Central Panel Easel Card

August 8, 2019

Today I am sharing a Central Panel Easel Card which has a card base cut from Thick Whisper White card.  To create this card, you need to cut and score your card base as usual.  Line up the edge of the card with the 1-1/4″ mark on our paper trimmer and cut from the score line to the edge.  Line up the opposite edge of the card with the 1-1/4″ mark and cut from the score line to the edge.  You need to make sure that both cuts are on the same side of the fold.  The 1-1/4″ panels are glued to the back of the card and decorated with Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper.  The central flap is scored roughly in half. I stamped the sea image from the High Tide stamp set across the bottom of the central panel using Balmy Blue ink.  I stamped the long skinny image from the Waterfront stamp set across the top of the water using Soft Suede ink.  I made sure to line up the edge of the stamp the the left hand edge of the central panel.  I sponged the rest of the central panel with Pool Party ink and stamped the bird image from the High Tide stamp set over the sponged area using Night of Navy ink.  I stamped the lighthouse from the Sailing Home stamp set onto scrap Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I added some colour using the Soft Suede and Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write Markers.  I cut out the image using the co-ordinating Smooth Sailing Die and attached the lighthouse over the stamped Soft Suede image, making sure that the glue did not extend above the score line. I stamped the small sailing boat image from the Sailing Home stamp set onto scrap Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and added some colour using the Balmy Blue, Daffodil Delight and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Write Markers.  The boats were cut out using the co-ordinating Smooth Sailing Die.  One boat is attached to the right hand side of the stamped sea image, making sure that the glue does not go above the score line.  The second boat is attached to the card using dimensionals.

I stamped “happy birthday” from the Magnolia Blooms stamp set onto scrap Whisper White card using Night of Navy ink and cut it out using one of the Layering Circles Dies.  I attached the greeting to Night of Navy card punched using the Pretty Label Punch.  The greeting is attached to the inside of the card using dimensionals.

I am very happy with the way this card turned out.  Have you tried to make one of these, they are really quite simple once you know how but oh so gorgeous AND they fold flat to go in a standard envelope!

Bye for now,

Kris
