Stop and smell the Roses

I thought I had better get this card blogged as I have been asked how I made it !!
It is made using the Create a Card Enchanted Die from Crafter's Companion.

Crafter's Companion

To make the card I cut, embossed and inked the embossed area twice.
I then cut another piece of Centura Pearl Card 1/4" larger than the die cut for both die cuts.
I then inked the edges of all the pieces and then using an edger tool roughened
up the edges and then used glitter glue lightly on the edges. 

I made a 7" x 7" Easel card and adhered the layers with 3D glue to the card.
The sentiment was stamped on the oval cut and then adhered so
 it sat lower than the front of the card.
The stopper for the card is the centre of the die cut adhered with 3D glue.
(I did cut and extra centre so that it raised evenly)
I die cut the Die'sire Leaf 2 die and using Peeled Paint distress ink
coloured them and then shaped them.
I then adhered the leaves and flowers to the card, added the gems
and Voila !!! Finished !

Leanne Chivers said on the POD shows on Ideal world this 
card would take about 20 mins to make......... She was right !!!
It really is quick and easy to make but so effective!!

Happy crafting!


  1. Fab easel card Liz. I agree that the Create a Card dies really do enable you to make a card really quickly but always looks absolutely beautiful. I have some of the Christmas designs and they cut perfectly first time too. Pat x
