Swing Easel Card

Today I am sharing a card I have made for my Niece, Amelia, turning two.

I have used the girl on a swing from the retired stamp set A Kind Word. I just had to do an open easel card to really set this swinging girl off. The blue area has been sponged using the cupcake punch (cake top) as a mask. This is my favorite way to create clouds.

 Simply punch out the top in scrap card and then place it where you would like the cloud to appear and sponge over the top section. I have used Bashful Blue ink on the same coloured cardstock but also works great using white cardstock. Move mask and repeat until you are happy with the coverage.

Little Leaves layered over each over form the tree at the top and Certainly Celery cardstock double punched with the scallop border punch creates the grass. There is also another grassy section at the back that shows through under the girls feet! Itty Bitty punched flowers scatter the lawn and also the tree so the vine running down the swing ropes all ties in together. And what flower would be complete without a basic pearl to center it? How cute is this card!

Thanks for stopping by. Cheers Dani xoxox
