Triple Easel Cards
For my Facebook live on Monday, September 20, 2021, I made a triple easel card. It takes a little measuring, cutting and scoring, but the WOW effect of the card is worth the extra effort.
I got the measurements from SplitCoastStampers.com. Here is their video.
I make a sample that I use to advertise my weekly video. Here's my sample. Don't we all need masculine birthday cards?! I used the Nature's Beauty stamp set.
And the card I made during my live!
Closed it looks very busy, but....
Prop up the 3 panels, and WOW! (Sorry--it's difficult to photograph.)
I used the Dragonflies punch to add a pop of color to the black and white side of the Pattern Party DSP. (That's a pack of paper available only to hostesses. See page 171 in the annual catalog.) The sentiment can be found in the Sweeet Strawberry stamp set.
Want to make your own? Here's how.
Start with a card base that's 5-1/4" X 8-1/2". (The 5-1/4" is more easily divided into the 3 panels, instead of our usual 5-1/2".)
1- Score along the 8-1/2" side in half at 4-1/4".
2- Turn card base to the left 1/4 turn, so the front of your card is at the top of your paper trimmer/scorer. Make 2 cuts from the edge to the center fold at 1-3/4" and 3-1/2".
3- Score each of the 3 flaps on a diagonal from the top right corner to the lower left corner at the fold.
Your card base should look like this:
To decorate the card with additional card stock or patterned paper, use 3 pieces that are 1-1/2" X 4", cut on the same diagonal that your scored the card base.
Decorate as desired, making sure any items you want to pop up do not extend beyond the card edges when closed and also, do not adhere items across the score lines or they won't pop up.
Hint: I used a think piece of 1/2" X 4" acetate adhered between 2 identical punches to pop up my sentiment on the deer card and 2 large dragonflies on my second card.
On the inside of the card, be sure to include 3 small items raised with Stampin' Dimensionals that will hold the 3 easels up. I used punches dragonflies in my video. (And scraps of card stock stamped with grass on the deer card.)
Don't hesitate to contact me if I can help you better understand the instructions. Happy Stampin'!
