Today I have used the Pretty Petals 2 digital stamp from Miss Daisy Stamps,
one of our generous sponsors this week to make a centre easel card.



I printed the image several times on white textured cardstock, heat set,
coloured the centre of each flower, leaves and stems using Copic markers
cut one image panel into a circle then fussy cut the rest of the flowers.
I went around the edges of the fussy cut flowers with a tuxedo black marker.

This is my first time making a centre easel card, so I thought I would share some of the details:

  • 7" x 12" panel of cardstock scored at 6" so that the folded card is 7" wide x 6" tall
  • strips cut at 1 1/2" and 5 1/2" from the bottom edge to the top card fold,
    resulting in three panels 1 1/2", 4" and 1 1/2" wide
  • adhere the 1 1/2" strips to the card base
  • take the 4" x 6" centre panel and score across at 3"
  • mat each of the panels, including the inside one
  • cut the image panel into a circle 4 1/4" diameter
  • mat the image panel
  • adhere image panel to the upper edge of the lower middle panel,
    ensuring the circle in aligned evenly when the card is closed flat
  • adhere multiple layers of fussy cut flowers to the image panel for dimension
  • adhere fussy cut flowers to decorate the side panels
  • cut a sentiment panel 2" x 2 3/4" and mat same as front panels
  • adhere sentiment
  • the sentiment panel makes the wedge to hold folded front panel
    to make the centre easel fold card 

I'm really please how these fancy folds turned out and have some more pics to share.
