Easel card

Morning to you all once again! We are really in the season of fall by now as it's getting really dark. It's only a few days before we move the clock back and the dark season starts for real.

This card is a dt-card for the Paper shelter as always on Wednesdays. This weeks theme is Easel cards of all kinds but it must show that shape. :) I love making this kind of cards but I really, really hate taking photos of them. It's so hard, I really need a good class of using lights in the right way and getting myself some good old lamps for this. Oh well, I can only dream of it for now, but one day! :)


Ok then, bad pictures but I love how the card turned out IRL. I have coloured with my Letraset family. And the designer papers comes from Dovecraft Back to Basic Christmas. To decorate the card have I used some flowers from WOC and I am Roses. Some hemp string to tie a few bows, some red bells and a bunch of die cuts from Magnolia and Memory box. Some pearls and pearl stars is also used. The trees is covered with some snow tex and then I added some glitter to it as well. The sentiment says Merry Christmas in Swedish and is made with alpha stickers from my stash, they could be from Panduro but I am not sure. Stickles is also used on the the flowers for a festive look. :)



The image is called A Marshmallow for the Christmas Elf. Isn't he the cutes ever seen? If you want to see a wonderful use of this image take a look at my teamie's card here. It's to die for. I normally don't link like this but I totally adore the card Lena made with this image. It's so different from mine and looks totally amazing!


Here is a little view of the "down" part of the card. Sentiment in Swedish and a simple decoration. After all I want to be able to send the card to someone without paying a fortune for the postage.



As always we have our $30 gift voucher up for grabs if you play with a TPS product and you really should go and take a look of what's added to the store lately. There is some totally adorable smashing new images. Like a new fabby looking angel, some sweet wonderful Santas etc. Go on over and take a look for yourself and if you still doesn't want to play with a TPS image, you can still enter our challenges with another brand having the chance of winning three digis of your choice.

Love n hugs
