A Favorite Elf

      I've gotten back to doing easel cards the last month or so and I'd forgotten how many different styles of easels there are.  I think this tent-style, A2 easel was the first I ever tried.  Then I got hooked on twisted easels and did many of those.  Eventually, I did a horizontal A2 easel and that has a very different look, more like a step card but without the steps.  :-D  So, I've come full circle and am back to a tent-style A2 easel.

     The image is from the progressive challenge at Stamper's Delights.  Colored with ProMarkers and gel pens, then cut with a die from Cuts.  The frame was also cut from a scrap of Recollections dp with a die from that same Cuts set.  Sentiment printed and cut with a smaller Cuts die.  I actually cut 3 layers of CS for the sentiment to make it thick enough to act as the 'stopper' for the easel.  I inked the edges with a ProMarker.  I kept the design very CAS because I'm going to use this as a masculine card.


     Happy Crafting, everyone.  NanaConnie

Oh, I do like that fold. Beautiful coloring on the image.
I make very few fold cards, not sure why really because I really like them.
Hugs Monica

I love your take on the easel card (one of my favorites to make)! Your shaped image really makes it so much fun and I'm sure it will be appreciated. Thank you for playing in the Creative Creases Challenge and hope you will join in again soon.
