The last few cards, I have been experimenting with easel cards! They are so fun. I love how they stand up on their own. Here in France we celebrate Mother's Day two weeks after Canada, so this one for my mother-in-law is my most recent. We phoned to see if it had made it there yet (so Papa could hide it until tomorrow!!) and found out that even though I sent it a couple of days ago, it still isn't there. Usually the postal service is amazingly fast...but not so when the there is a national strike. Gotta love France!
The second is of course my dad's birthday card...which is of course late due to--wait for it!--the postal service. Okay, probably it is also my fault for not getting it mailed soon enough. `
On this card I tried the double stamp technique. The first time I stamped it in the base colour and the second time I coloured the stamp with my markers and re-stamped the sections in the middle. That stamp-a-ma-jig is a fabulous tool. There is one section which jiggles a little bit, but that's okay. It sort of gives it a 3D effect!!
What do you think? Aren't easel cards wonderful? Go ahead and leave a message. I love your comments.
