June Wedding?

>> Thursday, April 26, 2018

Good morning!

Today I've done some wedding/anniversary cards, very simple
 barely any coloring.  I used a silver color pencil and 
some Zest-it to blend.
Below I have a picture tutorial of how to make this easel card.

The dies on both cards are from Spellbinders.

I used some gold Twinkling H2Os to put just a bit of color on the flowers.

Make the usual 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 (A2) card base then score the top again at 2 1/8".
Place a die that will fit, without going to the edges of the 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 top.  The middle of the die should be on the score line at 2 1/8" and place the cutting plate right at the score line as shown below.

This will ensure that the die only cuts to the score line.

The rest is self explanatory just looking at the
photos below.
Fold on score line to a mountain.
The last thing to remember on any easel card is to make a "stop" 
on the inside by popping something up, a layer, flower or anything like that.
On my cards above I have a popped up layer.  The "stop" should be at 
about the half way mark so that the front of the card stands up properly.

Thanks for visiting today!
