Creative Craft World DT easel card

Gosh it is that time again, where is the time flying to?

I have made this easel card for the challenge over at Creative Craft World and this challenge is to make.... yep you guessed it, an easel card. Just in case you have never made one before I have put a step by step tutorial over on the challenge blog and I have also put it on the tutorial page.

Before posting the tutorial my 6 year old daughter tested it out and here is what she made, I think you will agree it is FAB!!! I am so proud, well done Safiyyah Rose!! Obviously if she managed to make this (with very little help from me as she is stubborn and would only let me unjam the Martha Stewart punch, can't think where she gets her stubborn streak from) then it should be easy to follow!

The image is "Ole Grey Mare" Digi Stamp from Stitchy Bear Stamps and with its little plasters is FAB for a get well card, I coloured the image with promarkers. Papers are Basic Grey “Lemonade” and I made the little "flags" using scraps - one of the flags is a bit wonky on this picture but I have sorted it out on the card LOL!

I followed Amanda's' sketch over at Allsorts and got the inspiration from the Basic Grey challenge which this week is a photo inspiration.


  1. This is fabulous Sarah,I love the image and the flags in the

  2. Gorgeous papers and image Sarah, but I have to say I think Saffiyah might be after your job haha! Excellent work by a budding artiste!
