It's Tuesday and there is a party happening at Party Time Tuesdays! Put your engineer hat on, it's time to make an easel card! The DT did a fantastic job with these cards! If you don't know how to make an easel card, you can find instructions here or here. Upload your card to your blog and link it up to PTT by 8:00 pm Monday, November 22nd to be eligible for the Top 3 and a possible random draw pick for the monthly prize! Di & Kristie are also holding a DT Call right now, check it out here.
I'm not going to lie to you. I had trouble with this card. I had trouble with the construction part, an engineer I am not! :) The instructions on the tutorial are so easy to follow and yet, I still couldn't make it work! (where's Tim Gunn when you need him?) :) I had trouble with the design part too. The first card was too pink, the second card was wonky and so I had to settle for my third card, mainly because the deadline was looming. Have you read the about me over in the upper right hand corner? Sometimes the "procrastinating perfectionist" part of me gets me into trouble. :) To top it all off, I had camera issues when it came time to photograph it.
Alright already, enough excuses. ;) Here's is my card:
The snowflakes are my favorite part. They are made with modeling paste with glitter added to it and applied with a brass stencil. I used it with pearl ex on this tag and loved the results!
I'm looking forward to seeing your easel cards!
