Easel Card using Peaceful Poppies

Hello! I thought I would try another easel card using some more of the beautiful DSP and elements from the Peaceful Poppies Suite. I love this DSP. It makes me happy….and, since I’ve been a bit restless during this quarantine, happy is a good thing…..

Let me tell you how I made this card:

~ Cut a piece of Gorgeous Grape card stock at 8-1/2” x 4-1/4”. Along the long side, score at 4-1/4” and 6-1/2”. Fold along those score lines into an upside down “V” shape. Cut another piece of Gorgeous Grape card stock at 4-14” x 4-1/4 inch.

~ Cut your Peaceful Poppies DSP at 4-1/8” x 4-1/8”.

~ Cut Whisper White card stock at 4-1/8” x 4-1/8”.

~ Now, on to the dies to make your tag. Using your die cutting machine and the Painted Labels dies, cut two—-one in Whisper White card stock and another using the Peaceful Poppies DSP. Stamp your sentiment on the Whisper White piece. I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Carefully glue these two pieces together creating a shadow effect.

~ I really like these black “shelf” elements so I used them to add a little something extra behind my tag. I placed this towards the bottom of the card so both sentiments could be read together.

These are both the same size. It’s my photography skills that make them look different

~ Time to put your card together. Adhere all of the top layers together and pop up your tag with sentiment using dimensionals. Adhere that top layer to the upside down “V” making sure things are even on the bottom. You want your card to stand up nice and straight.

~ Using another black element, glue to the Whisper White card stock down towards the bottom. I am using that piece to help the top of the card stand up. Stamp your sentiment under that element. Add some bling and this card is done!

I hope you enjoyed today’s card. It was a fun one to make. Stay well and Happy Crafting! Colleen

Colleen Light Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator and DIY Crafter I love all paper crafting and I’ve been a Stampin’ Up! Independent demonstrator since 2018. Not only do I love the Stampin’ Up products but I am also working towards my quilling accreditation through the Quilling Guild. You will see some of those cards pop up every now and then. I started this latest paper crafting hobby of mine following an accident. I use it as my own form of occupational therapy (we nurses can get creative with our therapies.. haha). What I found was a great admiration for my fellow creative demonstrators and a great sense of community. I especially enjoy sending out my hand-crafted cards. It makes me happy when people tell me they save the cards!! If you are in the United States, I would love to be your demonstrator or have you as a member of my team. Check out the details of becoming a demonstrator at my on-line store (the discounts are definitely helpful). Feel free to drop me a comment! I look forward to working with you.
