#1 Dad Easel Card

Hi everyone! This month over at the Crafty Card Gallery we had to try a new technique. Well, if you know me I love taking a 12x12 sheet of cardstock and making four 3"x6" cards out of that one sheet. After much trial and error…I tried gesso and a stencil and let me tell you I had a very big mess but I did manage a few gessoed dots on the top part of my card without smearing. I did decided to finally try my hand at a easel card and this is what I came up with.
I cut a 6"x6" cardbase from Calamity Jane Stripe cardstock and the easel I cut a 6"x11" with folds at 4", 4",1",1",1" from brown cardstock.
The sailors digital image is from Eclectic Anthology. I printed on cardstock and fussy cut out. I cut a piece of cream cardstock and distressed the edges and inked and then adhered the sailor image to the top of it. Next I added gauze, twine around the edge of the cream colored cardstock and then adhered to the base. I fussy cut sea life from a sheet of scrapbook paper that is from Paper Studio. I adhered those along with real mini seashells, dew drops and sequins around the edges of the base.




I folded the brown cardstock and adhered to the back of the card. 



Next I cut the leftover striped and red cardstock and glued three of the sides to the back to make a pocket. It will be perfect to add a small note and gift card. Now I have a father's day card finished and need to create one more. :-)



If you have any questions please let me know. Thanks for stopping by, hope your Sunday is awesome and enjoy creating!!! :-)
