Sail Away Twisted Easel Card
Okay so here is the deal. I have seen many of these easle cards and they are not something I was really all that interested in them then my friend and fellow stamper showed me one of the twisted easle cards you can see hers her blog http://www.gloriasgreetings.blogspot.com/ and I fell in love ( with the card ...smile)
Now if you go to the gallery on splitcoaststampers you are going to find that a great portion of the cards sampled are the square 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 cards and one of the larger fronted cards is Glorias and I personally liked it much better than the square and for a couple reasons....1) it is a standard shape card that fits in the regular standard envelopes....2) you can mail it where the smaller square is not ideal for mailling. Okay and one more reason I like decorating the front of a standard card.
Lastly this card when we made it in the class I after putting this one together thought it would look a little nicer with some brads in each of the corners so that the white did not look so bare, we put not quite navy brads but the silver brads would have looked lovely as well.
I sure hope that you liked it and thanks so much for stopping by
