Computer Easel Card

This weeks challenge on Daring Card Makers was: Going Geek (with a prize from Imagine That - naturally, as a self-confessed geek, I couldn't let this pass without making something! And combining it with C.R.A.F.T Challenge #155 - Easel Card gave me the perfect idea that was too good to pass up!

I copied the text from a reboot screen and edited it for a Birthday themed card and printed, along with a keyboard image. Used black card as my mount, sponged in the blue highlights and stamped and coloured the balloons with a sky blue promaker, adding a couple of brads to hold it in place.

I am also submitting this for:
- Crafty Card Makers #68 - Birthday Balloon Bonanza
- Lexi's Creations - Black and White plus one other colour (blue)

  10. This is brilliant, I love your take on an easel card. When it's closed does the outside of the card look like a laptop lid? (I'm nosy sorry) The reboot screen edit is genius and the touch of blue on the balloons looks fab.

    Thanks for sharing with us at Crafty Cardmakers.
