Centre Easel Card

Hi, everyone 🙂

Sorry I’m late with my blog, but I have been very busy the last few days, and haven’t had a chance to catch up yet.

So today I thought I would share the card that we made in my advanced class last fortnight.

It’s called a centre easel card and it’s very easy to make.

I found the original on Pinterest and it had pumpkins and a wreath on it, and I thought that the Wavy Blooms D1651 would look good too.

I always seem to reach for this stamp set lately, as I just love the flowers in it.

I love this sponging technique as there is no wrong way to do it. Every time I do, it produce a different combination with the three colours that I have chosen.

Here are the instructions and how to video:

Instructions for the 5-1/2 x 4-1/4′ card

Card stock: 5-1/4’ x 8-1/2’’ score on long side @4-1/4’

Centre panel:3-1/4′ x 4-1/4′

White Daisy front panel: 3′ x 4′

Side panels: 4-1/4′ x 1-1/2’ cut 2

Banner: 1’ x 3-1/2’

the extra piece of card stock is 4′ x 8′

  1. Place the 5-1/2′ side of the card in the trimmer @ 1-1/2’ and cut down to the fold line. Move across to the 4′ mark and cut down to the fold line. This should give you two flaps on either end of the card.
  2. Glue these two, 1-1/2’ side flaps to the card , and attach the two side panels.
  3. Lay the card on the score board, so that the centre panel is on the left hand side, and score @ 2-1/8’ .
  4. Stamp a greeting on the White Daisy front panel. Just up from the middle.
  5. Attach the White Daisy front panel to the centre panel.
  6. Sponge three different coloured inks onto an extra piece of White Daisy card stock. Then stamp out some flowers of different sizes (I used ‘Wavy Blooms’ D1651 and the inks were:
  7. Hollyhock, Honey and Fern)
  8. Add glue to the 2-1/8’ bottom section of the card and attach the centre panel, so that it can swing up and down.
  9. Attach the flowers using glue on some, and 3D foam on others and attach to the centre panel so that they over hang the edges and spread out across the bottom of the card as shown (make sure that the adhesive is only on the area that is to be stuck to the card)
  10. Stamp onto the banner then dove tail. Add 3D foam tape to the back. Place this 1/2’ in on the bottom edge of card so that the easel can but up against it.

  7. Add glue to the 2’ bottom section of the card and attach the centre panel, so that it can swing up and down.
  8. Attach the flowers using glue on some, and 3D foam on others and attach to the centre panel so that they over hang the edges and spread out across the bottom of the card as shown (make sure that the adhesive is only on the area that is to be stuck to the card)
  9. Stamp onto the banner then dove tail. Add 3D foam tape to the back. Place this 1/2’ in on the bottom edge of card so that the easel can butt up against it.

I hope that you give this cute little card a go.
