Welcome to the Easel Card Blog Hop!

 
 


Hi Everybody!
Welcome to the Easel Card Blog Hop!  Hopefully you just came from visiting Tonya.  If not, please head over to see our hop hostess Ashley so you can start from the beginning. Don't forget to check out all the details on how to win some fantastic prizes on Ashley 's blog too!!

I got hooked on making easel cards after just making one!  While looking around for a tutorial, I found this great website Card-Making-Magic.com.  This is where I got the tutorial for the Triple Twisted Easel card I made today.  You can check it out HERE for that tutorial and more.  There are TONS of great ideas for card designs!  Here are the details for my card:

 
*Makin' the Grade Cricut cartridge (hand)
*Sweet Shop Cricut cartridge (candy bar)
*Cuttlebug - Preserves embossing folder (on yellow mat)
*Stampin' Up - scalloped punch, inks
*My Mind's Eye - patterned paper
*Papertrey Ink - solid brown cardstock (base)
*Jaded Blossom - Chocolate Lovers stamp set (sentiment, truffles)
*Timeless Twine - Chocolate Chip
 *white gel pen for detailing



*I thought this would be a fun card to give a fellow chocolate lover!



*That sentiment is soooo true, lol!





*For the truffles, I stamped them on kraft colored cardstock.  Then I colored them in with Copic markers.



*Here's a shot of the back, and what the folds look like.
*The cool thing is that this will fit inside a business size envelope!


I hope you liked my easel card :O)  Now head on over to see
as the next stop in the hop!
