Well, I need to start by saying a huge Thank You to you all for all your support (and purchases!) from my first ever shows on Create & Craft yesterday with Creative Expressions and my Sentimentally Yours Stamps..
I was so relieved that you all loved the shows and my stamps!
Now, I've had sooooo many of you ask me for the dimensions for the tall Easel Card I did as my first demo, so the easiest way to tell you all is on here :-)
It's really simple, but looks quite amazing once it's all assembled :-)
Here's the photo of the card....
This is what I used..
2 A4 Sheets of Purple Card
3 A4 Sheets of Cream Card
Spellbinders Grand Decorative Ovals
Spellbinders Gold Labels 4
Seedless Preserves Distress Ink
Spellbinders Blooms 4
Spellbinders Scalloped Borders 2
Spellbinders Butterfly Corner
I won't rattle on about how I've used everything as you can see how I put the card together from the photo, but the size of the card is what you need, so..
Trim 2 pieces of cream A4 card to 14.5cm along the long side, so you end up with two long 14.5cm strips.
Score both pieces at 21cm, then crease.
Glue one of the flaps to the inside of the second piece of card, making sure that the flap on the second piece of card is at the bottom (so it's not stuck!)
Then, decorate as you wish.
To give the card some rigidity on the inside, I used a piece of purple card, then a piece of cream card with a scalloped edge on both sides, then stamped one of my Birthday verses onto it and stuck in all in.
TOP TIP - If you use Cosmic Shimmer acrylic glue, it makes the card a little stiffer, which is what you need for the inside of this card.
PS - This card folds and fits into a standard C5 envelope :-)
Glad You like it!
