Mojo Monday127: Easel

Stampin up mojo monday easel card

Isn't this easel fun?  For this week's Mojo Monday sketch challenge  (MOJO127), I created an easel card that will help celebrate my teenage nephew's 14th birthday.  I think it has enough birthday whimsy without being too young for him.  The bold colors bring out the Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper (Occasions Mini Catalog) and masculine, geometric shapes.  Click and scroll for more of my masculine card ideas.

  • Stampin up mojo monday interior The easel portion of this 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" card (closed) is whipped up in minutes.  Click here for the Splitcoaststampers Easel Card Tutorial and video I relied on.
  • A punched star, brad and Pumpkin Pie strip are the "kickstand" when the card is set up.
  • Line up your brads with precision.  I used Stampin' Up!'s Paper-Piercing Tool and Piercing Mat (included in the Mat Pack) to help these Vintage Brads become a happy "chorus line."
  • Mini Glue Dots adhere the large button with superhero strength.  For a polished touch, I "threaded" a skinny piece of Chocolate Chip card stock through the button holes.
  • Stampin up mojo monday whimsical words Stampin' Up!'s Stampin' Write Markers were used to color the sentiment
    with three different colors.  I love the results.
