Birthday Easel Card


This card is for my sister-in-law's birthday.  I made the easel card using spellbinders dies. There are lots of layers but I love the way it turned out.  I had these papers in my stash for awhile and decided they would look great paired with this Tilda in Hat from Magnolia Stamps. It's one of the first Magnolia stamps I purchased several years ago.  The button is an old one I found in my button jar.  Everyone has a button jar, right?  I add to it when I find buttons at estate sales.  I added a bit of cheesecloth behind a few layers. I think it matches up with the veil on her hat nicely.  I inked all the edges of the paper with walnut distress ink and then added some shabby pink embossing enamel.

Stamp: Tilda with hat from Magnolia Stamps
