Merriest Moments Easel Card

I had fun making this easel card using the Merriest Moments Bundle.  I love easel cards and I love the Hybrid Embossing Folder in this bundle that embosses and cuts!  What could be better.  What do you think?


Instructions

  1. Cut Evening Evergreen card stock 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" for card base
  2. Cut Evening Evergreen card stock 4" x 10 1/2" and score at 2 1/8" and 5 1/4".
  3. Fold on score lines and adhere to the card base.
  4. Emboss and cut Gold Shimmer Vellum card stock using the Embossing Folder and Die.
  5. Adhere to the bottom of the card along the 2 1/8" x 4" flap.
  6. Stamp sentiment on Basic White card stock using Cherry Cobbler ink and cut out using Die
  7. Adhere to the centre of the embossed piece using Dimensionals.
  8. Stamp 2 sizes of petals using Cherry Cobbler ink on Basic White card stock.  Cut out using Dies
  9. Stamp 2 leaves using Evening Evergreen ink on Basic White card stock and cut out using Dies.
  10. Stamp sprig using Evening Evergreen ink on Basic White card stock and cut out using Dies.
  11. Adhere Petals together using a Dimensional
  12. Adhere leaves and sprig to the back using Glue Dots
  13. Adhere to the bottom right corner of card base using a Dimensional
  14. Add Gilded Gem to the centre of the flower
  15. Cut 3" of ribbon and fold in half.  Trim ends on diagonal.
  16. Adhere underneath flower using a Glue Dot.
  17. Cut Basic White card stock 3 3/4" x 5"
  18. Stamp flower using Cherry Cobbler ink about 2" up from bottom on right hand side.
