Craftiness = Happiness by Jil Lebel

Hello Ai fans!

Today I used the Craftiness = Happiness mounted stamp from Hobby Lobby. My friend Char and I go way back.  In fact, we met on the internet in a rubber stamping e-mail group in June of 1998! It was only fitting that I had to get this stamp to celebrate the anniversary of us being friends for 20 years.
This particular card is a birthday card.  I used a greeting from Office Party Set 4998. The two combined great to make this fun easel card.

The image is stamped with My Favorite Things Intense Black ink onto Spectrum Noir paper and colored with Copic markers.  The colors are listed below.  The panel is cut out and mounted onto a standard sized card panel.  The patterned papers I used are Picnic Table from Recollections.
 It was very simple to turn the standard A2 card base into an easel card.  An A2 card is a 9" x 51/2" piece of card stock scored at 41/4".  To turn it into an easel card, just score it at 21/8 on one flap.  Then you will need to attach your decorative panel to only the bottom half of the easel.  I added some rose trim to hold everything up once the card is opened.  I also stamped the sentiment inside. 

Copic Colors used:
Faces - E000, E00, E11, E04, R20
Hair - E30, E31, E33, E35, E37, C1, C3, C5
Blue - B00, B32, B34
Green - YG61, YG63, YG67
Yellow - Y11, Y32, Y35
Pink - R81, R83, R85
Orange - Y35, YR14
Grey - C1, C3, C5
Brown - E30, E31, E33, E35

Thanks for stopping by and Have a Great Day!
