Whimsy Stamps - Easel Cards are Easy

Hi, Everyone! It's Wednesday again so that means it's time for a new challenge over at Whimsy.

Our Topic this week is
Easel Cards Are Easy

Our Prize this week is

Ok well before I show you my card I have a confession to make .....
this is my first Easel card ever!
Yep thats right .. I had never made one before and had absolutely no idea where to start .. and I thought it was going to be hard.  I have seen Easel cards a lot on blogs and thought they looked so glamorous and I didn't think I would be able to make one so I didn't try.  But let me tell you something .......
they ARE EASY!!!!!!

If you Google Easel Cards you will find lots and lots of instructions and tutorials.
And in Issue 3 of the Whimsy Stamps Inspiration Magazine (here) you will find some awesome examples of Easel Cards!

So without further ado ... here is my card

I have used this gorgeous new image from the store.  Don't forget to check out the new digi images for this month .. there are some fantastic ones that you just have to have :)

So get out your bone scorer and create your own Easel card .... enter it into this weeks challenge and you could be the winner of our prize!

And if you have never made one before ... don't be scared .... they really are easy!

Thanks for stopping by
Big Hugs
