My Card Today

Today’s project is a Double Easel card – one of my favorites because it is so easy for a non-crafter to figure out how to display it. 😂 Plus, it’s such a great way to show off beautiful paper, providing at least three areas for your creative style. My card showcases the Pretty Birds bundle and the beautiful Fancy Flower designer paper – must-haves in your forever stash.

My Secrets!

  • Firstly, I created the A2 card base, which was super easy to do.
    • Card base #1 cardstock – cut at 11″ x 4-1/4″ and scored at 5-1/2.”
    • Card base #2 cardstock – cut at 4″ x 10-1/4″ and scored at 2-1/2″ and 5.”
    • Large DSP Panel: 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″
    • Small DSP Panel: 2-1/4″ x 3-7/8.”

Now, the FUN Part!

  • Once that was done, I began the main focal point by first cutting the birdcage in Daffodil Delight.
  • Then, I stamped the foliage from the Plentiful Plants stamp set to fill it with because I don’t believe in birds being in cages. They were all sponged with Soft Succulent ink.
  • After that, I dry embossed white cardstock with the Timeworn Type embossing folder, then cut it out with the Deckled Rectangle die and sponged the edges well with Soft Succulent ink.
  • Then, I popped up the top and the bottom of the cage on top of the panel with dimensionals onto the card base. After that, I decided the top of the cage needed a bit of something so I cut out the bow and colored it with Soft Succulent and Smoky Slate, blending them together with the Color Lifter for a sponged look.
  • Firstly, I stamped the Cheerful Basket sentiment in Soft Succulent. After that, the small panel was completed with another small deckled rectangle (sponged). Then, I stamped the bird with Soft Succulent and colored his belly with Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. Finally, I added a couple of sponged leaves to the sentiment panel.

Then, on the inside…

  • Finally, the inside was quickly done with a large panel of white cardstock cut with the deckled rectangle die and edges sponged.
  • Then, I stamped the pot and the plant with Soft Succulent ink and added a very subtle sponging of ink on the background panel before layering them onto the card base.
