This is my first circular easel card.
First I made a basic 5" circle card blank from white cardstock, plus an extra circle the same size. I then mountain-folded the front of the card in half.
Using Papermania Capsule Collection Spots & Stripes Brights, I covered the bottom section in striped paper and the extra circle in yellow spotty paper.
For the image, I printed a free digi-stamp from Simply Cards & Papercraft (by Polkadoodles) and coloured it with pencil crayons. I made the sentiment by printing the wording within a surfboard shape, which I also coloured with pencil crayons. I gave the surfboard a little tab at the bottom so it would stand up.
I decorated the yellow circle around the edge with mini blossoms punched from two of the other patterned papers, with some petals over the edge of the card. I added another two of the blossoms to the surfer's hair using a mini brad, then attached the picture to the card using 3D foam squares.
I glued the yellow circle to the easel and attached a large yellow brad on the bottom of the card to make it stand up. Then I attached the surfboard sentiment by its tab at the front of the bottom section.
To finish off the card, I glued mini blossoms around the sentiment and added little gems to their centres.
