GD: Clare Lloyd #3 Mini Easel Card

Evening everyone, Clare Lloyd back with a little mini easel card which would cheer anyone up! 

I start by simply die cutting the Smoothy card pieces for my card using the Grunge Flower 1 die.

Now for some pattern and colour. I firstly stencilled using stencil brush/Orchid using ELB stencil 005; then stamped using black archival ink and an image from Eclectica Clare Lloyd 01 and after that stamped another image from the set this time using Bora Bora.

Eclectica Clare Lloyd 01

I felt I needed to cut down my easel card into a tab to fit nicely to my decorated flower die.

To complete my card I stamped sentiments/elements using Eclectica Clare Lloyd 01 and used foam pads to stick everything together.

My last project for 2014, hope to share more with you again in 2015! 
Seasons Greeting. Clare. x
