Easel card/Comission

Needed to make a card for an order from work - for a lady who will be a hundred - WOW!  Couldn't make any of the challenges fit but decided to go for an easel card for the first time following a tutorial here over and also you can see some beautiful DT cards from the Magnolia-licious DT ladies using this template.  I have to say, it was so easy to make but so effective!





Paper is a sheet I've had for ages from Anna Griffin - can't believe I managed to cut it because it is sooo pretty - deep  breaths!!! Used my Martha Stewart Doiley Lace punch and with numbers cut from DCWV Glittered stack.  Flower punched with a combo of Woodware and Stampin up punches.





This is just to show you the side view and how I've used the buttons as the lip to hold the easel up. 

Well, Monday morning so better finish getting ready for work - have a good week everyone!
Signature final
