Hello friends! Today I am participating in the Trinity Stamps Instagram Hop to celebrate its new release, Sweet Shop. You can hop on board to see the new products available and gain loads of inspiration along the way. Simply hop on here at @BobbiHartDesign. In the meantime, here’s details regarding my double easel card project.
To make this 5″ X 7″ card, I cut the following pieces from 80lb Neenah Solar White cardstock:
- a 7″ wide X 5″ tall card front panel
- a 7″ wide X 10″ tall card base, scored in the center at 5″
- a 7″ wide X 6″ tall, scored at 2″ and 4″ and folded in a zigzag design for the front layer panel. The top 2″ section was attached to the back of the 5″ X 7″ card front panel.
From the black and white pattern paper pack, I cut the following pieces:
- a 7″ wide X 2-1/2″ tall piece from the striped paper
- a 7″ wide X 2-1/2″ tall piece from polka dot paper
- a 7″ wide X 2″ tall piece from diamond paper
The papers were attached to the back and front easel panels as shown. I attached a narrow strip of black cardstock to cover the the pattern seam on the back panel. It makes it look like wallpaper and wainscoting on the wall!
Next, I stamped, colored, and die cut (using the coordinating dies) the following images: the counter, bears, bubble gum machine, candy cannisters, cotton candy, shopping bag and “sweets” sign. Using the striped pattern paper, I cut out black stripes for shelves and added the cannisters to the back wall. I also added the “sweet” sign in the middle, too.
Here’s a top view of the double easel card. For the counter, bears, bubblegum machine and cotton candy that are attached to the front easel and extend beyond the easel top, I die cut additional white, “clean” backs and attached them to the Copic-colored images to cover the bleeds.
Inside the A7 card base, I stamped the image and candy pieces in the front, added a few dots and called this one done!
