....and it's taking shape in the form of Valentine Easel cards. 14 of them to be exact. Valentine's Day is my fave holiday. I LOVE everything about it: cards, hearts, flowers, chocolates, romantic gestures...... It's by far my fave ART holiday. This year I have discovered easel cards. Who knew? These are delightfully fun to make and the recipient can display them if they choose. Win Win! :)
So, I wanted them to be similar in design but yet still unique. I made the base cards 5 x 10, so the finished easel panels are 5" square. I pre-cut and scored all the cards in stages. I used German scrap, collage sheet images, BINGO cards, vintage hymnal sheets, vintage dictionary pages, and antique heart doilies, seals and gummed hearts from an estate sale find.
I must admit I am very happy with the results and I hope my friends and family enjoy receiving them!
