Hugs Easel Card
by Nancy Penir
Hi and welcome! One of the new die sets Poppystamps released this spring was the Adriana Pop Up Easel Set.
I've been oohing and awing over all the designers easel cards, and wanted to give it a go.
The set of dies has just about everything you need, but if you want to embellish further, there are coordinating dies you can add.
I cut the pieces from various card stock colors, and used a decorators gilt to add gold. This gold gilt I have had for eons, and it's still usable! I found something similar for you on Amazon, if you like the effect: DecoArt, Gold ML02C-28 Metallic Lustre Wax, 1-Ounce, Rush, 1 oz. I just used my finger to apply the gold gild. Very easy, and it accentuates the lines on the die cut, and gives my card a bit of bling.
All the pieces ready to assemble. You only apply glue to the fold strip, and the piece will fold flat to fit into an A2 sized envelope.
The easel is formed when the card top slides and stops on the bottom die cut.
The inside reveals further greetings, a birthday wish.
A sideview and peek to the inside.
One last look at my easel card, this time photographed in the fairy garden, a gift from me to the grandchildren. Every year we add a piece or two. My easel card looks right at home nestled among tiny greens, and little boy fishing.
Hope you enjoyed my easel card, and are inspired to make one.
Stay well my friends!
