Friday Sketchers #81 & Just Magnolia # 34...Cards for Someone Special!

Good Morning crafty friends! I have a few cards to share with you that I made with the great sketch by Betrix over at Friday Sketchers and for the Just Magnolia Special Monthly Challenge! The special challenge is to make a card for someone special, smile! Well these are two cards for very special girlfriends!

Well, I finally made an Easel card and I absolutely love 'em!!! I don't know what took me so long to take the plunge, smile! I think I was a little intimidated but it is sooooo super easy and looks fabulous!

I made my cardbase 6x6 with Prism Kraft cardstock and used BG Eskimo Kisses 6x6 patterned paper. I stamped Unwrapped Tilda on ATS Copic Quality paper and made a mask and stamped the Magnolia Christmas Present with Bow. I coloured the image with my Copics and cut it out with my Nesties using the out of the box technique. I left the image in the Nestie and inked with Distress inks.I added the Melissa Frances Rub-ons, American Crafts ribbon, a few half pearls, some Prima flowers and Shimmerized Tilda to finish it off!

For this card I basically did the same as above I didn't mask here but I cut the image out using the out of the box technique.

I just love how these easel cards turned out...I hope the "special someones" who receives them will enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them! I will definitely be making more...hope you don't get sick of seeing easel cards and BG Eskimo Kisses, lol!!!

Thanks for stopping by and having a wee peek!

Have a stampin' great day!
