My first easel card... well, kinda

Easel cards are all the rage at the moment – and they’re easy to make, so why has it taken me so long to make one?

Well, truth be known, I still haven’t, as this wasn’t made by me – not entirely anyway. It was created for a challenge at the Stampin’ Up!® training day in Sheffield last month and was a team effort using the box of supplies provided.

The stamp set is Vintage Vogue, from the new Mini catalogue, and the wheel is the co-ordinating Very Vintage. I can’t remember what my input was – oops! I do remember that our table won the challenge to prepare a workshop in 45 minutes, so we must have done something right!

Stamps: Vintage Vogue, Very Vintage jumbo wheel
Cardstock: Old Olive, Whisper White, Chocolate Chip
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Old Olive
Accessories: ¼” Grosgrain Ribbon - Whisper White, Silver brad
