Centre Easel Card

Hello, Crafters.

Today's video shows how to make a Centre Easel Card - this is my fourth out of five fancy fold cards I promised. 

You'll recognise the image and design on the easel card as I based it on the card I shared here on Monday.

I used the same image, decorative strip

and sentiment, but that's where the similarities end.

I've been very aware that recently I've been using pink and blue for a lot of my cards, so I've tried to use other colours! 

Yesterday's card was black and yellow, and these two easel cards are in Cherry Cobbler and Lemon Lime Twist. 

Let's see how long I can keep up ringing the changes. 

The size of the easel card is the same size as a normal card, and fits into a regular envelope.

The Designer Series Paper (DSP) I used for the Cherry Cobbler card is from one of our Christmas 2017 sets, but fits in nicely with non-Christmas cards.

This is another excellent example of the brilliant versatility of Stampin' Up! products.

With the easel card, there's room on the Whisper White layer, under the easel, where a greeting can be written, or it could be written on the back of the card.

On the Cherry Cobbler card, when I first stamped the You Are One Of A Kind sentiment, I smudged the ink. 

I didn't want to adhere the new sentiment straight onto the smudged one because it makes it obvious that I'd made a mistake! 

Equally I didn't want to put it on Dimensionals, because the error would be easily seen if someone looked under the new sentiment! 

Instead, I adhered five layers of cardstock together, then put the sentiment on top and adhered it over the mistake.

Like this nobody would know there's a mistake underneath it.

I hope you enjoy today's project. That's about it from me today, so until tomorrow, happy crafting.



  1. Really lovely, Jan ... this is one of my favourite "Fancy Fold" cards and while I wasn't quite prepared to like the Lemon Lime Twist version as well as your "original", I ended up loving it! Like you, I bought up lots of those pearls too before they ran out! (Much easier to line them up perfectly.) Thanks again for a great video tutorial! Not a difficult card to make at all, but still makes a statement with taking it beyond the "usual" for sure! TFS

    1. Hi, Geraldine. You'll probably remember I was not a fan of Lemon Lime Twist when I first saw it, but I really like it now! Yes, this is one of the easiest fancy-fold cards there are. ☺ Happy crafting, JanB.

  2. Another great 'fun fold' project Jan, I have done easel card before but not with the main image centrally and this is a great effect will be giving this one a go. :O)

    1. Hi, Lorraine. Another amazingly easy fun fold! I hope you give it a go!. ☺ Happy crafting, JanB.

  3. Hello Jan
