Merci - Danke - Thanks Cuddlers - Easel Pear

Yogi here today with an easel thanks card. I figure since my Xmas cards are all done, envelopes created and mailed it was time to make some thank you cards that will be needed soon...

I'm using a couple A Way With Words dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs "Merci" and "Danke" also available on Quietfire Design HERE and HERE

I'm also using a sentiment stamp set from Quietfire Design "Thanks - Cuddlers" 7pce set

Scored, and folded my dark green textured cardstock to create the easel.

Created the watercolor pear (Penny Black) using my Misti and Distress mini pads, misting with water and stamping on 90#HP Arches watercolor paper.. Repeating the process till I got the intensity of color I wanted, then used a moist paint brush to move some of the color. Used a Derwent watercolor pencil for the background blue color, then moved it with a very wet brush. Dried, then splattered with some brownish color. Die cut with Elizabeth Craft Designs "Stitched Ovals" set. Created a larger oval of the die and cut with my electronic cutter. Colored with a red Distress pad, adhered both layers together then onto the front.

Die cut the "Merci" from a burgundy colored cardstock (Dreamweaver packaging material...) Adhered to front. Used a Quickie Glue pen and added decorative line detail, then sprinkled with Ritz micro fine glitter "Regal Red".
On the Floor: Die cut the "Danke" from a green and a white cardstock. Inked the green one with Versamark and embossed with Emerald Creek "Yuletide" embossing powder. Adhered off set to the white layer. Adhered it by the bottom edge to a narrow piece of the green cardstock, scored down the center and adhered one edge tot he floor to act as my stopper.

Wrote in the words "Any way you say it" with a pointed pen and my diluted Copic White Opaque ink in my funky monoline style.

Stamped the sentiment on white cardstock using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossing. Die cut with Spellbinders oval die set, sponged edges with a dirty green sponge and adhered to floor with 3D foam tape.

As a final touch, added a row of pale green gems (Dollorama) around the oval and a dark green/gold Sari bow.
