HI Friends,
Today i am posting a circular easel card ,this is my first easel card and i had a lot of fun creating an easel card for the first time,so here's a look at my card first:
  and now a closer view of the flowers:
   and now a view of the insides of the card:
      and finally how the card look's when closed:
   Okay now a little bit about how I made  the card ,I have used three handcut scallop circle to create the card I have traced them from the diecut which i had got from kavi's store then for the front panel I layered it with a paper mania pp on which i then placed a a punched circle from the Fiskars circle  border punch and in between these two layer's i have placed a Fiskers scallop border paper lace which i have pleated and then stuck to give a more natural lace look,then i made the roses with a scallop scissors and rolled it and then placed some punched leaves and flowers.The swan is stamped using the Inkadinkadoo clear stamp and  colored with regular Faber Castell color pencils and then fussy cut and placed on dimension'sand then I added a little Hobby Ideas glitter glue.
                  For the the insides of the card I layered it with a Paper mania   pp which i have hand cut, tracing it from a die-cut and then punched a scallop and layered it with a hand cut circle and stamped the sentiment using the THE PAPER COMPANY clear stamps.I have added some punched flowers and leaves as well.
That's about all ,Thanks for taking time to go through my post hope you like my card,if you do, please do not forget to leave me a comment as I really would love your input.Have a nice day everyone.
