More Than Just an Easel Card

Hello everyone, I'm so pleased to be able to bring you my Cheery Lynn Designs project for this week, I hope you enjoy it as much as I loved creating it. 

I adore making easel cards.  They are so easy but really make your cards works of when I saw this easel card that had four mini drawers on the bottom., I had to give it a whirl.  It was actually fairly simple to create too, just a bit more time.  I will say my Cheery Lynn dies took it to a WOW stage, as they always do. 

My flower was created using the Build A Flower 3.  One of the things I love about the flower dies are they even impress the  realistic veins on the petals to help add to the illusion of a real flower....LOVE IT!!!  I shaded the petals with ink prior to assembly to give the color variation. I had to add the adorable lady bug from the Tiny Things with Wings Dies...I think he looks just perfect sitting on the leaf.

Here is a complete list of all the dies I used 

Be sure to join in our weekly challenge.  The winner gets to go on a $20 shopping spree and this weeks theme is Doilies. Check out the challenge here

Smile Back Card - Flora Delight

I'm always up for trying different shaped cards, so this is the first one of these I've done...not sure what they call this type of card, but it's really fun.  The collection is of course from KaiserCraft, Flora Delight.  I made the purple flowers by hand using Cheery Lynn Dies.  Take a look a the photos below to get a good feel for the card.

I Love You Layout

I love to watch my little one run along the shoreline at the beach.  It's such an innocent freedom.  I created this layout of him running from KaiserCraft's Suga Pop Collection.  It is actually a girly collection but I thought it worked great with this picture of my little boy.
