Brick House Easel Card
by Sue McRae
Happy Monday crafters! I’m joining you today with a charming little scene on an easel card.
There’s lots of die cutting on this card but it’s easy to put together. The hardest part was choosing the colour scheme.
I started by die cutting my easel piece which is from the new Porch Pop Up Easel Set. The die set is meant for a front porch scene but I used only the two dies that create the card base and added other dies from my stash to make my own scene. This makes your easel card design possibilities, endless!
For the background of the card front I used some happy yellow patterned paper and added a grass border to the bottom of the panel.
I took the Proper Brick House and die cut it several times from different shades of teal card stock and assembled the house and I added a red door for a pop of bold colour.
The trees were die cut 3 times from white card stock and once from green card stock from the new Frosted Glitter Pad. I layered these all together to create thicker trees.
I die cut some small flowers from the Floral Cluster in yellow and red card stock and added them below the windows and used the Whittle Cloud as smoke from the chimney.
I think this card could be used for many occasions and would also be great for a guy so I left the sentiment on the inside simple with Just A Note stamped on a Colwell Label. This label die cut is what helps to keep the card in the easel position but it will mail flat in an A2 envelope. No extra postage needed!
Thanks for visiting with me today and have a great week!
