For this card I have used an 8 x 8 card base. To make it into the easel card you need to fold one side of the card in half. For the base I have used red card to matt & layer, followed by white card that I have printed out with the fizzy moon character on it from my Serif craft artist program. I then matted & layered the “I love you” and used foam pads to raise it up. I stuck this to the base of my card.

To make the top part of the card you need to cut a piece of card stock 8 x 8 then stick this to the outside half fold on the card. Your card will then stand up. I use the same matching fizzy moon card that I had printed off to do the next layer.
To frame my cross stitch I used one of my Spellbinders Nestabilities Standard Circles (LG) S4-114 with the largest die from Spellbinders Nestabilities/Majestic Elements Marvelous Squares S4-383. This made a frame for my cross stitch. I stuck my cross stitch to the frame.

I then cut four corners from Creative Expressions Craft Dies By Sue Wilson Corners Border & Tag Dies Californian Collection CED1102 in red card. I glue two of them to the back of my framed cross stitch. The other two corners I used foam pads on the back to raise them and placed them in opposite corners. I use foam pads on the cross stitch frame and placed this in the middle of the card.

I used a piece of white tulle under my flowers. I used the Creative Expressions Craft Dies By Sue Wilson Classic Rose Dies Finishing Touches Collection CED1407 to create the rose’s on my card. I used my acrylic glue on the rose and covered it with iced snow glitter jewels. I then glue them to my card. I added a bow made from the Creative Expressions Craft Dies By Sue Wilson 3D Classic Itty Bitty Bows CED1408 in the corner of the card. I added some pearl hearts from my stash to the “I love you” in the corners.
