Safari 3D Easel Card

I'm excited to share something different with you today.
It's a 3D Easel Birthday card!

This is the face of the card.  I made mine 7" wide and 5.25" tall.

This adorable, quick, and easy to make "printable" card
comes from the design work of Barbara Clooney.

since 2002, and has a "store" at Aimee Asher.

I really enjoy making this type of card,
especially when I need something different and in a hurry!
Barbara supplies all the instructions needed to make it a fun experience for you.

Here is a side view showing you all the detail in the layering.

I hope you can see the glitter I added around the tree leaves and the boy's hat.
I used a Martha Stewart glitter pen
to give the headlights some pzazz, then used Glossy Accents
to give dimension and gloss.  I, also,
added black half pearls, here and there,
and an orange bird to one of the trees.

What little one wouldn't love this very colorful and FUN card?
I have several grandsons, so this will, no doubt, go to one or more of them this year!

When one opens the card, this is what you will see!

It's a wonderful safari card, that is easily embellished as you wish.

It even comes with a designed envelope (this is the front).

I chose to print mine from 110 lb card stock (same as the card).

Here's the back of the envelope and the front of the card.

Isn't it sweet??

Thank you for coming by to see what I've made.

I pray your day will be Blessed beyond your imagination!
