Crafts 4 Eternity - Easel card

We've got a nice simple challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity for you this week. Make an easel card. Everyone likes making those don't they?!

My card doesn't look so great in these photos. It's very simple in it's design. I used Stempleglede stamps from Quixotic Paperie. They are just stunning, but this is my first real attempt at 'grunge' & I'm not sure I've mastered it yet, in fact I know I haven't. My heart will always be in cute, but this card was for my Mum & she's not that keen on cute!

I used Memory Box - Gossamer papers & the stamping was done with Aged Mahogany Distress Ink with Perfect Pearls in Heirloom Gold dusted over the top. I 3D'd the image for extra interest. Other than that there is not much to say really.

Now it's time to pop over to the Crafts 4 Eternity website, where we are thrilled to have a new sponsor. This week's lucky winner will receive a $10 voucher to spend on the fabulous digis at Deedee's Designs.

My! I'm somewhat late with this post, but it's my birthday today & I've been out most of the time. I did not realise I would not be sitting down at my laptop until just now! Thanks so much to you all for looking & have a great weekend.

Big Hugs,
Andie xx

Happy Birthday!!

I think it looks great, I am a big fan of the grunge as I often distress with ink (I am not so good with the cute haha) and tear and sand :)

Beautiful and simple! Two of my favorite things!

Welcome to SCSC, we are so pleased you could join us! I am looking forward to working with you on the team.
