Easel Framed Card

Hi Crafters :)

Today I'm sharing my post here at Sheila's blog and at my blog

I just recently had a Family reunion in Brighton, my eldest brother came down from Scotland to join us, we had a blast as we hadn't seen him for years, so I wanted to make a special card for my Mum, it's an easel framed card I designed using Fancy Frames as my base, with the phrase from Gypsy Wanderings.

This card measures 5" x 5.5" , it holds a 3.5" x 2.5" sized photo.

All the frame cuts were set at 5", 2 shadow cuts were flipped and welded together to form the base.
The "Family" phrase was cut at 2.75" wide, from GW

I used foam pads (pop dots) to adhere the frames together, then adhere my picture to the back of the opening, next I adhered the assembled frame and picture to my shadow frame, then glued the bottom half of the shadow cut to the folded card frame.

I also used foam pads on the phrase to give the dimension needed to be used as a stopper when the card was erect.

My Mum will love this card with her, my eldest brother and his wife :)

Because of my poorly eyesight right now, I used CCR to design in, though I have made the file available in the Gypsy format too, for those that want it, the files are below

Gypsy file can be downloaded HERE   (Expression mats used)

CCR file can be downloaded HERE  (Imagine mats used)

Thanks for popping by today and thanks Sheila for allowing me to share my DT project with you all :)

Happy Crafting
