Sweet Citrus Card by Secrets to Stamping

Hi, Stampers!

A new Alphabet Challenge is starting today – “Y is for Yummy.” Since I don’t have much in the way of food in my stash (and most of my stash is packed away at the moment), Sweet Citrus came to my rescue with this easel card. Then, I paired it with the lovely Tea Boutique designer paper, which I consider “yummy” – do you?

Once you finish here, I hope you visit our Alphabet Design Team gallery for some great inspiration and play along!

My secrets!

  • Firstly, I created the card base as follows:
    • Card base: 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ and scored at 2-1/8″ and 4-1/4″ to make an A2 card.
    • Easel Panel: 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ cardstock, then it’s glued to the lower half of the card base.
    • Front Panel: DSP cut to 5″ x 3-3/4″ then layered onto cardstock/DSP at 5-1/8″ x 3-7/8″
    • Inside Panel: Cardstock cut to 5″ x 3-3/4″ then layered onto white cardstock/DSP at 5-1/8″ x 3-7/8″

And now, the fun part!

  • After that, I had so much fun making my limes. Firstly, I embossed and cut them out all in one pass through my cutting machine – easy! Then, I sponged them so that the texture came out.
  • Once that was done, I stamped the front panel sentiment and cut it out with the Deckled Rectangle die and layered it onto Parakeet Party cardstock.
  • I arranged the limes and glued/popped them onto the panel, then I popped the entire panel onto the card front with dimensionals.

Then, on the inside…

  • Firstly, I cut papers for the panel, which was then glued to the card base.
  • After that, I stamped the sentiment onto a 1/2″ strip of white cardstock (scraps make it easy). Then, I punched the ends with the new Happy Labels Punch. Once that was done, I layered it onto Parakeet Party cardstock, cut at 5/8″ and cropped the ends with the punch, as well.
  • Finally, I added the lime and leaves, then popped the sentiment up with dimensionals, which will hold the easel into place.

I’m sharing my card with these challenges:
