Deco Easel

Thank you all for visiting my blog and leaving lovely messages. It is so appreciated. Also a very warm welcome to my new crafty pals, I am so glad you wanted to join me.
Today’s card also started with a gift (yes another gift) this time some great papers with toppers that I could do in art deco style – a favourite of mine. I have balanced this with using one of my more extravagant purchases, believe me as soon as I saw this die it was a must have. This is only my second easel card ever so it took ages to make and is a bit fuzzy but I hope you still like it. The card is on it’s way to my non blogging pal who loves the same style as soon as I put a stamp on it. 

Image – Decoupage possibly from Nancy Watt.
Paper and card - card blank is a silver 6x6.
  the backing paper is from annamarie designs 6x6,
and hammered card from my special card/paper box.
The black stripes down the left edge are washi tape.
Dies used – Spellbinder Square and Square swatches
and the Die-monde Charles Rose.


  1. Good Morning Flora,
    Oh! My! Word! what a stunner, I love it.
    Love the style of the whole card and the beautiful colours.
    That Charles Rennie Mackintosh style Die is just beautiful, must have a look for that. There is a new exhibition opening in Glasgow to celebrate his work which I would love to get to.
    Have a Great Day

  3. Hi Flora, for your second easel card this is a WOW. Art Deco is one of my favourite periods and I just love the rose die, as Patricia says reminiscent of Macintosh. So lovely.

    Have a great day.
