First I found a clip art flower outline and created the easel template using Photoshop. I then printed this at 15cm, 12cm and 9cm along with separate flowers the same sizes and cut them all out. I also inked the easels with black ink to disguise the print outlines.
Next I chose three spotty papers and glued them to the bottoms of the easels, then three stripy papers and glued them to the separate flowers. I inked all the edges with black to tie in with the rest of the easel.
To decorate the smallest flower I glued two big bloomers and a button to the separate flower before glueing it to the easel stand. I then glued ribbon, buttons and a bow to the bottom.
For the middle flower I stuck two Glitterations candles to the top left then glued two ribbons at angles across the middle. I added a couple of bows and Glitterations sentiment to finish off before glueing the flower to the easel stand.
To decorate the largest flower I added a Glitterations sentiment to a notelet and some mini buttons down the side. I created a ribbon flower using 5cm lengths, folded and glued to a button. I glued this to the bottom of the notelet then attached it to the flower with 3D foam pads.
Once all the easels were decorated I glued them together at the bottom. Starting with the smallest flower, they can all be laid flat for posting.
I would like to enter this card into the follwing competitions:
