Welcome to the Pals second Fun Folds Blog Hop! I must be honest, and say, that “simple” is the name of the game for me. I find this Double Easel design easy to make, and hope you’ll agree.
I began with Thick Basic White Cardstock, 4 1/4″ X 11″, scored at 5 1/2″. Next, I cut Highland Heather Cardstock, 4″ X 10 1/4″, scored at 2 1/2″ and 5″.
Next, glue the 4″ X 5 1/4″ Highland Heather Cardstock to the 4 1/4″ X 5 1/2″ Thick Basic White card base, which will look like this:
That’s the basic design; now, the fun part of decorating.
I started by using Windmill Fields Dies to cut the windmill from In Good Taste Designer Paper, and Basic White Cardstock to make the building opaque.
For the background, I cut Flowering Fields Designer Paper, 3 3/4″ X 5″, and glued it to the Highland Heather Cardstock fold, 4″ X 5 1/4″. Then, I cut larger tulip pattern for the front fold, 3 3/4″ X 2 1/4″.
The inside of the card has purple, Flowering Fields Designer Paper, cut with the largest Scalloped Contours Die, which you can see in the first photo. The paper is solid, and light enough, that your written message will be visible. Plus, there’s solid white on the opposite fold for a long letter.
The sentiment is from the Sale-a-bration, Special Moments Stamp Set, stamped in Gorgeous Grape Ink on Fresh Freesia Cardstock, cut with the smallest Stitched Rectangles Die, and attached with Dimensionals.
See how simple that was? Plus, it folds easily into our Medium Envelopes, and stands on its own when removed.
