Hi again! Now that I have wished you a very late Halloween, I want to keep the pumpkin rolling with a few additional comments. Kaye, at Lasting Impressions, recently design a Card Kit that I immediately fell in love with and decided to tweak it a bit, since I had the pumpkin template, and turn it into an Easel Card. If you have never made an Easel Card, it’s really quite simple. It’s basically an A2 card with an additional score line. Here’s Kaye’s Kit and, by the way, it’s on sale so go grab one:
Here is my Easel version:
Start with your 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ card base, scored at 4 1/4″ and again, only on one end, at 2 1/8″. That second score line will give you the “easel” you need when you bend it in an upright position. The card design itself will be glued to that bottom half of your easel. Hopefully, you can see what I mean in the middle photo above. The dotted paper in front is mounted high enough so that the front edge of the card rests against the edge of the dotted paper!
If you are in the North Salt Lake area, you might want to take one of Kaye’s monthly classes. She is amazing! Last month she turned an adorable, long-legged chicken into a crow … I kid you not! 🙂 Here is her Crow Tag:
Of course, I had to give this idea a try and I turned my “chicken” into a 4 1/2″ square crow Card. Here’s my version:
Thank you Kaye for giving me permission to pinch your wonderful ideas. I hope if any of you have these templates, you will give them a try and if you are in the area, please join Kaye for her November class on the 7th at 6:30 p.m.
Embossing joys, 🙂 Donna
