Double Diamonds works wonders
Do you remember that advert 'Double Diamond works wonders' ? It was for a beer, way back, and when I made this diamond easel card that little catchphrase sprang to mind. Pastel colours are my comfort zone so I went for a selection rather than just the one, layered using the Double pierced Squares die sets both A and B. This gives a very narrow, 1/8th" border all the way round which I personally really like.
The centre piece is made from Maggie, she is so delicate! Behind Maggie I have used a couple of Beaded Flourishes and then the flowers come from the Petite Peony cluster set with some crystal gems in similar colours to the card I used
Look at the fine detail of Maggie, its so pretty. For the centre, I cut the outer circle from Coconut White card and added a piece of double sided adhesive sheet and used Diamond Sprinkles allover before adding the final lattice circle. Lots of dimension achieved with mounting cushion.
All easel cards need an anchor to hold the easel up and the Petite Peony Cluster die fits the job just perfectly. Adding the extra peony flowers, again all from this die set on the top of the cluster to form a secure anchorage. In this last photo you can clearly see how close together the borders can be when using the two sets of Double Pierced square dies together.
