Triple Valentine Easel Card
January 07, 2014
WOW so excited to share my Fortieth Creative Fold Video with you. I think it is an over-the-top card, with not one but three Easels. It looks complicated, but it truly is not. Make sure you watch the video below, as I show you the simple step to create this card. Now to share all the product used on this card.
I used the Heart Collections Framelits. This is a Collection of 6 layering Hearts. The largest Scallop is what I used for the base and it uses a 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of Basic Black Cardstock.
The first easel is a piece of Whisper White Cardstock measuring 4 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored in half. It is important to remember when cutting this to form the easel that you place the top part of the framelit above the score line. I used the next biggest heart framelit for this easel. I also scored about 1 1/2" from the point of the heart on the front of the card, this is the piece the red glimmer gets glued to.
Be careful when gluing the red glimmer heart that you don't put too much glue on your heart base. You just want on the bottom section of the score to form the Easel.
The next piece is the Red Glimmer Paper and it measures 4 1/4" 4 1/4". The arrows come from the Labels Thinlit Card Dies and I just used scrap pieces of basic black, and the silver glimmer.
The White Heart is from the Hearts of Flutter Stamp Set and cut out with the matching Framelits. I stamped this with VersaMark and heat embossed with Silver Embossing Powder on a scrap piece of Whisper White. The words come from the Express Yourself Stamp Set which is a Hostess Set and is stamped in black.
The second easel is made from a piece of Whisper White Cardstock that measures 3 3/4" x 8" scored in half and cut the same way as the first easel using the next smallest heart from the Heart Collection Framelit. Again I scored the front of this card about 1 1/2" from the tip of the heart.
The Black Heart on top of this easel is cut out of piece of Basic Black measuring 3 1/2" x 3 1/4". Again I need to stress watch how you put your adhesive on as not to use too much, so your easel will work. I used the Adorning Accents Embossing Folder the emboss. I accented with Silver Glimmer Hearts made from the Fashionable Heart Embosslits.
The third and final Easel is made from a piece of White White Cardstock 2 1/4" x 4" again scored in the middle and cut like the other two easels. I only scored this card front about 3/4" from tip of heart. You can vary these score lines to fit your taste. The Red Glimmer heart on top uses out red glimmer paper and cut out again with the Hearts of Flutter Framelits. I used the Happy Valentine's Day stamp Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set and the Modern Label Punch to punch out of a scrap piece of white.
Like I said this card is very easy to make I just used lots of product that I will list below the video. Of course, you need a die-cut machine. I personally believe the Big Shot is the best. It interchanges with so many other companies dies, where not all die-cut machines do . Enjoy if you make a triple easel card, please share it with me, as I would love to see.
