Fancy Flowers Easel Card

Here’s a lovely version of an easel card made at our workshops.

This card uses the gorgeous Stamps designed by Trudie Howard (Flowers and backgrounds), Phill’s Octagon dies and Stately petite Sentiments.  We have coloured in the flowers using the new Watercolour  Blending Brush Pens!

Stage 1 – cut out all the layers and die cuts needed as below:

  • 20cm x 20cm – Card Blank
  • 9.5cm x 9.5cm (x3 pieces) – Inked layers
  • 9cm x 9cm – Backrgound Layers
  • 1 x larger octagon (flowers)
  • 2 x medium octagons (creates the easel)
  • 1 x small octagon (stopper)
  • Scrap white card to stamp extra flowers etc

Stage 2 – start by creating your base card using the 20cm x 20cm piece of square card.  Firstly score at 10cm across and up/down to create 4 quarters.  Then score from the top middle score line diagonally down/out towards the two middle score lines.   Cut up the  score line from the bottom middle score line to the centre of the card.  Fold the middle scored lines inwards and use a bone folder to create a crisp crease.  Fold the top two diagonal score lines back and out on themselves. Crease well. (see image)

Stage 3 – cut two of the 9.5cm x 9.5cm pieces diagonally in half to create triangles.  Ink the edges of all these 5 pieces. (4 triangles , 1 square)

Stage 4 – stamp the background onto the x3 9cm x 9cm pieces.  THEN cut two in half diagonally.  Stick these layers to the inked layers.

Stage 5 – stamp your chosen flower onto the largest octagon so that some of the flower is off the edges of the card.   Stamp the flower again onto the scrap card for decoupaging later.

TIP – If you don’t want to decoupage your flower, just stamp if fully onto this piece.

Stage 6 – stamp your chosen sentiment/image onto the stopper octagon and also a verse on the bottom left hand side of the card blank.

Stage 7 – colour in your flowers and cut out the piece you want to decoupage. and stick to the main flower.

TIP – if you are decoupaging all your flowers you don’t actually need to colour these in on the large octagon as you will not see it! But you do need to colour the stems.

Stage 8 – to create the easel, use the x2 medium size octagons.  Firstly, fold one in half and score well.  Create a small tab on side and score.  Glue this to one side of the unfolded octagon. (see image)

Stage 9 – assemble all the layers onto the card blank and add glitter if you wish!

Stage 1 – Cut out all the layers and die cuts needed as shown in the photo.

TIP – if you place the rectangle dies carefully, you get all 3 paper layers from 1 sheet of card!

Stage 2 – choose one of the gorgeous Stately Corner Stamps to use on the plain layer.  You can use Ink or Embossing Powder – we have used Gathered Twigs on this card.  You could also add Clear Embossing Powder over the Distress Oxide to make it glossy.

Stage 3 – choose one of the Stately Sentiments to use on your topper. Fill in any spaces with the Corner Stamps.

Stage 4 – colour your flowers, shape and assemble

Stage 5 – decorate your envelope if you want a fully coordinated look!

Stage 6 – assemble the card, using foam tape where you wish. Add ribbon, glitters or pearls.
