WWC202 - Dawn's Feminine "Anything Goes" Challenge

Happy New Year, everyone.  I'm excited to show off the card which I created for Dawn's Feminine "Anything Goes" Challenge.  It's a fun (and easy to do) double easel card.

I created this card after seeing Rick Adkins' lovely double easel card.  I love special folds and this one is showy but, oh, so easy.  If you want the instructions and measurements, they're all over on Rick's post.

I have to admit that I've fallen madly and deeply in love with the Floral Romance Suite.  For this card I used some of the gorgeous Floral Romance Specialty Designer Series paper.  The leafy background is a normal, two sided print while the design in the foreground is only printed on one side and is vellum.  Set against the white background, the colours really shine.  I cut the twig and leaves with the Wonderful Floral Framelits dies and love the way they emboss the veins of the leaves so deeply.

Of course I had to use the new Nine Lives set.  I still have the cat punch which goes with this stamp set and love that I can stamp so many types of cats.  Don't you just love the orange tabby?  He's happily sitting on some of the logs which I cut from the Wood Textures Designer Series paper.  After all, he doesn't want to be hidden behind the front easel.

I hope you'll check out the awesome creations by the other Watercooler Artists over at our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge blog.

And, of course, enjoy the wonderful creation by our January 2019 Guest Designer, Sandie Munro.
