Mary Engelbreit Easel Birthday Card

A good friend of mine is a fan of Mary Engelbreit and for many years I would look for fun ME gift items to give to her. Several months ago, one of the SVG companies I get newsletters from, My Scrap Chick, started selling Mary Engelbreit SVG files. I knew immediately I wanted to make the Ann Estelle file for my friend for her birthday. I just sent it off to her and thought you might like to see how it turned out. I used my Silhouette Cameo and the Designer Edition Studio program.  Feel free to click on the photos to enlarge them if you want a closer look.



The file I purchased had  bonus files included to make the easel card, chunky envelope and liner. The envelope is 6x6 in size, which gives you an idea of the size of the card. It also included printable tags. I just had to dig through my stash to find the colors of cardstock I wanted to use(mostly Close to My Heart, but also some Recollections and American Crafts. 

I had a lot of fun putting this one together.
Thanks so much for stopping by! 
I hope you have a great weekend.

Ooooh, boy, is your friend ever going to be over-the-moon tickled with this ME easel card, Jeanne! It is so fun and so colorful, even the envie is adorable!!

Thank you for following and for your lovely comments! I'm happy to have you joining the fun in the Playouse. Your blog is a happy place! I'm not into scrapping, but I do love seeing people's layouts. And, BTW, you ARE too hard on yourself about your watercoloring! I think your underwater background on your fishie card is terrific; love that card! And thanks for the link to Barb. I think I may have met her through the class.

Enjoy the day! Hugs, Darnell
