To create this card I folded an A4 piece of white card to make an A5 landscape card, then folded the front half to make the easel.

I added the black textured paper to the front of the easel and after colouring the image I die cut this and added it to the front to the left.

I added the backing paper on the bottom half of the card, then mounted the sentiment onto a small piece of black textured paper, then added this to a slightly bigger piece of white cardstock. I then mounted this to the base of the card using foam pads to form the stopper.  I also added a black ribbon bow to the right-hand side just to balance the easel mechanism.

Finally, I fussy cut around the embossed jungle leaves and added them next to the topper and finished with a butterfly.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you like my DT make.
