Project 3 Easy Easter Easel Card.
My upline, Tami, showed me how to make this simple easel card. You simply score a line in the middle of the card, fold it and place some sort of item with dimension on the inside about a third of the way up that will help it prop open. The focal image (in this case the bunny) is only attached on the lower half, so when the card is folded it stands up.
sets- chocolate bunny, fundamental phrases, well scripted
cs- so saffron, close to cocoa, pretty in pink, whisper white, certainly celery, sweet pea designer paper
ink- basic brown pad, chocolate chip craft pad
access- celery, & white narrow grosgrain ribbon, wide saffron grosgrain ribbon, heat tool & clear ep, paper snips, dimensionals, scallop edge, scallop oval, & wide oval punches, 1/16" handheld punch, 1/4" chocolate chip epoxy brads
Project 4 XL 2-Step Bird Punch Card
We cut off a portion of the chocolate chip base card, turned it 90 degrees and attached it to the card front. Before attaching it, we scallop trim punched one edge, ran it through the Big Shot with one of SU's exclusive texture plates, and added some ribbon and hemp twine. We also added the fun bird punch with two wings cut from the Sweet Pea dp and a branch punched from old olive. I'm amazed how many branches can be punched out of a little scrap!
sets- of the earth
cs- chocolate chip, whisper white, sweet pea dp, old olive
ink- old olive pad, taken with teal pad
access- wide old olive grosgrain ribbon, natural hemp twine, xl 2 step bird punch, scallop trim border punch, tombo multipurpose glue, big shot, SU backgrounds #1 texture plates, dimensionals
