Hello D2BA Friends!

Happy Sunday!!

We have another Guest Designer joining us this month!

Today, please help me welcome Melinda!!


Hello crafty friends, my name is Melinda Beltran from and I am super excited to be a Guest Designer for Dare 2 B Artzy this month. I have been scrapbooking and paper crafting for several years and enjoy it immensely. Here is my first project share.

I think my favorite type of card to make is the easel card. It is a quick variation of the standard card and it allows for the recipient to display the work of he(ART)! I created this festive easel card featuring the Holiday Village Stamp set.

I created the card base and cut it out with my electric die cut machine. I then stamped the images and colored it with my various Copic markers. You can’t really tell, but I did also color the background lightly with some very light blue colored pencil.

I also added some glitter to various elements and then added some tiny pearl embellishments. I also used my Nuvo Crystal Drops to create the white accents around the scalloped edges.

Here is one closer look. You really can’t see the glitter too much but it is there!

Here is a side view of the card standing up. To finish the inside layers, I stamped the sentiment along with some of the tiny music note stamps included in the set on a label to create a support for the easel to stand up behind it.


I am sharing the SVG File I created here on the Dare 2 B Artzy Blog only and for a limited time. So be sure to pick it up while you can! Then head over to the Dare2BArtzy shop and purchase the stamp and you can make your own card too!
