Easel Box Card

Hello All!

I have seen a couple of these when entering challenges, and thought I have to make one!  That was a WHILE back.  This looks like a very intimidating card to make, but surprisingly, it's rather easy!  I looked on the net, and got this link : http://joaniscardsmadebyhand.blogspot.com/2010/06/easel-box-tutorial.html for the tutorial.  So I went ahead and did it!  I feel  so proud of myself.  Isn't this just perfect for Mother's day!  

Some of the supplies used :
Nellie Snellen punches
Flat back pearls
Some paper ribbon and lace
Cuttlebug - birds and swirls - I have many folders, but this one is by far my favourite!
Charm bought from a local shop
Sarah Kay Stamp - so cute!
Chalk Ink



For the image I used the following Copics :
E000, E00, E04, E11, E18, E25, E31, E33, E35, E37, E51 (hair, shoes and basket)
YG00, YG03 (Apples)
G07, G00 (grass)
Y19, Y21, Y000 (yellow part of dress)
YR02, YR00, YR000 (apron)



Oh yes.  I altered the size on the tutorial.  Wanted it a bit bigger!

1.  7 Kids College Fund - Spring
