The Twelve Days of Christmas non Christmas easel card

Hi everyone :-)
Made this card as a birthday card for a dear friend. The  The Twelve Days of Christmas 12 x 12 collection from Graphic 45 is so gorgeous and there are so many beautiful images to cut out that also can be used for non Christmas projects. The card measures 8 x 6 .

Made it as a easel card and used the backside of the 12 x 12 paper bad and core`dinations signature series for the base. Also used Marianne design bench and umbrella die. Sky die (sorry don`t remember the brand )
All images and mats are sealed with Claudine Hellmuth Multi Matte. Distressed with white paint dabber from Tim Holts and white pan Pastel. 

In the inside I made a mat with Spellbinders die and to hold the top up I punched out a strip with Martha Stewart punch and scored at a 1/2 inch so it stands up. Glued on a lace behind.

Made a tag that can be taken out and it is attach with leaf trim. Seam binding for the bow.

Used distress stickles from Tim Holtz on the umbrella, flowers, sky and bird punch out from Martha Stewart.
Pan pastel red tint to color the mat. 

Picture without the tag

Thanks for stopping by and have fun creating :-)
Hugs, Anne
