Mixed Bunch Easel Card

I vowed not to wait until the last minute to make Mother's Day Cards, like I seem to do for every holiday! So, here's my early start. I really love the way this card came out. It has so much texture and color. I think my Mom is going to love it. It's an easel card, one that stands up on its own. 

Here is a side view of the card so you can see what I mean. This card is so much easier to construct than it looks. Rather than go into detail to explain, I thought I would share the Stampin' Up! video tutorial. 

Wasn't that crazy-easy? I'll be making lots more easel cards in the future. Now to share the rest of the details...

The flower vase was made with an oval cut from the Ovals Die and one end trimmed off a tiny bit. The greeting was heat embossed with White Embossing Powder. Two layers of flowers were placed on top, one punched from solid color card stock, and the others were stamped and punched. Dimensionals separate each layer to give the arrangement some volume. Large Pearls are the perfect center.
