Happy Monday crafters, Sue here with an easel card that’s perfect for the guy in your life. I have a hard time making masculine cards but with the right colour choices and the addition of a little plaid you can be well on your way for a more masculine project.
Today I’m using the Bird House Pop Up Easel Die set. This set can make a card that has a wintry feel but if you leave off the snowy borders these dies are great all year long.
I chose to use colours from the Fresh Aqua Paper Pad and found a plaid patterned paper that matched perfectly. I really like the little bit of plaid peeking out around the edges of the house, it adds some whimsy to the design.
The cardinal was die cut from red paper and I added a bit of dark red ink around the edges to add depth.
Instead of my usual white card base I went with cream to go along with the cream stripes in the plaid. I stamped the sentiment in the bird house door and added another sentiment on the inside of the card. This one is popped up so it can keep the easel card standing up.
This card mails flat in an A2 envelope, which I love! You can easily turn this into a pretty spring card by using pastel papers and embellishing the bird house with flowers and leaves. It’s such a versatile die set to have in your stash. Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful week!
Well Hello there Crafty friends, and to all the viewers in the United States, "Happy Thanksgiving." The winter season is now among us here in Michigan and what better way to bring on the the season than a festive winter themed card. The Bird House Pop-Up Easel set paird with the new Wintertime Sentiments stamps make a great combo.
For the card base I am using a 4.25 x 5.5 inch piece of plaid pattern paper from the new Woodsy Plaid 6x6 Paper Pad from Memory Box that I adhered to a white cardbase. This patterned paper goes well with any woodsy themed project and is perfect for masculine themed cards.
Although this die set is meant to make pop-up easel cards the focal image of the birdhouse and bird are great die cut imges for regular A2 size or A7 size cards. The birdhouse was die cut from the new woodgrain cardstock from Memory Box and the snow and accents, cardinal, greenery and bird house accents were all die cut from colored cardstock scraps from my stash.
This die set is a must have for your collection as it can be used for various seasons, and perfect for masculine card desings. The sentiment was stamped in Versa Fine Onxy Black ink. While the birdhouse was sponged with Vintage Photo distress ink to provide more dimension and depth to the the focal image of the card. The whole image was popped up on 3M foam tape.
I sincerely hope you have enjoyed today's card share and found inspiration. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
Until next time Happy Crafting!
Hi there crafty friends, Candice here. I am back on the blog today to share with you another festive card design. Today I am using the Bird House Pop Up Easel Set. This 10 piece die set makes the cutest bird house that can be used all year long. This die set can create a standalone pop-up easel card or you can use the dies to create a simple focal point image for a card front.
I chose to make a standalone bird house focal image for today's card. I used a couple shades of brown and cream card stock from my stash to create the base and roof of the bird house. I also used a woodgrain embossing folder to create the faux wood design on the birdhouse for extra demension.
There is only one bird die in the set. However, the die can be flipped to create two birds facing in opposite directions. The details on the neck and beak of the birds are colored in with my Copic markers
The snow accents were made from a Snow Marker and quickly dried with a heat gun to create the added snow dimension.
The sentiment "Tis the Season" was stamped in Versamark ink and heat embossed with fine detailed white embossing powder. The greenery on the card uses two shades of green card stock for added interest. I think this card is absolutely stunning. There is so much detail and tons of layers and dimension. Although there were several steps for making this card, I do think it is a great option for mass producing for this year's Christmas cards to family and friends.
Thank you all for stopping by today. I hope you have enjoyed this card share and found inspiration. Until next time, happy crafting.
