Twist of Faith #52 - Easel / Pop-up Cards

I'm such a basic person.  My cards are always the "Plain Jane" type - more basic, and always the basic A2 size.  When I saw the challenge for Twist of Faith this week was "Easel or Pop-up Cards" - I started shaking in my shoes!  I've never done anything like that.  But one of the neat things about being on Design Teams is that I'm pushed out of my comfort zone.  So I waited until the last minute but last night after work made my very first Easel card.  Our sponsor this week is Eureka Stamps - and that just happens to be one of my favorite stamp companies!  I used a digi called "Fall Set of 4".  Yep, there are 4 stamps in that set but I only used one - the pumpkin.  I guess I'm into Fall cards now that it's the unofficial last week of summer.  So what do you think of my first try:



Ok, so now I want to see yours!  Give me ideas for this new-to-me card because I know you all have made them before and are such amazing artists!  Stop on over at Twist of Faith this week and share your talent.  Thanks for stopping by today.  Blessings to you and your family.

Good on you Zella for stretching yourself! Your card is terrific.
Keep playing barefoot and then you won't need to worry about your shoes.

Zella...I'm glad I wasn't the only one shaking in my shoes when I saw the easel card challenge! LOL. Your card is stunning and turned out beautifully...and had you not confessed to it being the first I know I would have never guessed!

Hi Zella, Your first easel-pop up card turned out fantabulous. I absolutely love your coloring and color combination used to make the pumpkin image pop so beautifully.
You are a Blessing.
