here is a little easel card box that I made last night for a Tilda challenge. Yes, this is the 3rd easel card box I have made this week, but I like how special they are for the reciepiant.... much more like a keepsake than just a card.
This is my first try at coloring pleats.... it has to get better!
I bordered my circle die cut with a pink lace
and then a fabric floral trim on top.
I do love how the grass and flowers came out!
I started out not liking the direction I was going
with this card, but ended up loving
how it all came together.
It is so fun the get to find a way
to decorate the sides of the box!
I picked a pretty fabric, mint green rosette trim.

When you take the easel card top off the box...
there is a lovely surprise inside...
A Happy Mothers Day message!
I colored the stamped message just as I did
on the topper with the little Tilda.
Thanks to my new friend Vix for helping me get the
I know theres still much more to learn,
but I like it so far!
