Magnolia Down Under - an easel card!

I'm back with my second post today! (scroll down for the first one)

My boys are starting preschool/kindergarden this week so there hasn't been much crafting time for me... My olderst who is 3 is starting his second year and my youngest who is almost 2 is starting his first, which is why I have spent a lot of time there. Then it's time for mummy to start working again after two wonderful years at home with the kids.

Last night I finished this card. I love making easel-cards but I thought I'd try something different so I lifted myself and developed an idea I tried before. This is for the challange at Magnolia Down Under and even if you don't participate at least check out the DT-work.... Absolutely gorgeous!!!




Why is it always so incredibly hard to photograph easel-cards????




The sentiments are in Swedish and the one with lots of text says something like "With your friendship there is always joy in my heart, light on my path and love in my soul" and the other one says "You're in my thoughts".





Close up on Edwin, one of my favorites... He lookes like a thinker, sitting there on his branch....




The embellishment.... I took an embossing pen and drew the pattern on the butterflies and then embossed it with gold.



So I hope you all have a lovely day and hope to se you back again soon!

Så läckert då han hamnar på kanten av kortet!
Ja, jag hoppas själv på att jag ska få en Dt möjlighet men hon kanske inte ens gillar mitt sätt att måla & göra kort så...jsg hoppas!!!

Hoppas att det går bra på förskolan för dina barn. Mina ska tillbaka på måndag. Min tös börjar 1:an på fredag...tiden går så fort!

Snygg ram du fått till :)

Helt enkelt underbart. Härlig liten funderande gosse. Färgerna var helt enkelt betagande och i fin harmoni.
