First take a blank 8 x8 card and fold into an easel card by folding
the front in half as shown below
gorgeous foiled papers, see below photo of the pack
Stick chosen paper on the base above the black strip, see photo below
The photo below is showing the velvet ribbon i used on the base, over the black strip , wind around the card and stick down at front with sellotape.
and the sellotape wont be shown , we will add a die cut topper to cover this
smaller blue one and the black one the larger blue oval is for the topper on the front of card.
use foam tape to 3d this as the card needs some kind of raised element to make
the card stay in the easel position.
the topper pack below
Mat & layer some more of the foiled paper and mat over the black front of card as
die cut some more pieces to use as the front element.
these are the dies and papers i used below.
the oval , you will have already, just use the large blue one
one of the oblong dies i cut in half to make the topper,
this was then stuck behind the silver die cut of the same shape
the envelope when placed flat .
The card below is a DL (tall card) i matted some purple card behind and stamped the lovely lady
in black die ink, coloured in with Artiste pens, the borders are also to be found on the same
stamp, very versatile.On this same stamp is a cocktail glass and a sentiment saying, 'To someone special'
which i have used on the forever friends card which follows this one.
This card below was a fast card made with the very versatile forever friends 6 x 6 pack
great for last minute cards.
Finally a photo below of a cute Country Companions topper, decoupaged
and used for a christmas card, I cut the bunting (flags ) with the build a scene die 'tea party'
for the bunting using the Kraft notes papers ( as the previous card )
for this and also for the backing paper.
