Hi everyone!  A Cardathon was hosted by a forum group I belong to today.  I participated in it and learned a lot.  One of our members graciously led a real-time tutorial in making an easel card.  An easel card is a project I have never attempted before.  There were members from the States and other countries all participating at the same time.  Besides learning something (me, that is), we all got to chat at the same time. I am posting my first attempt at an easel card here.  I apologize for the quality of the photograph.  I have not yet been able to replace my digital camera, so this was taken with my computer.  I would appreciate any comments you may have....whether it is on how poorly the card photographed or my beginning attempt!!  Hope everyone has a great evening!



  1. I think it's great Ruby! Bravo on the camera improvisation!! Now that you've made one, easel cards will seem easy to make.

  2. Ruby, it's a wonderful card and for a photo through the computer, I think you did an outstanding job. Love the sentiment too. I'm so glad you joined in. Can't wait to make mine.

  3. We knew you could do it! Great job!!!
    Now I'm trying to get one done WHILE NURSING! Not so easy!!!
    Can't wait to see more!!!

  4. I think your easel card turned out beautiful, Ruby!! The picture doesn't look that bad G/F!!! So glad you played along!! Is that blue ink I see on your fingers!?! TeeHee!!!!

  5. Ruby, you did GRAET!!! I knew you could do it. Heck if I could do it anyone could. Great way to work around the camera issue too

  6. Ruby I'm sitting here with huge smiles hun! Your very first easel card turned out brilliantly!!
    And you know - it's great that you're covered in ink - remember - never trust a clean crafter!! Lol!xx

  7. Ruby Rocks!!! You did a fabulous job and I love the papers and the sentiment. How clever you are to get this photo with no digital. I sure would love to know how you did that.

  8. Hey Ruby! I think the buttons and the distressing are a perfect combination - It gives your Christmas/easel card a kind of shabby chic flair. . .;) Terrific job! :D MWAH!

  9.'s a beautiful card! Love the pp you used...unfortunately because you had to use your computer camera I can't tell the colors...can you fill me in?

  10. Very pretty!! I love your color choices and it photographed very well! Great thinking on how to improvise without your camera!

  11. Great job on the easel card girl! I have yet to be brave enough to try one. You nailed it! Love the peace stamp

  12. Fantastic card Ruby! I arrived here from SSC and am now following along :)
