I just had to share some more of my Easel cards made with the fabulous new dies by Crafter's Companion that are being launched on Hochanda TV on Monday
This is the floral easel, it's a lovely scalloped circle shape that has a beautiful floral overlay (which is in two parts so it can be used in various ways)
On my first card I used one overlay at the top of the card and one of the flowers to decorate the base, so that I had lots of space to add a coloured image
on my second card I used both floral overlays and coloured them with distress inks and finished it very simply with a pretty bow. i also decorated the base with the overlays.
Easel cards have always been my favourite shape to make, I remember a blogging friend saying to me years ago that easel cards mean you have double the space to add embellishments. There are four lovely shapes to choose from in this new launch, so lots more choice of lovely space to decorate on your card!!
This is what I did....
Both cards -

Collall All purpose glue,Tacky glue and 3d glue gel
red liner tape - I always use this to secure the easel to the base as it gives a strong bond
