Just Add Ink #490 - Add An Easel

Hello Crafty Friends

Welcome to Just Add Ink #490 - Add An Easel. Oh my giddy aunt....I haven't made an Easel Card in forever! At first I was a little stumped as to what I was going to make so decided on creating the card front elements and the actual Easel part will come to fruition at a later stage - that was the plan lol. I opted for another quick and easy Tropical Wonderland creation.

The Memories and More cards have been a breeze to create with and having a few extra fussy cut images laying around  I decided to make an easel with a sandy shaker front. The frame has been lined with Acetate before adhering foam strip around the outer edge. The fussy cut Coconut image was adhered to the front of the shaker element with Tombow.

Next, I created a basic easel Fold that would hold the card front and then went to work on the sponged Shimmery White Panels, using Pineapple Punch, Grapefruit Grove, Flirty Flamingo and Melon Mambo inks. These two panels were then ran through the Big Shot with the Parisian Embossing Folder before adhering to the easel base.

To finish the card I added a die cut panel inside so there is space to write a message and then stood the card where I wanted it to be and placed the Tropical Oasis M & M sticker with a little twine just in front. A heat embossed sentiment hung from twine slotted over the frame nicely and is held in place with a glue dot.

That is all from me today. We would love for you and your crafty friends to play along, if you have a you blog can add your creation to the Just Add Ink gallery here. Don't have your own blog?
