It's time for another Magnolia Down Under Challenge - this week we were to make an Easel Card. My very favourite style of card and I am sure you can see how addictive they are, not just by looking at my blog, but looking around blogland, they are hugely popular and come in all shapes and sizes. I hope you'll join us this week and if you've not made one before, they come with a warning "very addictive". I have included some directions below, hope they are not too confusing, please don't hesitate to contact me if you need further info. If you need some inspiration, stop by Magnolia Down Under Challenge Blog to see some amazing cards my fellow DT's came up with.
I used Jay Jay's Sketch from the Challenge this week at Just Magnolia, I rotated the sketch but otherwise stuck to it without braking the rules . Wonderful sketch Jay Jay, I can see I will use this sketch many times.
Other - Ribbon, Flowers, Stickles - Star Dust. Machine Stitching - straight & zig zag.
My finished card size is 15cm square (6")
Cardstock 30cm x 15cm (12"x6")
Cardstock -15cm x 15cm (6"x6")
score tool/scor pal
Scor Tape/Red Tape or strong adhesive
Easel Card 15cm square cut 30cm x15cm piece of cardstock - score at 15cm & 7.5cm (6" & 3") vertically - valley fold both score lines.
Embellish card front - attach to card base, I find it easier to close the card, sticking the front to the closed card, it's easier to line up. To hold the card in place you need to add a button, pop dot or some sort of dimension for the card to catch on to keep it from closing.
To resize all you need to remember is score your card in half and then in half again.
Example of sizes: 12.5cm (5") square
Cardstock 25cm (10") x 12.5cm (5") - score at 12.5 (5") & 6.25cm (2.5")
Have a wonderful week, thanks for stopping by & happy stamping.
