"You're a reason to smile" Easel Card

Hi there, this is Joann from jlopezdesigns! I am super duper excited to be bringing you my first post for Butterfly Reflections, Ink DT! This is my first design team ever and I am truly grateful and honored to have made this awesome team!

With all that excitement put to aside, let me bring you my first project! I decided to make an easel card using a few items that Vanessa sent me. Now let me tell you when my package arrived it felt like Christmas, lol, I couldn't wait to see what goodies Vanessa sent! As soon as I opened my package and came across Fancy Pants Burlap & Bouquets Ephemera die cuts, let me tell you, I was in love! The colors and variety of the die cuts are just gorgeous, these are definitely a must have for your die cut collection!

I used some black card stock for my base and some white watercolor paint to add a little more dimension to the card. I added some Kool Tak Clear Foam (love this stuff, especially for adding dimension when the card base is black) behind all of my die cuts and added double behind a couple of flowers to raise them a bit higher!

Finally, I added some We R Memory Keepers enamel shapes and clear Wink of Stella to my flowers to finish of the card! I really enjoyed making this card and love the way it turned out! To purchase any or All of these awesome supplies, I've linked them all below!

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to come back tomorrow to see what Chitra has in store for you!
