ID: MC Aug/18 - Easel Bugs - ECD Flourished Oval - Have an Awesome Day card
size: 5"w x 7"H (easel closed)

Created: August 6, 2018

Suzanne came out with fabulous fonts available on Silhouette and usable in Word, emails and of course with electronic cutters. it's an "otf" monoprint, all caps font, this one called "Alpha Bee"

I'm using an A Way With Words dies  "Flourished Oval" 2pce set from Elizabeth Craft Designs, also available on Quietfire Design HERE

I'm also using a clear quote stamp "Happy Birthday Collection" 8pce set from Quietfire Design, also available from Elizabeth Craft Designs HERE

And am using the Alpha Bee font from Suzanne available on Silhouette. Click image to purchase.


Scored, and folded my white cardstock cardstock to create easel structure. Cut another piece from black cardstock same size as card and adhered to front. 

Created the alcohol background on Yupo. Stamped the bugs (Tim's "Entomology" set) using the Alcohol Lift ink pad and stamping on white cardstock. Trimmed down, sponged various Distress colors around edges then adhered to card front

Used the "Alpha Bee" font in my word processor and printed on white paper. Die cut with the flourished oval. Die cut one from the fuchsia cardstock. Adhered elements of both to card front.

On the floor: I didn't like the results of the alcohol lift on my background, so continued sponging blending solution and then pressing gold leaf into the dampness - love it... 

Die cut an oval using Stitched Rectangles (Elizabeth Craft Designs) - the drop out piece I'm keeping for another project.

Adhered the alcohol background to card floor. Used my Tim's Stampin Platform to stamp the quote using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Trimmed the oval with small pink pearls.

Die cut a couple butterflies (Memory Box "Vivienne" and "Kaleidoscope") from an art piece I didn't like... Cut out solid images of the butterflies from white cardstock, smeared with white glue, adhered the butterfly and sprinkled with glitter. Adhered to card floor.
