Christmas Card Stamp-A-Stack February 2012 - Easel Card

Easel Cards are always popular with the card making customers and this year we will be trying a number of different styled Easel Cards in my Stamp A Stack classes.

This one was created for my first Christmas Stamp A Stack for the year.


Stampin Up stamp sets used:

Beautiful Season
French Script
Winter Post


Inks: Bravo Burgundy, Old Olive Classic Inks from Stampin' Up!
Sponging, spritzing with the Spritzer Tool and Old Olive Stampin' Write Marker and images are coloured with an Aqua Painter and Classic Inks
.

The Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch and Bravo Burgundy card make the scalloped details  on the background.  Some stamped Off collage stamping helps create a Vintage feel to this card.

It's always great fun and a challenge to combine different stamp sets and techniques - I think this is what keeps it interesting and helps to develop new ideas for future cards. Sometimes they work really well - other times  - well I'm sure we've all had some of those "other times".  I hope this card has got you thinking, so

Until Next Time

Stay Crafty!
