Elemental Easel Card

February 20, 2020

Well I am on a roll using the beautiful Peaceful Poppy Elements, so today’s easel card is created using more of these gorgeous die cuts.  For this card, I used two of the flowers which are already embossed onto Watercolour paper and coloured them using an Aqua Painter and Poppy Parade re-inker.  I also coloured two of the leaves which again are already embossed onto Watercolour paper using an Aqua Painter and Mossy Meadow re-inker.  To do this I placed a drop of the re-inker in each colour onto a clear block, so that I could use my Aqua Painter to mix the re-inker with water and add to the flowers and leaves.  Anyway, I set the flowers and leaves aside to dry while I created the rest of the card.  I embossed a piece of Whisper White card using the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder and attached it to a piece of Mossy Meadow card.  I cut Poppy Parade card using on the dies from the Painted Labels Dies and attached it to the card front.  I cut Basic Black card using another of the Painted Labels Dies and attached it over the Poppy Parade die cut. I stamped “Happy Birthday” from the Peaceful Moments stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and cut it out using one of the circles from the Layering Circles Dies.  The greeting is attached to the centre of the Basic Black die cut.  I attached the flowers and leaves to the card front using dimensionals under the smallest flower.  I cut Poppy Parade card (10.5cm x length of the A4 sheet, scored along the longest side at 7.4 and 14.8cm). I used my bone folder on the score lines to give nice folds and attached the image panel to the centre of the section below the 7.4cm score line.  (Gosh I hope that makes sense.)

To decorate the inside of the card, I attached a piece of Whisper White card which gives me somewhere to write a message.  I stamped the greeting from the Peaceful Moments stamp set onto Whisper White card and cut it out using the label die from the Painted Labels Dies.  There is a score line on this die and I cut along the score line to reduce the size of the label.  I cut Poppy Parade using the same die and attached the greeting.  As you can see by trimming the Whisper White label, the greeting now has a Poppy Parade border.  The greeting is attached to the Whisper White card using dimensionals so that my easel will sit up nicely.  However, if folds flat to go into a standard sized envelope.  Yay!

I really am loving using these dies and I hope that you are enjoying my creations using them.

Bye for now,

Kris
