My First Easel Card.. :)

I have been busy with school and stuff, and haven't had time to make cards lately... I'm so behind on all the birthday cards that I was supposed to make this past year! :( But here's one that I actually managed to make in the midst of all these homeworks. :) It's my first card that stands up! :)

Here's a closer view of how it looks from the front... I love House-Mouse! :) So cute, no? :) Colored with Prisma Color pencils.

I also really like how the present came out... I has Stickles over the ribbon, and Diamond Glaze on the yellow dots, so they pop. :) 

The inside:

I did not put much on the inside this time, because the card was meant to be propped up like in the first image. And I made the little drinks with Judikins shrink plastic... It's so cool! :D I'm always so excited to use it :D It's hard to cut stuff out though. Especially since the ink doesn't dry very well (before you heat it... but after that it's impossible to cut it into the needed shape, lol). Here's a close up:
