Painted Blooms & Simply Wonderful Easel Card

Thursday, February 12, 2015

Hello everyone!

I have a beautiful easel card to share with you today. I just received some new things that I ordered and am excited to share with you what I made. This is a card that requires a little patience working with a bunch of fiddly little blossoms. But, it is so worth the end result for someone special.

Using leafy paper from the new collection "Painted Blooms" as a background, and several "Itty Bitty" punched flowers that I inked and used the "So Saffron" Stampin' Write Marker for a dotted center, I created three different colour Hydrangea flowers. A very dimensional card, which I love to make.

This easel card even has dimension inside!

Of course when placed in an envelope this will flatten a little. Here are other views of the inside.

To make this card -

Card Base
  • cardstock - 1 @ 10" x 7", 1 @ 7" x 5" - Score the 10" x 7" with the 10" across the top of your Simply Scored board and score @ 2" & 5"
  • Fold score lies with your bone folder
Card Front
  • cardstock - 1 @ 6 3/8" x 4 3/8" 
  • background DSP - 1 @ 6 1/4" x 4 1/4"
Card Front Tag
  • cardstock - 1 @ 2" x 3" - punch one end with one of the Tag Topper punches
  • Whisper White - 1 @ 2" x 3" - punch one end with the same Tag Topper punch and trim approx 1/16" off of each side
  • stamp with your choice of sentiment (I used "Simply Wonderful" from the Sale-a-bration catalogue)
  • attach this onto the cardstock piece and then trim off unneeded part at the top
  • attach to the card front with dimensionals
  • Using the flower from the "Itty Bitty" punch set, punch out about 3/4 of a sheet of 8 1/2" x 11" Whisper White cardstock
  • Ink edges with your choice of colours
  • Use the "So Saffron" Stampin' Write Marker to dot the flower center (brush tip)
  • use the rounded end of your paper piercer or a large ball flower stylus and press the center of the flower down into your paper piercing pad to shape the flowers
  • With your 2" circle punch punch out 2 Whisper White circles and cut them in half
  • Start layering and attaching the blossoms onto the half circles with glue dots (leave at least 12 flowers for filling in around the half circle)
  • When completely filled attach to desire position on card front with dimensionals
  • fill in around the half circle, with the saved flowers, right onto the background. This makes the dimension of the flower more realistic.
Card Inside
  • cardstock - 1 @ 6 3/8" x 4 3/8" 
  • Whisper White - 1 @ 6 1/4" x 4 1/4"
Sentiment Band
  • cardstock - 1 @ 4 1/8" x 1 3/8"
  • DSP - 1 @ 4" x 1 1/4"
  • cardstock - 1 @ 3 5/16" x 5/16"
  • Whisper White - 1 @ 3 1/4" x 1/2" (stamped with sentiment)
  • pop up with dimensionals in desired position
  • add remaining flowers to embellish
Attach the front of the card onto the 2" folded section on the front of the card

Hope you enjoyed the card and are inspired to create your own. See below for all the materials and supplies used for this card. This would make a great Easter card, or Mother's Day card.

Have fun punching and stamping!
