Birthday Dreams Easel Card

My mother-in-law asked me if I would make a card for her to give a friend for her birthday.  She loved the card I gave her last year for Mother's Day and said she would like one similar so I went to work and came up with this.

I made the same background paper as I had on her card.  First, I did a second generation stamping of the Elegant Word background stamp in chocolate and then continued random stamping with images from PTI's Life, also in second generation chocolate.  To make my focal point, I cut and embossed two layers in consecutive sizes from the Labels 1 die.  I used the Tea Dye Duo heavily on the larger die and then edged it with a gold paint pen.  I repeated the same process for the smaller die cuts I used for the stopper.  I also edged the Dark Chocolate cardstock with gold paint as well.

On the base, I cut Dark Chocolate cardstock on the diagonal and used a border punch along one edge.  I also stamped it with the Impression Obsession Scratches Cover-a-Card stamp.  The stickers are from K&Company and I added some pearl swirls and a chocolate striped ribbon.  The completed card is 5" x 5" when it's closed.

Well, I'm off to mail it.  I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Products Used:
Paper - PTI Vintage Cream and Chocolate
Ink - Dark Chocolate and Tea Dye Duo
K&Co stickers, adhesive pearl swirls, gold paint pen, CTMH Dark Chocolate striped grosgrain ribbon
