Shaped Easel Card

I couldn't seem to get a decent picture of this project, so I'm afraid I gave up trying. I hope you can see it clearly enough!
Over at Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog, the challenge is to make a shaped easel card. I made this Silver Wedding card for some of my friends, from some other of my friends. I've yet to make my own card for them.
The shaped part is made from Nesties, and by the time I had finished decorating the card, I realised that it was too fat for an envelope, so I had to make a box, which I embellished with a heart shaped monogram.
The embossing is with a tiny hearts Cuttlebug folder, the corners are also Cuttlebug (Vintage) and the flower was made with a variety of punches.
Over at the Shabby Tearooms the challenge this week is 'Let's make an impression', and Creative Card Crew's challenge is 'Diecuts' so this is for those challenges too!
I typed the sentiment on the computer.
I hope they like it!


  1. How could they not like it Chrissie?? It's absolutely stunning! The box will just make it extra special and will give the couple somewhere safe to keep it - because keep it they will. Thank you for joining us at Crafty Ann's for this challenge - oh, and the pic is fine, especially if you click on it and then you can see all the glorious details.
