With All My Heart Easel Cards

I've been seeing these easel cards all over blog land. My friend Risa creates some really beautiful ones. I've always been intimidated by this style of card, that is, until I watched this video tutorial on Dawn's blog. Boy are these EASY to make!! I love this type of card because it comes with its own stand. The cards I am sharing today are exact copies of what I saw on Dawn's video. I do see more easel cards in my future.

These colors remind of a box of chocolates...I can tell Valentine's Day is near!
Thanks for stopping by today!

Valentine candy

Beautiful cards, Barb!

I was scared of easel cards, too, until I tried one. They're fun and easy.

Hope yours is a wonderful week!

Oh how fabulous! I will have to check out the video. Your cards are wonderful! I'm glad you tried your hand at it.

I giggled at your box of chocolates comment. I have a pattern to literally crochet a box of chocolates. I SO wanted to create it, but won't get it done for this year. Maybe next! LOL

Hey Barb,
I love your easel styled Valentine cards! The color combo reminds me of chocolates and I'm loving the hearts♥
One word of warning, the easel cards are terribly addicting, at least I know that I ♥ them!
p.s. I have something for you on my blog:)
