An Alternative Parisian Beauty Double Easel Card for Fun Fold Friday

Double Easel Card Featuring Parisian Beauty Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!

 

Hello! I hope you all are having some fun in your craft rooms when you can carve out the time. There’s nothing like playing with paper to forget our troubles for a while. Because I am at high risk due to my medical problems, staying at home is a must. Therefore, my craft room is giving me much comfort and easing my anxiety. I have seen some cute double easel cards around the web and thought I would attempt one of them. The Parisian Beauty bundle was one of those bundles I hadn’t used yet. This double easel style is just perfect for it, don’t you think? When  choosing which paper to use, the Perennial Essence DSP was already out of its spot and just begged to be used again.

My Secrets to Making This Parisian Beauty Project

Large Easel Dimensions
  • This A6 easel card started with Night of Navy 12×12 cardstock, cut at 4 1/2″ x 12″ and scored at 3″ and 6″
  • 1 piece of Night of Navy, cut at 4 1/2″ x 6″
  • 2 pieces of Petal Pink Vellum paper cut at 4 1/4″ x 5 3/4″
  • 2 pieces of Perennial Essence DSP cut at 4 1/8″ x 5 5/8″
Small Easel Dimensions
  • Night of Navy cardstock: 4 1/2″ x 2 1/4″ and scored at 2 1/4″ and 1 1/8″
  • 1 piece of Night of Navy, cut at 2 1/4″ square
  • 2 pieces of Petal Pink Vellum paper, cut at 2 1/8″ square
  • 2 pieces of Perennial Essence DSP, cut at 2″ square
Card Details
  • Now, the fun part! I found the Petal Pink oval in my stash so all I had to do was dry emboss it in the Scripty embossing folder.
  • The Eiffel Tower was cut out twice – once with Night of Navy cardstock and the other in the Brushed Silver cardstock that I found going through my Neutral paper scraps. (It’s retired so you can use any neutral you have.) The double layer gives it more dimension.
  • The sentiments (Sending Hugs is from the new Tags in Bloom) were stamped and cut out.
  • The flower (from Pocketful of Happiness) and fleur-de-lis were stamped onto the Petal Pink vellum paper and allowed to dry. The flower was colored on the back with Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blend brush, then fussy cut. The fleur-de-lis was cut with its coordinating die.
  • Once everything was adhered to the card base, I was playing with the position of the smaller one. Ultimately, it just seemed better at an angle, so I went with it.
  • I decided that the inside flap needed a little “sumthin’ sumthin'” so I cut out the flourish with Petal Pink cardstock.
  • The finishing touch was adding rhinestones (regular and champagne) to the large easel and the flowers to the smaller one as the prop to keep it standing up.
