I’ve had fun making Double Easel Fold cards of late – a great way to show our beautiful Designer Series Paper (DSP). For these cards I’ve used the Paper Blooms DSP which is available for you to select as your FREE purchase with every NZD$110 order placed between now and 28 February. The Paper Blooms pack is a 12×12 pack of paper and you get 2 sheets of each design – there are 6 double sided designs. Check out my Catalogues page to view the Sale-A-Bration brochure.
The Pretty Perennials Bundle from page 31 of the Jan-June Mini coordinates beautifully with this DSP. The card base is Thick Whisper White and the mat is Night of Navy. The flower has been stamped with Seaside Spray then die cut from the Perennial Petals dies.
The overlay on the flower has been die cut from Vellum Cardstock (page 153 AC). It’s been ages since I used Vellum on my projects and it really goes well with this set. Do you have products you’ve purchased then forget to use?
To make this card you need one piece of cardstock (Thick Whisper White) measuring 10.5cm x 29.7cm and scored at 14.8cm, a second piece of cardstock (Night of Navy) measuring 10cm x 28.8cm and scored at 7.2cm and 14.4cm and then folded in a ‘mountain’, ‘valley’ formation and two pieces of DSP measuring 9.5cm x 13.8cm and 9.5cm x 6.7cm. Adhere the larger section of the Night of Navy to the Thick Whisper White then adhere you pieces of DSP. The final step is to decorate the front – I used the Layering Ovals and Pretty Perennials Bundle.
My cousins daughter turns 21 shortly and as I was on a roll with the Double Easel card I made one for her and a Milk Carton filled with chocolates to match the card (she also got another gift from us but you always have to have a chocolate gift)
For the inside I’ve added a mat of Seaside Spray and a stamped insert of Whisper White. The sentiment is from one of my ‘go to’ sentiment sets – Peaceful Moments (Page 19 AC). Every stamper should have this set in their stash.
I hope you give this card style a go – fun fold cards are always well received.
Until next time …
