Mothers day easel card.

Hello peeps!!!
I am 'chill'-axin in my craft room tonight after a busy week at work. I decided to make a start on my mothers day cards.

Do you ever struggle with making one different (...or better!!!) than last years effort? Omg I do!!!! I saw an awesome heart shaped easel card on the just magnolia blog(...i think thats where it was...) So this year I am going to do shaped easel cards, I love easel cards and this one was sooooo easy!!!!
Here it is.......
All I did was use my wildcart cart to cut the heart card out,(I think I did it at
4 3/4 " to get the envelope made too). I used the negative left from the card base as a template to cut the topper piece for the easel part and then scored the base card at 2" before attaching the heart.
I made the standy up bit with martha and a bit of ribbon tied in a bow so that the heart topper sits just nicely in the middle of the bow.
I coloured tilda ,she's so stinkin cute, she looks like she's saying " i love you this much mum!!"
I cut the stitched heart element out too and stiched t with some gold thread, I popped the negative bit through my cuttlebug to emboss it and popped it behind the stitched heart.

I wanted tilda to look like she was stepping through the heart so I popped here little foot inside.
I cut 'mum' from my ACY cart and added a bit of inking and a few pearls. I also doodled some kisses either side of the word mum.
Here's a side view.......

I am so pleased with this one as I have been neglecting doug the big bug a little recently and favouring my princess b ( yep.... I have lost it, I named my bugs!!! Doug is my Big E and Princess b is my baby!!!!! lol!!!) I sometimes forget just how much fun the cards are on wildcard and so easy to do too.

I have crafty club tomorrow so I am looking forward to that, its so nice to catch up with everyone and have fun creating alongside each other, their is so much talent and inspiration when you all get together.
See you soon,
