May All Your Weeds be Flowers Easel Card

For my "Anything Goes" project this month I made an easel card using Mother's Day Daisy and Spring Sentiment Set.

Mothers day Daisy                                                          Spring sentiments set


All DD stamps used: "Mother's Day Daisy" and " Spring Sentiment Set."

Cardstock & papers: Prints from "Uptown Flair" by The Paper 
Studio, cardstock by Recollections

Markers: Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers

Acc./ Embellishments: SVG card design by My Scrap Chick, three 1 1/2 inch paper flowers by Martha Stewart, six 7/8 inch paper flowers by Craft Smart, various sizes of black pearls

Special Technique: 

The card for my easel is "Frills Circle Easel Card" from My Scrap Chick. I made the bottom layer 6 inches and the top layer 5 inches. This allows a little of the bottom layer to show around the lower half of the top layer. 

The Mother's Day Daisy image was printed at 3 1/4 inches and the sentiment is 2 by 1 1/4 inches.

I scattered seven flowers across the left side of the card and two on the right. Using the various sized black pearls, I made a swirl on each side of the sentiment and added four pearls to the sentiment.

  1. This is such a happy cheerful card. Loving the blend of colors, prints and textures. Great idea too on resizing the top layer on front of the card.
