Easel Card

Hello bloggers :) - I have been asked to make a card for a third birthday and before seeing the Polka Doodles Blog competition decided to make this:

To be honest I am a very lazy/boring card maker as I always seem to follow the same type of card - rectangular or square - and avoid the fancy folds.  However, I have recently got a bit fed up with card making which I think was due to my mammouth card making session for a craft fair back in March. 

So I have set myself a challenge of trying to do different shaped/fancy folds on my cards to see if I can get my mojo back :)

For this card I printed papers from the All Around and Everywhere - Polka Doodles CD and then used my trusty Cricut (with Sure Cuts Alot) to cut the card and embellishments.  I used Create a Critter for the Bear and Doodle Type font.  I am pleased with the result and now have an idea for a boys easel card too - so maybe this change of card style is working :)

Thanks for looking in.  Vxx
