Valentine Easel Card

Today I tried following a tutorial for an easel card . I'm still
pretty new to making handmade cards using paper instead of digital design,
but even I think this one turned out really cute.
The tutorial I followed step by step was by Mary Lou Schroeder .
It was posted on her blog
I've never tried an easel card yet,
so I gave it a whirl . The cute yorkies I used ,with her permission,
are by artist Jane Hoffer. I love her artwork and she knows it :-)
Patterned paper is by K & Company. So until I get my mojo
back for digital design , I'll be making cards to give to my
family and friends.
I've made more cards in the last few months. I may add them here if
anyone is interested. I'd also like to thank those of you that sent
such nice condolences after reading my previous post. I was very touched.
I know we all have lost beautiful furbabies that are every
bit our family as our lovely human children. They are very loved still
even though at Rainbow Bridge.


  1. I used to get into card making and have heaps of books about it. I found digital :-/ lol
    Isn't something I have done for a while.

    Beautiful card, its absolutely gorgeous! :-)))

  2. Judy, this card is really beautiful and funtastic looking. Did you use Spellbinder heart dies & Scalloped circles for the shapes? I love the cuttlebug, it makes me look more like I know what I'm doing :). ha Great card, thanks for the ideas.

  3. Thanks for stopping by Dave. Thank you both for the nice comments. Yes, I used Spellbinder dies. In the months I've been doing this I have used 40 % off coupons from Hobby Lobby to buy every style Spellbinders die I can get my hands on.:-)I even hand a second coupon to hubby and let him buy another one for me. You gotta love supportive spouses !
