ID: MC Aug/18 - Easel Alcohol Frame - ECD Magic - Gracias - There Is Always card
size: 7"w x 5"H (Easel closed)

Created: August 24, 2018

I created 3 cards with 1 alcohol background from a 5 x 7" piece of Yupo - this one is the left over piece creating the frame and is the 3rd in the series... You can see the others HERE (positive) and HERE (negative pieces)

I'm using an A Way With Words dies  "Gracias"  from Elizabeth Craft Designs, also available on Quietfire Design HERE

And I'm using a quote stamp from Quietfire Design ("Give Thanks" 2pce set); 



Scored and folded my white gold pearlescent cardstock (  to create the easel structure. Cut another piece same size from cream toned cardstock. Dry embossed using Darrice "Wire Fence" embossing folder. Adhered to card. Adhered the alcohol frame.

As mentioned before, the frame is a left over piece from this background on Yupo... Created the alcohol background from a 5" x 7" piece of white Yupo using a "Butterscotch", "Poppy Field" and "Botanical" alcohol ink and blending solution. Since my die cut (Tutti Designs "Leaves Background")  is only 4 x 5.25" I was able to create a frame from the leftover Yupo. 


Die cut the leaf border (Tutti Designs "Maple Leaf Frame") from a distress decorated linen cardstock. Adhered to front.

Die cut the "Gracias" from another piece of alcohol background created on glossy paper.

On the floor: Selectively embossed the leaves (Sizzix "Fall") using my hard rubber mallet.

Stamped the quote using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed on cream cardstock. Die cut with Elizabeth Craft Designs "Stitched Ovals" die set, sponged some "Candied Apple" around the edges. Adhered to floor.

I had created a silhouette image of the bird (Elizabeth Craft Designs "Bluebird") and cut with my Silhouette machine, Stamped, colored (not bluebird colors...) and adhered to floor to act as my stopper.

Added the flourish spray of pearls. Tied a multi loop bow from a red/gold Sari ribbon.
