Purrr..fect Anniversary Easel Card

You will need
Cream cardstock 14 x 14 cm
Pattern paper
strip of lace paper
gold mirror card
pink dew drops
large gem heart
paper button candies

 Step 1
First take some plain white card and cut a square 12 x 12 then stamp your image of the cats onto it. Then centre the image inside your  'Fleur de lis' spellbinder die and run though the cuttlebug. Cut and emboss but DONT remove the die. use your 'aged mahogany' and ink round the outside of the die-cut then remove the centre and cover the inside of the square with some waste paper and ink up the edges. I finished the edges off with a little glitter. when it is dry colour the image with your spectrum noirs or pro-markers, I used both for this card. Put the centre and the frame together again and stick the two to each other with some tape on the back. add a pink dew drop in each corner and then put the finished topper to one side for the moment.

Step 2
Take a 14 x 14 cream card and fold the front flap in half . so you have a card with a square back and a folded in half front .This is the basis of your Easel card, cover the base of the card with some patterned paper.

Step 3
 Then take some white card stock and cut a 12 x12 square. Emboss with your 'Mystic' M-bossibilities folder then gently ink all around the edges of the square with your 'aged mahogany' ink pad and matt and layer this onto some gold mirror card. Then stick this onto the base of your cream easel card.

Step 4
Take your base card and cover 1/2 flap (farest from the fold) with the patterned paper that matches the base of the card
Take your topper and stick it in the middle of the covered 1/2 flap of your cream card so it stands on top of the larger square

make a bar out of gold mirror card and add your strip of lace paper then cut several swirls out of gold mirror card using your Festive Greenery Sizzix die add these to the bar with some paper flowers and attach to the base card. This bar is what stops your topper from slipping down.

Step 6
Cut the 2 spellbinder shapes from the iron works and pirot edged circles and mount together then add the large heart gem in the middle, stick to the base card. add the sentiment on the topper, and a few paper button candies on the base and the card is finished.
