For the main image of my card, I used the new Humphrey Party Time stamp set. I just love how versatile this cute little elephant is! I colored him using Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and added Stickles to his hat and spots on his overalls. A clown has got to have a little bling. The fun little banner was cut from the Cricut Birthday Bash cartridge, and I added a couple rhinestones to each flag. The paper is Graphic 45's Le Cirque collection.
To hold the Easel card up, I added a row of grey pearls to the top of the lower portion of the card. I stamped the "Party Time" sentiment from the stamp set a few times as well. I also hand cut a banner shaped image so I could included a personalized message. A few more pearls on that completed the card.
One of the really cool parts of this project is that you can make a matching thick envelope to match your card. This one is about an inch in depth and 6 1/4 x 6 1/4 in length. You can see how I've put the card in it.
I hope you enjoyed this project and are inspired to create something fun and three-dimentional.
