This is the first time I had ever made an easel card. It was very simple.
You can find a pattern here:
I used the paper parchment craft technique on vellum. First I stamped the medallion in white ink on the vellum. Then I dry embossed it from the back. This process turns the vellum white. I gently shaded some areas to make a soft white around the edges using a large embossing tool. Popped out a few sections with the single needle tool and added a few more needle pierces here and there. I colored the medallion (from the back) with marker. I trimmed out the medallion and mounted it on a dark green with sticky dots. The dots will show through so put them under an embossed or colored area.
