Easel Card Twist at Crafty Catz

Good Morning my Crafty Friends, Blogging Buddies and Followers. I can't believe that's us in the last month of the year, gosh, 2016 has flown by. It will soon be the festive season upon us, thankfully I have started a bit of my present buying...and have a few cards made too, at least it's a start!

So it's Friday again, and that means it's challenge time over at Crafty Catz. Our theme as always is 'Anything Goes' but we have a twist and this week it's 'Easel Cards'. Sponsoring us is Melon Headz, who are offering 1 Bundle of choice for the Winner. The DT this week,  could work with any of our own images, so I chose to use this gorgeous image by Julia SpiriSnow Queen and here is what I have created using our twist theme...

Using 2 8x8 blue card blanks, I created this easel card. One for the card itself and the other to use for coordinating die cut toppers. I matt and layered silver glitter card with Forever Friends backing papers, twice, for both front and base, adding ribbon borders. For the main, I made topper of blue card and watercolour card along with image that I printed, coloured and die cut out. I placed as shown, adding silver snowflake die cuts with gems, poinsettia flower, leaves and ribbon bow to decorate. For the base I repeated the matt and layer, then added topper of poinsettia flower and sentiment.
