Easel Does it......

Many of you by now have probably seen these stunning things called Easel cards. They can be done any size you long as your base is twice the "face" of the card. The basics can be found here (for square ones) and here (for rectangular ones).
I was blessed enough to receive the wonderful "Great friend" SU stamp set fm my blog buddy Tanya (whose blog u can access on my blog roll). I thought I would combine my new stamp set, easel card and my MIL's b'day all in one. I got the inspiration from here and CASE'd the card. The result is as follows.

My MIL loved the card so much that she asked me to do another two!! I'll post them later.

Cardstock: Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red, Whisper White and Bella Rose DSP
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss, Pink Pirouette.
Stamp Set: Great Friend, Sincere Salutations.
Accessories: Crimper, Rhinestones, Dimensionals, Lg Oval and Scallop Oval Punch
