Instructions: 

Cut a piece of white cardstock 12” x 6”, score at 6” along the long side and fold to create a base card of 6” x 6”. Cut a 6” x 6” panel from the paper collection and adhere to the front of the card base. Cut a piece of patterned paper 5” x 6” and die cut the edges using the plain edge die from the HCD1-7211 Decorative Pocket Accents Die. Repeat with white cardstock and adhere the patterned paper to the white cardstock. Die cut an oval out of the middle of this with the second largest plain edge die from the HCD1-7156 Eyelet Ovals & Basics Die – Small. Die cut an oval out of a panel from the paper collection using the second largest plain edge die from the hCD1-7156 Eyelet Ovals & Basics Die – Small and using the previously cut panel adhere the oval to the centre of the card. Adhere the panel to the front of the card with scrap heavy cardboard. Die cut two decorative dies and the lace edge from the HCD1-7211 Decorative Pocket Accents Die set out of white cardstock. Add Frosting Powder with spray adhesive and adhere the decorative dies to the panel as shown.

Stamp the branch images from the HCPC-3775 Flowering Dogwood & Doves Stamp and the HCPC-3774 Flowering Dogwood Branches Stamp in Magenta Hue ink on Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper. Using the stack and store daubers colour the flowers with Magenta Hue ink, the leaves with Leaf Green ink and the branches with Coffee ink and die cut with the coordinating dies. Sponge the edges of the flowers with Cactus Flower ink. Add Crystal Clear glitter to the images using Dries Clear glue on a damp sponge, trim and adhere on the top left draping over the oval.

Stamp the dove images from the HCPC-3775 Flowering Dogwood & Doves Stamp in Jet Black ink on white cardstock and die cut with the coordinating die. Sponge the edges with Shadow Grey ink and the tail feathers with Magenta Hue and Cactus Flower inks. Add Frosting Powder with Dries Clear glue on a sponge and adhere to the top right and bottom left of the oval over the flower images.

Stamp the flower images from the HCPC-3773 Flowering Dogwood Stamp set in Magenta Hue ink on Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper. Sponge the centres with Vivid Chartreuse ink and die cut with the coordinating dies. Sponge the edges of the flowers with Cactus Flower ink and shape using the 3D Floral Basics Mold. Assemble and add Frosting Powder to the flowers using Dries Clear glue on a damp sponge. To make the stamens, die cut the stamens from the HCD1-7129 Flowering Dogwood Die out of the Honeydew card. Wrap these stamens around the green bead stamen and secure with Dries Clear glue. Add Dries Clear glue to the tips of the card stamens and then dip into the Lettuce Entertain You Prills. Pierce the centres of the flowers and thread the stamens through. Trim the ends of the wires once the glue is dry and add the flowers to the card as shown over the branches and under the doves.

Stamp the leaf images from the HCPC-3773 Flowering Dogwood Stamp set in Library Green ink on Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper. Colour with Leaf Green ink and die cut with the coordinating die. Shape the leaves using the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit and add Crystal Clear glitter to the leaves with Dries Clear glue on a damp sponge. Adhere around the flowers as shown.

Trim the sentiment from the paper collection and adhere to the right of the card as shown.

Double Easel Easter Card

Welcome back.

Today I am featuring a double easel card using the Flowering Dogwood collection.  I think the white embossing makes it look like there is snow on the flowers and branches.

Materials Used:

Cardstock – Bazzill White Smooth, Heartfelt Creations Vellum

Paper – Heartfelt Creations Flowering Dogwood

Stamps – Heartfelt Creations Flowering Dogwood, Flowering Dogwood Branches

Dies – Heartfelt Creations Flowering Dogwood, Flowering Dogwood Branches, Luggage and Tags, Spellbinders Decorative Label Eight, Labels Eight

Inks – Memento Lilac Posies, Bamboo Leaves, New Sprout, Colorbox Dark Brown, Frost White

Ranger White Embossing Powder

Prills – Lettuce Entertain You

Art Glitter Ultrafine Glitter – Crystal

Art Glitter dries Clear Glue

Dove Blender pen

Heartfelt Creations Deluxe Shaping Kit

Instructions:

To make the easel fold a piece of white cardstock in half and use the largest die from the Decorative Labels Eight set place over the folded card with the long edge just over the fold.  Do the same with the smallest die.  This creates the hinge.  Score along the center of one side of the hinged card and fold it toward the centre to create the easel. Die cut a single decorative label eight die of both sizes. Add to the front of the easels.  Die cut the coordinating size die from the Labels Eight set using the grey paper from the Flowering Dogwood papers and adhere to the front of the hinged die cuts.  Adhere the smaller hinged card to the front of the larger hinged card to create the double easel.

To make the flowers stamp the images from the Flowering Dogwood and Flowering Dogwood & Doves sets with Colorbox Frost White ink and emboss with Ranger White embossing powder on vellum.  Heat set and then colour the back of the images with New Sprout and Lilac Posies.   Die cut the flowers and touch the edges with the Lilac Posies.  Follow the same procedure with the leaves but colour the back with Bamboo Leaves before die cutting.  Use the Deluxe Shaping Kit shape the flowers and leaves.

Stamp the Flowering Dogwood branches from the Flowering Dogwood & Doves stamp using Colorbox Frost White ink and emboss with Ranger white embossing powder on vellum twice.  After heat setting colour the back of the image.  I have used a Dove blender pen to colour the branches with the dark brown ink and to put a touch of Lilac Posies on the flowers and Bamboo Leaves on the leaves.  Due cut and use the Deluxe Shaping kit to shape the leaves and flowers.

Adhere the branches to the front of the back hinged card and add the extra flowers and leaves.

Die cut the Easter Greeting tag and adhere to the front hinged card.  Add flowers on the left side as shown.  Cut a small piece of white card ½” x 1” and adhere to the base of the front to hold the easel in place.  Add the flowers and leaves as shown.  Finish off with adding crystal glitter to the flowers and leaves for some sparkle.

Instructions:

Cut a piece of white cardstock 10” x 7”, score at 5” inches to fold and make the base card.  Cut a piece of white cardstock to 5” x 7” and then using the leafy edge from the Delicate Border Basic set die cut each end of the cardstock.  Cut a piece of patterned paper 5” x 6” and using the plain cutting edge and the stitch edge from the Classic Border Basics die cut the edges.  Cut an oval out of the centre of the patterned paper.

To create the frame die cut the large oval from the Floral Oval set.  Die cut another two of the same oval but this time using the Spellbinders Oval die cut the centre out and adhere the two pieces together.  Adhere to the base floral oval with foam tape for depth.  Adhere the patterned paper oval into the centre and then adhere the entire frame to the base card.

To make the flowers and branches I have stamped the images from the Flowering Dogwood and Flowering Dogwood & Doves sets with Colorbox Frost White ink and embossed with Ranger Bridal Tinsel on vellum.  Colour the back of the images with Bamboo Leaves and Angel Pink.  Die cut and using the Deluxe Shaping Kit shape the flowers and leaves.  Add the Lettuce Entertain You Prills to the centre of the flowers.Cut the fronds of the branches in half and arrange around the oval frame.  Place the flowers as shown in the card.

To make the dove stamp the image twice from the Flowering Branches set with Colorbox Frost White on vellum and emboss with Ranger Bridal Tinsel embossing powder. Colour the back of the image with the white ink and then die cut.  Shape using the Deluxe shaping kit and adhere to the centre of the frame with Art Glitter Dries Clear adhesive.  Add the second dove over top and fold the wings until they stand out for depth and dimension.

Paint all the flowers and dove with the Spectum Noir Clear Sparkle Overlay for a lovely sparkly finish.

Finally die cut the tag using the Luggage, Tags and Labels die and adhere to the card.
