Dancing Butterflies

Morning. Today's card uses the Shield easel from Crafters Companion to make a congratulations card. The new Easel Die Collections were launched on Hochanda earlier this month, so many of you will now have them. If you have, I hope you are having fun creating with them, Are you having fun and what have you been creating.

For this card you will need:
Pebeo 4Artist Marker Gold
Purple Centura Pearl (Darks Collection)
Crafters Companion Paper Pad 12 x 12 or Coordinating paper of your choice
Lilac Ribbon 
Label Die
Congratulations Stamp

Step 1: From a folded sheet of purple card cut your easel base, In the same card cut the smaller shield for the base.

Step 2: From the patterned paper cut 2 butterflies and the smaller shield.

Step 3: Cut out the 2 butterflies and overlay with the clear sparkle pen. Leave to dry.

Step 4: Using the butterfly from the Floral Easel set, cut 2 from parchment and shape.

Step 5: Using the Pebeo 4Artist Marker edge all of the base card elements. Wrap ribbon around the base and secure behind with double sided tape. Make some ribbon roses in the same ribbon and use them as your stopper. Then assemble your card as shown.

Thank you for taking the time to visit the blog today. I hope you have enjoyed the tutorial and the finished card. 

I hope to see you on Monday, for some more, for now Take care and Happy Crafting.xx
