used my Studio G and Recollection stamps to spell the sentiments by stamping each letter...It took me a while but sure love the result. I used Tim Holtz disress ink to get that vintage look on this card and it sure came out nice. I though some kind of metal may add masculinity to the card so, what can be better than adding some eyelets?
HOWDY DADDY EASEL CARD (INSIDE):
I love the space that is hidden inside the card to include a personal message. I feel like this type of card is something anyone would treasure.
HOWDY DADDY EASEL CARD (FOLDED):
Like this, it looks like a simple card but who would have thought that there's a lot more inside this card? That is why this card is a hit!
HOWDY DADDY EASEL CARD WITH ENVELOPE:
I made an envelope for this card that is 1/4 inch thick to accomodate the thickness of this card...Lots of cool things going on in this project that it deserves everything handmade...Anyway, gotta go and post more Father's Day cards...
