A little while back (for the life of me I can't find the post) Jill had sent me a card and then the goodies to make one myself, she had mentioned that she and another lady do this as a surprise for one another every now and then and that I didn't have to do it she just thought she would share, I told her when I have free time I would like to do it. I have so many that I send birthday cards to and then I send those unexpected get well, sympathy ect.
Well I had caught up with all of that so I decided I would make her a double easel card and cut the same things out that I had used on her card so that she could make one for herself. I have seen these double and even triple easel cards and so I wanted to figure out how I could make one using the dies I already have, and I wanted it to fit in an A2 size envelope. I found these dies to give it a try, and it actually worked :)
Instead of me trying to explain how to do the fold I am sure if you google Easel cards you can figure it out. I had done a regular easel card before so all it was I did was made two one smaller than the first and set them inside one another, a triple would be just adding a smaller one but like I said I wanted her to be able to send it in an A2 size envelope.
I popped up the sentiment tag so that it would easily hold up the 2nd easel.
I glued the flowers onto yellow paper and then added a little shading with my markers, and cut them out.
- Spellbinders - Curved Rectangles die
- Graphic 45 - Le Cirque paper
- ODBD - Mini tags and mini tag sentiments stamp
- Tim Holtz - Sizzix - Crochet die
- Memory Box - Pennington Rose Blossoms die
- Martha Stewart - leaf punch
- Crafters Companion - White pearls
Here is how it looks closed.
The funny thing is that we must have been thinking about each other about the same time because she had sent me another sweet card and they had to have passed in the mail because we received each others pretty close together :) So I will be sharing what I do with that one soon :)
We are supposed to get more snow tonight but only 1-3 inches so not too bad. To all my East Coast friends I hope you stay safe through the next storm!
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by,
