Yay! At last I've made my first easel card and now I can't stop. I've liked the look of them for a while and thought I understood the principal of making one but needed to practise first! No need - the first one I made looked fine and everyone I showed thought it was ever so clever so there's no stopping me now.
I'd seen something similar to this but using circles on a recent challenge blog but I can't remember who made it. I was so impressed I had a go. The cute footballer image is Justin from Digi Boutique, coloured with promarkers. The greeting was made in Microsoft publisher using a basic shape (banners) and inserting a text box. The football used as the stopper is just a peel-off on card. Now that I have these sussed I need to start experimenting with different shapes and sizes.
My second attempt is using Drinking Jim again. The stopper this time is a clipart picture of a beer glass. The paper is very old - from the stash I must use up before I am allowed to buy any more.
I'm entering the second card in the following challenges:
