This is my first tutorial post and its really only a mini one as it is condensed but hopefully it will help at least one person if they are wondering how to make this style of card! :)
These are my new favourite style of card at the moment and really simple to make:
You need to start with a square piece of card. Mine was 21cm x 21cm which folds to make a DL card size - so you can use a DL card blank and easily find an envelope to fit it in! :)
Fold the square in half and make a cut from the middle of the fold (thats 10.5cm along) down to the bottom edge of the card.
Score from the middle of the fold (same point that you made your cut from) on a diagonal angle down to the bottom corners of the card and then mountain fold all the score lines to give you this:
Next cut 2 topper squares of card at 10.5cm x 10.5cm and attach to the front triangles on the base card. Remember, only stick the squares to the two 'inner' triangles on your base card or it wont fold and work as an easel. I made a note of where to put the glue in the pic above so I dont forget!
Lastly, make a stopper however you wish, mounted onto foam pads to lean the topper squares against.I used two circles on the FH challenge entry in my last post and the one below is just a strip of card that I decorated with a border punch.
That's it, card base complete! Told you it was simple! :)
Here is another double easel card I recently created for two DC challenges so you can see a finished sample:
This was for the:
* The ABC Colour Challenge 'J', colours Jet Black and Jasmine Yellow.
* Clare Curd's Weekly Sketch Challenge.
Hope the tutorial is ok, any comments/friendly criticsms welcome!Thanks for stopping by! Ni x
