I did an easel card for a girl this time. She is a sweetie....cute and fashionably sassy. I thought that this TGF (The Greeting Farm) image called 'Cheeky Rockabilly' suited her perfectly. I found just the right printed paper from the DCWV It's All About Girls paper stack pack. The scalloped glittered oval was punched (Marvy) from DCWV glitter cardstock. I used the Spellbinders 'Circles' embossing plate to make the design on the light pink paper. Although it's hard to see the embossed 'Happy Birthday' cartouche-like label (holding the easel up), it has a retro feel because it was made using a Sizzix imrpession folder on a blue white core cardstock and then sanded to reveal the white. I think it matches well with the paper and the overall look of the card. Slowly, I am learning that one of the important aspects of card designing is picking the right papers and finding embellishments that match in both color and style. If you continue to observe other paper artist's work on their blogs or in magazines, you will constantly learn not only what is trendy but the little tricks which will make your work stand out. Keep learning every day!
