Lily Easel Pocket Card With Tags

 Good morning crafty friends!

 Card size:  5 1/8” X 6 7/8”

Cut a shaped card base (see video), score right side again at the halfway point between center fold and outside edge of base to form easel. Cut blue decorative paper for inside easel base.  Cut another card Front from white and from blue decorative paper then glue front to bottom half of easel front only. Cut another front with an extended folded 1” flap at top (same as if it were a shaped card base), glue the 1” flap to the back of card front (this will make a shaped flap for the pocket you will create), cut the panel (after gluing blue paper on) with the plain edge of the Curvy Decorative Border a little lower than halfway down.

Cut another card front with matching blue paper then cut this panel with a straight edge a little higher than the center (this will be the pocket bottom), glue it to the easel front om the bottom and 2 sides only (leave top open as pocket).  Now cut 2 tags for the pocket and close top flap. 

Cut the Decorative border from white and from silver, glue together off-set then glue to the top curved edge of flap.

Cut the Flourish Companion decorative die from white and from silver 2 times.  Glue sets together. Glue one set to the inside of easel card.  Cut the other set just slightly below center then glue the larger half to the flap (ends will go over the Decorative Border a bit) then glue the bottom half to the pocket front. This will finish card base.

Stamp sentiment with Sky Blue, die cut with oval to fit then die cut a silver oval mat. Pop up on bottom portion of inside easel base (this will make the easel stand).

Stamp the Garden Lily Bouquet and 2 extra lily images using black for the front flap decoration, (these images will cover points where dies cross at the bottom corners).  Color images with Copic Markers (or chose coloring method). Die cut then pop up on card front flap.

Matthew 25:31-40

31 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 And he will place the sheep on his right, but the goats on the left. 34 Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, 36 I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ 37 Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? 38 And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? 39 And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ 40 And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers,[f] you did it to me.’

Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.
