This is what it looks like all flat and ready to be mailed! However, once you take it out of the envelope just look at the tricks it does!! LOL
It does this...!
It is a 4 x the easel easel card!! Isn't this just the cutest little thing!!!
It props up using the little stoppers and just holds itself there! I was so darn excited about this card! Here are some of the particulars:
Stamps: Bloom with Hope (new hostess set!!)
Paper: Pink Pirouette and Pear Pizzazz
Ink: Melon Mambo
Punches and Dies: Small Butterfly, Itty Bitty Accessories pack and Polka Dot EF
Extras: Dimensionals and Rhinestones
I was so excited about this that I just had to make another! I love how it turned out even though it clashes with my blog! LOL Here is the second one that I made:
Here it is all flat!
Here it is all easel-ed up!
Panel #2 (probably my favorite panel!)
All easel-ed up!
I really love this card! It goes together very quick and easy too!
I will include the directions here: (These are for the first example. I added a third layer to the second card)
You will need two colors!
From color #1 cut:
(1) 5 3/4” x 5 3/4” piece for base
(4) 2 1/2” x 2 1/2” pieces
(4) 2 1/2” x 5” pieces
(score at 1 1/4” and 2 1/2”)
From color #2 cut:
(1) 5 1/2” x 5 1/2” piece for layer #2
(4) 2 1/4” x 2 1/4” pieces
*Fold your (4) scored pieces on their score lines.
*Stamps and decorate your (4) 2 1/4” x 2 1/4” as desired and then adhere them to the 2 1/2” x 21/2” pieces.
*Find the center of your 5 1/2” x 5 1/2” piece and mark it with a dort.
*Start with one of your scored and folded pieces and line it up on the bottom left hand side of your 5 1/2” x 5 1/2” piece using the mark you just made as a guide. Lay out the next piece by rotating it and touching the top right corner to the top right corner of the first piece and repeat with all four pieces. Once you have then lined up adhere them in place.
*Put adhesive on the bottom half of each of your decorated pieces and adhere them to the last segment of each scored piece.
*Create stoppers of your choice on the base of the card to catch each piece once you have put it in the easel position .
*Folds flat for mailing!
Just holler if you get stuck or if you have any questions!
