Special Day! Easel Card

 Good morning crafty friends!

Material List

Card size:  6 X 6”

Cut a Simple Centerpiece card base using the largest die in the set on white cardstock. Score right side at 3” then fold down toward center fold, crease with bone folder then open flat. Cut another card front from white cardstock with the same die. Glue this piece to the bottom half only of the 3” scored side (all edges should match. This forms the easel base.

Cut green and lavender decorative paper for the front and inside of card using the same large Simple Centerpiece die.  Glue the inside piece onto card but wait on the front.  Use the lattice insert curvy Accent die to cut through front decorative paper piece at an angle.  Cut it again from silver then glue the silver under the decorative paper off set so that silver shows.  Trim any excess silver from edges of Centerpiece die cut.  Glue a piece of lavender decorative paper under lattice opening then glue the card front to the base front.

Make 2 silver Octagon frames using the largest Simple Centerpiece die along with the next die in size together.  Pop up the top/front silver frame and glue the inside silver frame to card.

Use a small oval die to cut a piece of silver and a piece of Fun Foam. Glue these together then glue to the inside of card to create a stop to keep easel card open (for best results this piece should be almost at the bottom of the inside).

Stamp Feathery Florals using black on white cardstock, die cut then color.  Shape on the back using the largest ball stylist in the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. (Use pop ups under flowers and some leaves).  Adhere larger floral to the front of card on the right side and glue/pop up smaller floral on top of the silver oval inside card.

Stamp Wild Rose using Deep Purple onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Cardstock. Sponge with Deep Purple, die cut then sponge edges again and use the shaping mold to form flowers.  Glue 2 of the same size blossoms together to make flowers and then fill with Prills.  Glue 3 on the front with Feathery Florals and 2 inside.

Cut one of the strip sentiments from decorative paper, line with silver, fish tail both ends then use a pen to make a wave.  Glue it to the front at an angle.

Glitter card randomly and glitter all the flowers.

Heartfelt Thanks Pocket Card

 Hello there!

I've done another pocket card today. This one is much simpler than the pocket easel card I made before but just as pretty.

Card size:  5 1/4" X 6 1/2"

Cut white cardstock 6 X 11 3/4" then score at 3 1/2 and 8 1/4", fold in. Cut 3 pieces of pink and green decorate paper to fit each panel then glue 1 on flap, 1 inside and 1 on pocket outside. Glue the pocket sides to inside to form pocket. On left end (flap), place the circle inset die and the curved plain edge die along the edge and cut to make a decorative edge for the flap.  Cut this same decorative edge on a piece of gold to fit under flap so that the gold shows slightly. Cut a piece of gold about 1/4" wide to cover any seam made on the inside of flap.  Wrap a gold ribbon around entire flap above the decorative edge.

Cut 2 tags from decorative paper using the Ticket and Tags die set., insert gold ribbon at the tops then place inside of pocket. Stamp sentiment using Magenta Hue onto white, die cut with oval then die cut another oval a little larger from gold. Glue together then glue to inside on top of pocket top edge.

Use black to stamp the Petite Feathery Florals and Butterfly.  Die cut then color.  Glue the butterfly to the pocket (make sure it shows when flap is closed). Glue the Petite Feathery floral to the top of flap over ribbon (leave room on the left side for Lilies).

Stamp Lilies using Sunflower and using Magenta Hue, sponge then die cut and form in the mold.  Insert stamen then glue to the card flap left side.

Glitter all the flowers and butterfly then make a gold bow and glue it under Lilies.

Thank you friends for visiting today!
