A Little Snowdrop Easel Card (by Claire)

Hi there, can you tell I love the new snowdrop stamps? Here's another snowdrop card featuring stamps from the beautiful new stamp sheet Elegant Spring Flowers


It was a simple card to make, I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured with promarkers adding very pale dots in the background.  The image was die cut with nesties Labels 4 and I used Bundled Sage distress ink around the edges. I accented the flowers with some glossy accents but you can't see that too well in the photo. To create the shaped easel I folded some pale green card and placed the largest die on the card so that the top overlapped the fold and cut the shape out. I cut another identical shape to mat the image and make the easel topper
. The base of the easel card features the sentiment from Elegant Spring Flowers, stamped again with Memento Tuxedo Black, die cut and distressed with Bundled Sage.  I added generous blobs of Rock Candy Crackle paint to give the sentiment a frosty crackle and popped on some clear dew drops to support the easel. 

 I'll be back later in the week with another spring card but in the mean time my teamies have some more beautiful inspiration for you
