I have another card to share with you today. I used the Birthday Bash cart and KI Memories patterned paper on this one. I am sharing the tutorial with you also because I was asked to do so by a very good friend. Let me warn you ahead of time, this post is super duper long and picture heavy. Thanks for the visit and have a FABULOUS day!
Step 1: Start with a sheet of 4 1/4 by 11 sheet of cardstock
Step 2: Score at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2
Step 3: Decide how you want to mat your card, you will need (2) identical mats. My card has a white mat cut at 2 1/2 by 4 and the turquoise mat is cut at 2 1/4 by 3 3/4.
Step 4: Adhere your mats to your card base.
Step 5: Cut your inside mats. My white mat is 4 by 5 1/4. and the black mat is 2 3/4 by 3 3/4, the turquoise mat is 2 1/2 by 3 1/2.
Step 7: You are going to want to set your card up like the picture and if you haven't already, cut out your Cricut cuts or whatever elements you will be using on your card. This step allows you to lay your card out and find out where you want your images to be placed on your card and where to place your pop dots on your images.
Step 8: This is where you begin to embellish your card and add the easel part of the elements you desire.
Step 9: Lay your card out flat into the A2 orientation and continue to embellish and add the elements you desire.
Step 10: Set your card up and admire your awesome hard work.
Thanks for sticking with me to the end. This is my first blog tutorial and I wanted to make sure that everyone understood. Teaching Secondary Math is a lot easier than this but we got it done. I hope everything was clear. Again, this is not my original easel card technique...I was blog surfing as usual and for the life of me, I can't remember the name of the blog where I saw this but here is how I did the Apple Easel card a week or so ago and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
Thanks again for hanging around.
