Happy Birthday, Gorgeous - easel too

If today's cards look familiar, it's because I gave my seaside easel card (from the JAI362 colour challenge) a couple of mini makeovers. I love seeing how a simple change can create a different look & hope you do too. First up is this birthday card.

I used dapper denim for the base & happy birthday sentiment, which gives more contrast against the seaside panel and a more masculine look.

The brilliant adirondack chair from the Seasonal Layers die set (cut with regular card & backed with the thick card that backs our paper packs) is popped it up on dimensionals.

I also stamped each of the sections in full strength ink, rather than stamping off, as I did on the original. You can see the difference this makes here when you see both card fronts together.

Easel Card Too

I really liked the boldness of the dapper denim birthday sentiment, so I changed up the original easel card for my Happy Birthday, Gorgeous class. Here's how it looks flat.

and with the easel popped up.

We brayered & stamped this one on shimmery white card & it gave such a lovely look. I also changed the bottom panel to include more sponge brayered peekaboo peach to coordinate with the sand at the bottom of the front. I added a banner (popped up on dimensionals) to make the easel easy to stand up. 

So what do you think about the changes? I hope you've enjoyed seeing these variations & hope they give you some ideas. Thanks for visiting today. I'll be back soon with some other easy ideas to change up a look using Happy Birthday, Gorgeous.

Inky wishes, Di
