This easel card measures 5.5 x 5.5. To make the base cut a piece of card stock 5.5 x 11. Score the card at 5.5 and 8 3/8. Cut another square 5.5 x 5.5 for the front of the card. The image for the front of the card is on page 25 of the Hey Diddle Diddle handbook. This was printed and cut @ 5. I printed the image combined twice and then cut the layers. I embossed the fence using an embossing folder by Craft concepts Woodgrain. I printed the fence twice. I cut the post off one of the images so I could emboss them the opposite way from the railings and to also raise them by using pop dots. One of the full images I cut the grass section off then ran that through an embossing folder by Cuttlebug 'Caramelo'. I inked the embossing folder using Vera Color ink 34 Orchard and 134 Petal Pink. I used the deboss side of the folder. I coloured the centre of the flowers using a pink gel pen. I applied Glossy accents to each flower to add dimension. I used glitter from Pink Paislee to embellish the cloud, the body and wool layers of the lamb. I also used Glossy accents on the lambs face. To make the Welcome sign I used the layer feature on page 13 of the handbook and used colours from the color palette. The word Welcome was cut from the image on page 27 of the handbook. The word welcome was adhered using pop dots onto the flag. The left side of the flag was adhered flat onto the fence post and I used pop dots on the right side to adhere it to the card. I tied the bow using a bow maker by docrafts. The bow was adhered to the fence using high tack tape. For the inside of the card I cut a piece of card 2.5 x 5 1/4. The words Little One was cut from the layer image on page 27 in the handbook. The base that the words are adhered to I used the icons available on the cartridge and selected the light pink from the color palette. This was cut @ 2.3 and I trimmed the top and bottom for a better fit. I used pop dots to adhere this assembled piece onto the pink card. I adhered the pink card to the inside base of the card using foam tape. To finish of the card I joined two white flowers together with a pink split pin and then used a pop dot to adhere it on the card.
