I held a Birthday Cheer class on the weekend. It was showcasing the great Birthday Cheer Bundle from the Occasions Catalogue and making some fun cards with it. I don’t often share my class cards with you but I thought I would share with you about this.
One of the cards I made was an Easel card. This card was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest.
This first card was the card I made to share at the class. Everyone thought it was nice. It was using the gorgeous Grapefruit Grove Foil Sheets from Sale-A-Bration. (On a side note did you know that this foil is nearly sold out?? You might want to grab this as your next free choice for Sale-A-Bration). It is so shiny.
The single cupcake is stamped in Stazon and watercoloured with the inkpads. There is a die to cut it too.
The Easel card is very easy to make.
To make one: Take a standard sheet of card. Cut it in half vertically. Take one of those halves and score it in half and then score one of those sections in half again. Then fold up to create an easel.
With any type of Easel card you need something on the base as a stopper to hold up the Easel. For this one I used the Oval sentiment piece.
While I made this card and used this for the class I had a different idea in my head but it wasn’t working before the class.
During the class when I was demonstrating this I played around with it and created this version below. Everyone loved this idea even more and made this one instead for their card. So I thought you might like to see it then.
I created the Easel card the same with the cutting and scoring. This time though I rearranged the pieces. So simple really but so much more effective. Adhere your diecut cupcake border behind the Mint Marcaron card piece. For the stopper on this I used the cupcake.
Doesn’t that create a bit more of a WOW??
Why not create your own.
