DCM - Easel Card

It's Paula's turn to set the dare over on the Daring Cardmakers blog this week.

"Easel Does it

This weeks challenge is to make an easel card. There's a big clue in the title, huh?

They are so very popular at the moment but I'm hoping at least some of you will be up for my extra "sting in the tail" to this Dare - I don't want it to be too easy, you know....what I'd really love is to see what type of shape (other than a square) you can come up with using the basic Easel card idea.

So you can go for the easy option and make the simple version of the easel card, or if you're brave enough,go for the shaped option.

Do you dare?" 

Here's my card.  I used the instructions from Splitcoaststampers adjusting the measurements to suit the Manhattan Flower Embossing Folder.

Pop over to the Daring Cardmakers blog to see what the rest of the design team have come up with.  There's some fantastic shapes, trianges, flower pots etc etc.  Please join in and leave us a comment so we can pop over and admire your Easel card design.

Using the outline of the roses to create the shape is a very clever idea - it's gorgeous!
