Cherry Blossom Easel Card

Good morning :-) Thursday already or as my ever optimistic son calls it 'Friday Eve' lol. My card today is another sample using the scrummy new clear stamps from Chocolate Baroque.

I made a little shaped easel card using nestabilities and cut an aperture in the top part of the easel to hold the focal image which is stamped on vellum. I embossed the lantern from the reverse with a ball tool and added a little colour with coloursoft pencils. The sentiment and frame are  from 'Best Relative Ever', stamped with versamark and embossed with WOW gold detail EP, I used a gold krylon pen around the edges. To prop the easel up I added some of the lovely cherry blossoms from Chocolate Baroque and some paper roses. Here's another photo showing the side view, I've popped a little battery tea light in to shine through the lantern:

  5. This is beautifully effective & so elegant - the little splashes of pinky red with the flowers are perfect & I love the way the white flowers pick up on the vellum. The gold works a treat with the brown & white classiness.
