Come join us for a new challenge this month at the Stampendous blog! Its all about shaped cards this month! I chose to use Cowlick Sunflower for my card, so I mimicked the flower shape with a large Scallop circle. I cut two large rust colored cardstock pieces and one pattern paper of the same size with one of the Nesting Scallop dies from QuicKutz for Lifestyle Crafts.
My gold pattern was cut with a size down, as was the actual card "base". The base I folded in half then ran through my Epic machine leaving a small bit at the top fold uncut by the die. I then folded that again in half on the front part to form the front of the easel.
Cowlick was colored in copics, picking up the orange and rusts of my papers from Basic Grey and Cosmo Cricket. I tied a large golden yellow bow (May Arts) and adhered with a craft size glue dot to the upper left of the flower card. The tag uses a sentiment from Birthday Assortment. Here's the card laying flat.
And here's cute little Cowlick up close...he's one of many new stamps in the newest character line from Stampendous! The Cowlick Collection....Mooooo! How cute is he??
And on the inside of the card I stamped another phrase from BirthdayAssortment and added a sunflower (stamped from the Cowlick Sunflower and cut out). This is the piece that will catch the front of the card and make it stand up in an easel.
