Good morning Skipping Stones Design fans!!
Wendy Jordan here to share with you an easy tutorial making an “easel” card.
If you follow my blog, you may have seen a couple of these in the last few weeks. I am just loving the ease and something a bit different in size.
The supplies you will need to get going is a die cutting machine, a scalloped round die, and any other sized dies you would like for embellishing, coordinating cardstock and stamps. I chose Skipping Stones Designs, Whispering Wings.
Cut your base cardstock 4.5 x 9, and score in half. We are going to cut the scalloped circle out of the folded cardstock. You want to place the die, just a bit off the top edge, as seen in the photo. The card will be able to have a top fold. Cut one single scalloped circle also.
Here are all the die cuts that I will use on my card. The three circles are what I will use for mats and embellishing.
I have taken the top fold of the scalloped circle die cut and folded the top in half as seen above. This will be the base of your “easel”.
Double sided tape adhered to the folded “back” of the top of the scalloped circle.
The second scalloped circle die cut is then adhered to the double sided tape, becoming the front of the card.
I stamped an flower image from Whispering Wings and adhered it to the card as a “stopper” for the front of the card.
Here is a side view of the Scalloped Circle Easel card.
I colored all of the images from Whispering Wings with these Copic Markers.
Here is the front of the card in a closed postition.
The completed card! This is such a fun card to make!!
Give one a try!!! You will be amazed at how easy it is!!
Have a great day!
