Easel Cards


This type of card is just fab. It takes a simple card and makes it look complicated and dead difficult. Have a look how to make these cards right here on the Charmed Cards & Crafts site. If you haven't visited our idea section then I implore you to look, we have some fabulous work from our design team.


You can make them as complicated or as simple as you like, they always look great.




I used Imaginisce Perfectly Posh paper
Queen & Co's Mini Felt Fusion has been wrapped around the top.
Prima Lace for the bow
K&Co Que Sera Sera Adhesive Gems
Prima Sugar Coated flower
I coloured the image with Copic Markers
a Tim Holtz Paper Distresser was used to roughen the edges of the paper.
I created the personalised greeting myself.
Nestabilities was used to cut the scalloped frames.
There's also a Basic Grey Glazed Brad on there - from the Sugared or Sultry collection I think.

Did you know that we are probably the largest K&Co and Basic Grey stockists in the United Kingdom? We stock a huge selection from these two giants, as well as many other fab ranges, such as Prima, Bo Bunny, Fancy Pants, Karen Foster, Hot Off The Press, Martha Stewart, Imaginisce and many many more. Charmed Cards & Crafts really are your one stop shop :-)

Thanks for stopping by ♥
