|Easel card -- open|
The colour scheme of my card is for this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge #66, black and white with a splash of lilac/purple. (My kind of colours!) Over at All Things Unity, the challenge (#23) is to create either an easel or tri-fold card. This is my first try at an easel card, but the tutorial at Splitcoast Stampers made it easy. I did have to do a little mental visualization to make sure I got the textured cardstock base facing the right way. ;) I'm not sure I'll be making a lot of easel cards, but it seemed to work well with the stamps I'd picked.
Charles Dickens. Happy sigh. ☺
