Forgotten Meadows Megs Garden Twisted Easel Card by Suzanne Crowther

Hi Everyone hope your all well and doing lots of crafting, this is a twisted easel card I made for Meg's Garden using the delightful paper Forgotten Meadows, this is a very pretty set of paper this is my first project using these papers.

Cut Card stock to 6 X 12 this piece forms the card score this at 6” middle also on the left side at an angle
Distress card stock square + the 2 paper squares for card front, ink these using 2 inks, ink edge of doily in lilac. Fussy cut flower out add glossy accents and beads to centre add a bit of glossy accents to the highlighted flowers then sprinkle with glitter. Thread ribbon at centre of doily tie off at back. Make a bow out of jute or other ribbon put on side for later. Fix the paper to card stick layering until top piece is fitted, using 2-way tape fit the doily that you have added the ribbon to. Ink the edges of the fussy cut flowers and use 3d dots fit to doily thread twine add leaves and butterflies place the word believe to the bottom right corner add ribbon bow.
For the inside of the card cut forgotten meadows paper to form a pocket I did paint wisteria on mine for a bit of fun. I placed 3 flowers to the left and added 1 small flower to top which will hold card open. I then added kindy glitz to bow and butterfly i added a chippy bird that i painted white, pink and blue then added glossy accents.

The Tag
