Tutorial Thursday - Open Card


Hey everyone! Guest designer Stephanie here with you today to show you a very quick and simple shape of card, opening by the middle. I don't know if you're like me, but I always end up doing the same shape of cards, same sketch, etc., so I decided to jazz things a little bit on a video (!!) with a funny creation opening from the middle. 

You can't really see it on this picture, but when you untie the grey silky ribbon, our World Traveler Luka gets to reveal something!


Hi, Luka!

The inside of the card...


Ok, now the fun part! Click on the arrow to start the video! Oh and I apologize in advance, in order to have it running below 10 minutes, I had to go...like.....really really fast, eheh!

Tutorial Thursday - Mini Double Easel Card


Hi All,
Debbie here today with a fun little card that I call a Mini Double Easel Card. I am going to give you the steps for the one you see here but I would love to see some other versions of this too....


For the Base Card you will need.....
Cardstock
Designer Paper
Stitched Nested Circle Dies (the second and third largest ones)

For My Version you will also need.....


Flamenco Marci (coloured and cut out)
Lace
Pearls
Flowers 
Using the template above cut out your card base. Also cut out a 3 x 4 inch rectangular piece. 



Fold on the score lines so your card base looks like the one above.


Attach the rectangular piece to the front of the left had side to create the larger easel.


Cut patterned paper to fit the 3 card faces and mat with a complementary coloured cardstock.
 Now comes the fun part - DECORATING......


Before attaching the panels to the easels I die cut, trimmed and attached teal pieces of the small lacy border to the outer edges. I trimmed off the bottom edge so the cut is not as noticeable. Add pearls to the base of each scallop.

Cut one teal stitched circle (second largest die) and one white stitched circle (third largest die) and glue together. Die cut one teal heart fan and attach to the circles. Die cut one white heart fan and gently mountain fold to give it some more texture. Attach to the top of the teal fan. Glue some flowers to the base. Attach this to the triangular section of your easel.

Using 3D foam pads attach Marci to the rectangular easel. Use extra pearls on the card base to hold your easels in place.

Attach a strip of lace and a large flower to the card base.

Die cut 3 teal "Love" words and layer together. Top with a white die cut "Love" and attach to card base. Cut the heart out in red and glue it in place.

I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial and we would love to see your creations using this tutorial if you make any!
