It’s time for September Blog Hop with the Stamping Around the World Tutorial Group. You might have come from Sue’s Blog or starting here.
For our Blog Hop we use the stamp set/bundle that we used in this month’s Tutorial Bundle that are sent out. Of course I used the Playful Penguins set from the new 2019 Holiday Catalogue. They are just too cute.
For this Blog Hop I have made probably the easiest Easel card you could create. The idea came from Lou’s blog -> HERE.
Let me show you the card and I will tell you how I have made it.
To create the Super Simple Easel Card
See the ‘Side View’ photo above to get an idea of the fold.
Cut card to the standard size base card whether you are using Metric or the Imperial US card size.
Score 2.5 cm (1″) on the front of the card base. Fold on the score line. This is for the fold of the Easel.
Cut a strip of card 2.5cm wide (1″) and the length being the width of the card.
I added a strip of the Christmas Gleaming stripe pattern on this piece of card. This strip is then adhered to the bottom edge of the inside of the card with dimensionals. This strip creates the anchor point to hold the Easel up.
Decorate the Easel card as you like.
I cut a curved strip of Sparkle Glimmer Paper and adhered it on the folded tab. 3 Penguins were stamped with their scarves and then hand-cut and raised up off the Glimmer Paper. A piece of the Christmas Gleaming Designer Series Paper was adhered to the front of the card which you can see as the star pattern on the top panel.
The sentiment was stamped on a strip of white card but check out the flourish banner Gold Foil. That was cut using the Ornate Frames Dies from the Holiday Catalogue.
Such an easy card to create but so fun with these penguins.
