Welcome to fancy fold friday!
Once again, trying something new here! I have a few of these posts lined up over the next few weeks, looking at card folds that make your cards stand out from the other cards on the mantel piece. I thought we’d start simple – a easel card
Easel cards are super simple to create. This card base (in Wisteria Wonder) is cut to 8 1/4 by 5 1/2 (about half an A4). The card is scored at 2 1/4 and 4 1/8th, creating a triangle of cardstock. Another piece of cardstock (this time in Very Vanilla) is attached to one of the short sides of the triangle to create a taller card. The stamp set used here is Bouquet Toss – a set that, although designed for weddings (and that ties into the Always and Forever wedding stationary templates in MDS), is a lovely feminine stamp set for Thank You cards, Birthdays, and Congratulations cards. The small flowers (although fussy cut here) work wonderfully with the 1/2″ circle punch, to create ‘pegs’ to hold the card up when displayed.
I’m really loving simple colour combinations at the moment, and have found myself making a lot of cards with only two or maybe three colours!
Can’t wait to see you again next week!
