My share for today is an Easel Card that I designed using Stampin' Up's December 2016 Paper Pumpkin Kit called Wonderful Winterland. If you know me or follow my blog, you know that I work with my Paper Pumpkin Kits in reverse. As soon as I see the kit, I get these idea's for alternate cards and projects and have to work with them before I put the kit together per the instructions.
Let's take a look at the Tea Light Easel Card that I designed:
There's a lot of video's out there on how to make Easel Cards.
For my Easel Base Card, I trimmed out a piece of Whisper White Cardstock at 4-1/4" x 6" and scored and folded it at 1-1/2" and 3".
I trimmed out another piece of Whisper White Cardstock at 3" x 4-1/4" and adhered it to my Easel Card Base only up to the 1-1/2" score line using Mono Multi Purpose Glue.
Using SU's Layered Square Framelits or SU's new Stitched Framelits Dies, I partial die cut the rectangle window out twice. So, you lay your die over the center of the 1-1/2" score line to the left edge leaving enough room for your frame and run it thru the BIG Shot until the last edge of your die is under the BIG Shot's roller. (You will be cutting through both pieces of the cardstock). Do the same on the right side. I used the new Stitched Framelits Dies and I can use this die cut piece on another project. It makes for a nice Stitched Edge Rectangle. (This is kind of hard to explain in writing so I would recommend that you check out some Easel Card Video's on the internet.)
I trimmed out a piece of SU's Vellum Cardstock at 3" x 4-1/4". Using the Wonderful Winterland Stamp Set that comes with the Paper Pumpkin Kit, I stamped the Snowflakes on the Vellum 3 times in Dapper Denim Ink. I then adhered the edges of the Vellum to the Frame of the Easel Card Base using Mono Multi Purpose Glue.
The picture above was taken with the Tea Light On in half light.
I stamped the Trees on the first laser cut die cut in Pear Pizzazz Ink and the Sentiment in Dapper Denim Ink. I also stamped the rest of the Sentiment, Snowflakes and two Trees on the Easel Card Base.
I adhered the first two layers of laser cut die cuts with Stampin' Dimensionals and adhered the third laser cut die cut to the Vellum with SU Glue Dots.
Using the Baker's Twine that comes in the kit, I wrapped it around the top of the Vellum and Easel and tied it into a Bow.
I adhered 3 Sequins that come in the kit randomly onto the Vellum.
The picture above was taken with the Tea Light On and in no light. So pretty!
I adhered one of SU's Metal Rimmed Pearls (retiring soon and in the Online Extravaganza Sale) to the center of the Easel Card Base to create an anchor for the Easel to sit behind.
The picture above is a close up of the layering of the laser die cuts. They look so cool and I love the dimension.
Here's another close up!
And, a picture of the back of my Easel Card. I trimmed out a 1-5/8" notch in the bottom of the frame for the Tea Light to sit flat.
So pretty with the Tea Light On or Off!!! I'm LOVIN' this Paper Pumpkin Kit!!!
Please come back tomorrow when I'll share another project from the Wonderful Winterland Paper Pumpkin Kit.
