Welcome to my Saturday blog post for Great Impressions Stamps.
This week, the GI Design Team has been showcasing fun card folds. If you've
not peeked in at the GI blog this week, go back to Monday, and check out
everyone's great cards!
My choice was an easel card. If you have never created an easel card,
let me show you how easy it is! The stamps that I used are: Great Impressions E684 The Path to a Friend's House, and Great Impressions H243 Garden House.
Come on, let's make one!
First, decide what size card you are going to make, and in what orientation your
card will be. I made an A2 sized card, in portrait orientation. Cut your main
card base to 4.25" x 11". Score at 2.75" and at 5.5". Your card will look like this:
Now, cut a piece of cardstock measuring A2 size (5.5" x 4.25").
Add adhesive of choice to the folded section of your card base, as shown.
I used a two sided tape, as it was more visual than a clear tape runner.
Remove the strips, and adhere your 5.5" x 4.25" cardstock, matching up all lines.
When finished, your card will look like this.
Next, cut another panel a bit smaller, and begin decorating, coloring, etc.
I have a friend with a new potting shed. It's totally adorable, and this card will be in the
mail to her tomorrow!
Here is what the front looks like.
Here is a view with the easel front in place. I carried the clear glass 1/2 beads over from
the front, into the inside of the card, to hold the easel up. Our verbage is written
in the small section above the 5 beads.
Here's a view looking down, at the darling GI sentiment!
See how easy it is? Give it a shot!
What a fun way to send a greeting to that someone special!
