Framed Florets Birthday Easel Card. Touches of Ink December Blog Hop.

 Good Evening Everyone

Happy Wednesday! I hope you are all having a fabulous week. Today I'm Hopping with the amazing Touches of Ink ladies and as always there's no set theme but we are asked to concentrate on using a Suite or a Bundle.

I've decided to use the Fitting Florets Suite, as it is my Favourite (at the Minute). I just love the mix of colours and floral patterns - unfortunately the DSP will not be with us much longer - so using an Easel Fold allows me to show off lots of that amazing paper whilst I can! The Landscape style give a different effect than the usual Portrait Easel.

Fitting Florets DSP

1pc - 5 3/8" x 4 1/2"

1pc - 4 1/8" x 2 5/8"

3pc - 2" x 5 3/8"

Basic White Card Stock

1pc - 2" x 5 5/8"

Early Espresso Card Stock

1pc - 1 5/8" x 3 3/8"

1pc - scrap


On the long side, score the Crushed Curry card stock at 2 1/2" and 5" and fold and burnish, fold in half the fold the remaining score line in so you create a sort of triangle shapre for your base.

Take all the DSP and adhere to the relevant sized Polished Pink mat. Also add the 2" x 5 3 /8" of Basic white to a matching mat.

Add the largest panel to the card base, then on what will be the inside add the basic white panel and one DSP panels above. 

On the reverse of these sections add the two remaining DSP panels that will fit the space.

Stamp the 'Loved'  sentiment in white Heat embossing powder and heat set on the early espresso strip, layered up with the matching mats, to card base centrally about 1/4" away from the edge of the card with dimensionals. I double stacked mine  - This will give good height to tuck the vertical panel behind and keep the card upright.

Layer the DSP to the remaining Polished Pink and Crushed Curry. Pop some Liquid Glue onto the bottom third of the panel and adhere to the front facing pane of the card, again making sure it is centered with the sentiment and the card base.

Run a piece of Early espresso through you cut & emboss machine with the oval border , keeping the solid oval. Stamp the sentiment in versamark ink towards the top of the oval and heat set with white embossing powder and your heat tool.  Add this to the upright Panel. Place a fussy flower and some pearls towards the bottom of the oval.
