Easel Card

Hi there! I have another project to show off. This is my first ever easel card!!! :) I've been wanting to try my hand at them, 'cause I love their unique look. And seriously, for a fancy-folding card, this one is about the simplest one I've tried yet! It only looks complicated! LOL

Fly Away Card

Well blogland....I'm not officially back yet.... :P but I did spend a hours at my crafting table this afternoon, so I thought I'd post my creation.

A fellow cardmaker gave me her Fiskar "Fly Away" border punch to borrow....to see if I could come up with an idea of how to incorporate it into a card. While I do love the punch I actually had to give it back without even one single card to show!!!!!!!!!! It's a cute punch, but it's different. Kinda a lot wider than punches I've used in the past....I don't really know what it was about it exactly.

Today I saw the punched sheets and thought -- why not give it another try. This time it worked....and I finally have a card to show for it! LOL What'cha think??? Think it works???
