I've made an octagonal easel card. The shape was an easy one to do as I found a pack of tri-fold shaped cards I got ages ago from Joanna Sheen. I cut one of the octagons off to decorate and made the base of the easel card from the rest of the card. I'd totally forgot I'd got these card blanks there are loads of different shapes from tags to perfume bottles etc.
The background is made using a resist technique - I stamped a sketchy bow all around the card base and the easel and embossed with clear EP. I then coloured the card with assorted starburst stains and glimmer mists. I embossed the edges with gold EP. The doily is coloured with pearl glimmer mists, unfortunately the glimmer isn't showing up in the pic. The beautiful lillies are coloured with promarkers and attached with silicone for some dimensions. The butterflies and ivory ribbon are from my stash. The ticket sentiment reads 'Special Friend' and is from Crafty Ann's
