MY CAMEO TRIPLE-TIER EASEL CARD PREVIEW...

Hello family-friends!!!  Happy Wednesday, and I hope you're all well and having fun!

Wow, I'm just consumed by my Silhouette Cameo so, if I'm tardy getting here and/or around the neighborhood, please excuse me -- I'm just like any other kid with a brand new toy! LOL!!!

For awhile I've wanted to do one of these triple-tier easel cards but every instruction I saw was in metric, so I told myself to forget it.  However, having my Cameo and taking as close a look as I could at ones on the internet, I ventured to do one on my own.  After wasting many sheets of paper and numerous cuts, I finally think I got it figured out -- how easy it ended up too!!!  I did them by welding doilies together in Silhouette Studio that I found on the internet.  I haven't finished this one yet, so I haven't added a sentiment or much embellishment; just a few bows, roses, and paper panels I embossed on colorbloc paper and sanded -- love how the white peaks through the embossing!!!  Once I decide the occasion and who it'll go to, I'll finish dressing it.  Well, tell me how I did -- here's your preview of the front of my card (click of enlarge, of course):

 
Here's what it looks like from the side:

 
And here's what it looks like folded and ready to be placed in a box or envie:

 
It may not be perfect like some of the others I've seen but I'm no pro; however, I love how it turned out!!!
 
Here a peek at another one I just finished cutting and putting together:

 
Well, I'm off again!!!  Hope you like my cards!
 
Hugs, love-love you all, have a happy day and...
 
I'll be seeing you!!!

How beautiful, Andrey!
Dear, you musn't be worried if you cannot visit my blogs often, I know everybody has many tasks and daily problems that they have to solve and take all the time. I don't post much lately either, cause I have a new blog about the subject "Science-Faith" and this take much time too. I leave here below the link. It's in Spanish, sorry :-( but you can find a translator in the sidebar on the right.
