Double Easel Easter Card

Welcome back.

Today I am featuring a double easel card using the Flowering Dogwood collection.  I think the white embossing makes it look like there is snow on the flowers and branches.

Materials Used:

Cardstock – Bazzill White Smooth, Heartfelt Creations Vellum

Paper – Heartfelt Creations Flowering Dogwood

Stamps – Heartfelt Creations Flowering Dogwood, Flowering Dogwood Branches

Dies – Heartfelt Creations Flowering Dogwood, Flowering Dogwood Branches, Luggage and Tags, Spellbinders Decorative Label Eight, Labels Eight

Inks – Memento Lilac Posies, Bamboo Leaves, New Sprout, Colorbox Dark Brown, Frost White

Ranger White Embossing Powder

Prills – Lettuce Entertain You

Art Glitter Ultrafine Glitter – Crystal

Art Glitter dries Clear Glue

Dove Blender pen

Heartfelt Creations Deluxe Shaping Kit

Instructions:

To make the easel fold a piece of white cardstock in half and use the largest die from the Decorative Labels Eight set place over the folded card with the long edge just over the fold.  Do the same with the smallest die.  This creates the hinge.  Score along the center of one side of the hinged card and fold it toward the centre to create the easel. Die cut a single decorative label eight die of both sizes. Add to the front of the easels.  Die cut the coordinating size die from the Labels Eight set using the grey paper from the Flowering Dogwood papers and adhere to the front of the hinged die cuts.  Adhere the smaller hinged card to the front of the larger hinged card to create the double easel.

To make the flowers stamp the images from the Flowering Dogwood and Flowering Dogwood & Doves sets with Colorbox Frost White ink and emboss with Ranger White embossing powder on vellum.  Heat set and then colour the back of the images with New Sprout and Lilac Posies.   Die cut the flowers and touch the edges with the Lilac Posies.  Follow the same procedure with the leaves but colour the back with Bamboo Leaves before die cutting.  Use the Deluxe Shaping Kit shape the flowers and leaves.

Stamp the Flowering Dogwood branches from the Flowering Dogwood & Doves stamp using Colorbox Frost White ink and emboss with Ranger white embossing powder on vellum twice.  After heat setting colour the back of the image.  I have used a Dove blender pen to colour the branches with the dark brown ink and to put a touch of Lilac Posies on the flowers and Bamboo Leaves on the leaves.  Due cut and use the Deluxe Shaping kit to shape the leaves and flowers.

Adhere the branches to the front of the back hinged card and add the extra flowers and leaves.

Die cut the Easter Greeting tag and adhere to the front hinged card.  Add flowers on the left side as shown.  Cut a small piece of white card ½” x 1” and adhere to the base of the front to hold the easel in place.  Add the flowers and leaves as shown.  Finish off with adding crystal glitter to the flowers and leaves for some sparkle.

Happy Crafting
