Easel Card With Textured Flowers

Hello.  Welcome.  Gail from the design team here today with a project using the new Textured Flowers stamps.  I loved these the moment I saw them.  Big beautiful blooms.  And many smaller stamps for adding leaves and texture.  

I decided to make a Twisted Easel Card.  There are many tutorials available but I used this one by Lois.  So here's my card using Textured Flowers and of course, a giraffe..........



I was inspired by the Rubber Dance challenge colours which for June are:



I stamped the large simple daisy, masked and stamped two more. 



I added the giraffe from African Animals.  I think I'll call her Daisy.



I thought it looked a bit empty so I stamped more daisies......



and coloured with distress and dye inks. 



I stamped and embossed three of the doodled flowers and the giraffe, fussy cut and added them to my panel.  I used brads and a Cheery Lynn die cut for the flower centers.  I also doodled a little faux stitching around the edge.



I mounted the panel on my easel base and decorated inside the card.



I used one of the doodle flowers for my 'stop'.  I cut some of the petals off and added them to the top for more dimension.
