Anniversary Easel Cards

If you don't know it already, I'm a little OCD! I can't seem to change the type of anniversary cards that I make except on a yearly basis! And "my" year doesn't start in January either! It starts in October.

Why, you ask? Because that is when my BFF's anniversary is (and my sister's was, as well, but not anymore), so I start with them! So then everybody else I know, gets a card with something of the same theme...
like last year - Oct2010 to Sept2011 - everybody got cards made with the CTMH Miracle paper (retired), but I didn't take any photos of them. :(

This year (Oct2011 thru this coming Sept) I started by making both of them Double-Twisted Easel Cards. If you'd like to see those cards, check them out here and here.  

So this year, everybody is getting an easel card whether it's a regular easel, a twisted-easel, or a double easel. And all, except those first 2 double-easel cards, will be 6x6 and done with CTMH Floral Impressions paper (retired)! I've posted a few of them below:

grey flannel base and olive mat with double amethyst layered butterflies

olive base with gold mirricard mats and double-layered butterflies

This next one has the same olive and gold,
and the butterflies are still 2 layers but inked with olive
on gypsy and the other as gypsy on olive!

These 3 are the same - olive base with gold mirricard with
the opposite inked 2 layer butterflies. The center
card just has a different greeting shape and configuration.

I also decided to do a wedding card as 5x7 easel:
This one has amethyst as the base and silver mirricard mats.

This final one here is done on an amethyst base as well,
but has purple mirricard mats!

I'm loving this Mirricard! If you click on the photos to see them bigger, you can see how really "mirror-like" it is by the reflections you can see.
It is so pretty!

The flowers are painted with Lindy's Stamp Gang Magical Micas, just like the posts of the double-twisted easel cards I mentioned above.

I'll post some 6x6 twisted-easels soon, so come back and check them out!
Thanks for stopping by today! I'm glad you came :)
