Diamond Fold Easel Card

April 8, 2021

Yesterday on my Facebook Live I demonstrated how to create this kind of card. I watched a video by Teri Pocock which I found on Pinterest which showed how to create this style of card. Teri created a box for her card but not a pizza style box. Since the card in 6″ square, I also shared how to create a pizza box to gift the card. I created the card base from Basic White card. I attached pieces of the Floral Gallery Designer Series Paper to Night of Navy card and then the card base.

For the front panel of the card, I embossed a piece of Basic White card using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. I stamped the flower stem from the Art Gallery stamp set onto Basic white card twice using Mossy meadow ink and cut them out using the co-ordinating Floral Gallery Die. I stamped the solid flower from the Art Gallery stamp set onto Basic White card using Flirty Flamingo ink which I had stamped onto scrap paper first. I stamped the detailed flower from the Art Gallery stamp set over the solid flower using Flirty Flamingo ink.

I cut out the flowers using the co-ordinating Floral Gallery Die. I attached the flower stems and flowers to the front panel of the card using dimensionals under the last flower. I added three large Basic Pearls to the centre of each flower. Lastly I tied a bow in a length of Fine Art Ribbon and attached it over the flower stems using a Glue Dot. To create the mechanism to hold the card upright, I stamped “congratulations” from the Art Gallery stamp set onto Basic White card using Mossy Meadow ink.

I cut out the greeting using the banner from the Floral Gallery Dies. I attached the greeting to Mossy Meadow card I cut out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I stamped the smaller floral image from the Art Gallery stamp set onto Basic White card once using Mossy Meadow ink and once using Flirty Flamingo ink which I stamped onto scrap paper first. I used the small single flower from the Art Gallery stamp set over the flowers using Flirty Flamingo ink.

I cut out the images using the co-ordinting Floral Gallery Die. I cut the flowers from the stems on the Flirty Flamingo image and attached the flowers over the Mossy Meadow image. I attached the floral image to the inside of the card before attaching the greeting using dimensionals. As I said, the card is rather large, so I created a pizza style box from Basic White card. To decorate the top of the box I added Basic White card to Night of Navy card.

I decided to create a belly band from Night of Navy card to slide over the box. I added Basic White card which I embossed using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder to Night of Navy card and then the belly band. I stamped three flower stems and three flowers from the Art Gallery stamp set as before and cut them out with the co-ordinating Floral Gallery Dies. and attached them to the embossed Basic White card again using dimensionals under one flower. I tied a knot in a length of Fine Art Ribbon and attached it over the flower stems using a Glue Dot. Lastly I added three Basic Pearls to the centre of each flower. This panel slides off easily but keeps the box nicely closed when attached.

Although a little more complicated than some other fancy fold cards I have made recently, it is so worth the effort. I love the finished card and presentation box, almost a gift on its own.

Bye for now,

Kris
