Crazy About You!


It's my day to post on the Jinger Adams blog, and I have a pretty Valentine to share with you!  I used one of Jinger's Pop-Out Easel Cards, which are so easy to use, since they are all put together!  You just need to layer on some pretty papers!

I started by adhering a 5" x 6" piece of kraft cardstock to the card.  I then took a pretty 5 1/2" x 5" piece  of patterned paper from Jinger's Gypsy Queen collection, and stitched it to a 5 3/4" x 5" piece of black cardstock before adhering it to my base.


Now for the fun embellishments!  The XOXO strip was cut with my Cameo at 0.5".  I then made a clipboard using My Creative Time's Honey Do List and stamped it with a sentiment from MCT's Lots of Love.  The heart tickets are another Silhouette cut, and I cut them at 1" before stamping them with a sentiment from MCT's 100% Sweetness.  I added various cork and cardstock hearts cut with MCT's Stitched Heart Layering Dies and the Stitched Scallop Heart Die Set before adhering a gorgeous lace heart doily from Jinger Adams.


The bottom of the easel card is 2" x 6".  I just adhered the same types of layers as the top, and then added another border strip cut with the Silhouette.
