Finally, I made an easel card, and it was easy; well at least the easel part was! I had the same technical difficulties usually experienced with making a card. Didn't cut the image large enough at first, cut the wrong color for the layers, paper shifted on me because my mat is worn, yada yada yada. BUT, in the end here's what I produced!
All cardstock was from scraps. Used the Block Party cartridge to cut the rocket which wound up being 5-1/2" with layers. Used glitter glue to sparkle the explosion and the rocket. The sentiments are a Studio G $1 stamp. The white paper inside is punched with Fiskars Americana 3-in-1 punch, and the blue paper is punched with Fiskars In Stitches border punch (I think I love this new punch!). How did I do?
I want to enter this card into the following challenges (there's so many going on this weekend!!):
