Cheery Lynn Designs French Flair Easel Card

Yesterday you saw a wonderful easel card that team member, Kianel made using the Circle XL Stackers from  Cheery Lynn Designs.  My card for today uses the Classic French Flair XL Stackers Nesting dies and the coordinating Silver French Flair XL Stackers to create the base of my easel card.


The great thing about the Stackers is the size of the largest die.  This card is 5 5/8" square when closed, a perfect size for a 6" envelope.  The wonderful paper is from the Basic Grey Sweet Threads 6x6 paper pack.  Using Adobe Photoshop Elements, I merged these two fabulous digi images from Tickled Pink Stamps and printed them onto Cryogen paper.  Copics used:
Eric - E000, E00
Eyes - E23
Hair - E21, E23, E25
Hoodie - BG70, BG72
Jeans - YG61, G40
Sneakers - BG70, BG72, C2
Willow - E000, E00
Eyes - B12
Hair - YR21, YR23, YR24
Dress and Bows - RV02, RV04, RV06
Boots - RV04, C2
Flowers - R14, R27, BG72, YG61
Shadow - C1

Using my Cheery Lynn Designs Heart to Heart Doily dies, I created the heart behind the kids. I die cut 2 Sunflowers and 2 of the largest Darling Daisies to create the big flower on the front of the card, adding a Fanciful Flourish behind it.  The smaller flower on the base of the card was made using 2 each of all three Darling Daisies.  I was trying to mimic the mums on the background paper.  I added a bit of the Fanciful Flourish there as well.  I added Border Carnivale to the base with some pearl accents and then the final step was the saying from Hero Arts, stamped onto layered French Flair Little Stackers die cuts.
