This week's Cuttlebug challenge: create an easel card! My card was created with donated papers from My Mind's Eye. This is from their "Quite Contrary" paper collection. These papers are double-sided, have a light texture, and are a nice weight. I loved working with these papers! They emboss beautifully too. I used my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder by Provo Craft.
My Favorite Things Pure Innocence "My Umbrella" stamp set
copic markers: YG95, E00, E21, E29, C3, G28
Spellbinders Nestibilities circles & squares dies
SU word window punch, label punch, and dimensionals
Bazzill card stock
Brief tutorial: I cut a 12x12 sheet of dark green Bazzill card stock into 4"x12" (I made 3 cards like this one). Score at 4", 6", and 8". Create a mountain fold in the center. On one side of the mountain (2"x4" rectangle), place some strong double-sided tape. I like to use photo tape or red-line tape. Adhere down. Now decorate as desired!
You can alter the dimensions. If you have 8 1/2" x 11" card stock, try cutting it in half (4 1/4" x 11"). Then score at 4 1/4" and 6 3/8".
Now give it a try! Don't forget to use a Provo Craft item: Cuttlebug dies, embossing folders, or your cricut somewhere on your easel card and enter it under Be Inspired #90 at Cuttlebug Challenge blog.
