I’m incredibly excited to have this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO228) based on one of my very own cards (originally here).
Here’s what my easel card looks like closed (4 1/2″ x 4 1/4″).
I relied on this Stampin’ Up! video tutorial by Brian Pilling to create the easel. You GO, Brian! I changed mine to a different size (4 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ closed) but the concept is the same. My card stock was cut to 4 1/4″ x 9″ and scored at 4 1/2″ and 2 1/4″.
STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:
- VersaMark Ink and a Stampin’ Sponge add luscious depth to the flower petals.
- Squaring up that pretty piece of Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper (Sale-A-Bration) is seriously easy with the Stampin’ Up! Top Note Die. Check out my Top Note Squared Video Tutorial.
- I adhered my Blossom Petals Builder Punch petals to a 1 1/4″ circle. Makes life much easier!
- Those cutie patootie brads are FREE during Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration with a qualifying order.
- To provide a trustworthy edge for keeping the card propped up as an easel, I adhered a piece of River Rock card stock on Stampin’ Dimensionals. Kickstand, baby!
