Grand Ovals

Having tried these Grand Nestabilities I am amazed as to how quick they are to layer up to make an amazing card.

They work especially well if you are using a favourite stamp which you intend to paint or colour and present as a piece of art.

For this example I cut out 6 Spellbinders Grand Ovals in descending sizes in cream and red card stock.

On the red base oval, I used some of the Edgeabilities, but you can use a punch to get this decorative edge.

 After I fixed the base red layer on top of one of the cream layers I set about making my easel card. 

Make a crease 1 inch from the bottom and another 3 inches from the top and bend in opposite directions - this will give you your easel. Attach the 1 inch fold to the top of the red and cream base layer. Then fix the bottom half of the next red layer to the easel. 
Build your layers on to the card front. 

I embossed one of the layers with the Special Touch Mica Mask – Leaves.

I stamped and embossed one of my favourite flowers, Amaryllis.
I then painted it with the luscious Cosmic ShimmerDazzle Paint Poppy Blush and left to dry. 

Using Spellbinders tag; I painted around the edge to get a perfect colour match to my flower and stamped a small sentiment.
Inside I chose a couple of matching brads to keep the easel in position.
