Fashionable Present Easel Card

These fashion girls by Penny Black are so Chic!, They need very little added to them to make a card! I wanted to make Fashionably Wrapped 4212L the focus of the card and so decided to make it an easel design.

I stamped her onto white card and coloured with copics, the fluff on her dress was from pinflair snow.
I coloured the parcel with an airbrush (masking the bow and legs etc.) and then overstamped with Retro Pattern 40-086.  

It is hard to see in the photo, but the background was then lightly stamped with the Holly from forest friends 40-077  and then the sentiment from Winter wonders 30-087.  The card is held up in it's open positon by positioning 3 brads where the holly berries are stamped. 

Here is a view of the card folded flat ready to go in the envelope.

Thanks for visiting today and all your comments.

Very chic Cathy! The present looks gorgeous with the Retro Pattern. I like how you used the three brads for the easel to be propped upon when open.

Wonderful idea to make an easel card with this adorable image, Cathy! Love the pattern on the gift and the added fluff on her dress is such a fun touch!
