CS Designs–Willamina And Her Wand

Well, it’s snowing like crazy here, and I decided to use some bold and bright colors on my card today, sort of chase away the winter blues!!  This adorable image is from CS Designs, and it’s called “Willamina And Her Wand”.  She is a new release by Chris Stern owner of CS Designs.

Well, am I right or what!  She is so darn adorable!  I hope you will check out CS Designs, you will fall in love with them!

So, instead of making just a card, I figured this digi deserved something better.  I decided to make a Surprise Pop Up Easel Card.  The picture above is the card closed.

So here is the “Pop Up” part, and a surprise sentiment on the inside.  I found the tutorial for this on YouTube, I just decided to  make the card bigger.

The digital image was colored with copics.  I added some punched out stars to her shirt, to co-ordinate with her hair and wand.    I stitched around the layers with pink thread.  The rose bud was made with left over card stock.  The card actually opens, so that you can write or add another sentiment on the inside.  The easel part is connected to a tag with ribbon, and when you pull out the tag, the image stands up.   I hope you will give this easel card a try, it was fun to do. It takes a bit longer to make, but worth the extra effort!
