Dynamic Duos #3

It's a Black Tie theme for week three at Dynamic Duos.  This week, Daffodil Delight is teamed up with Black to complete the Duo and Dry Embossing is the Dessert Option.


I decided to play around with a different style of easel card and this is what I came up with -

DD #3


This Week's Duo -


Here's a little tutorial I put together.  The pictures should be self explanatory.  All products are from Stampin' Up!


1.
This is the front of the card made from a piece of A5 card stock.

2.
Glue down the side panels and score through the centre of the middle panel to form the easel part of the card.
3.

4.

5.
It sits down flat for easy postage.

My inspiration for this style of easel card came from a magazine.  I must admit that I didn't read most of the instructions, but mainly looked at the picture:)  From memory, I think the featured card is much larger than the one that I made.



For more inspiration, make sure you visit the other DT 's blogs.  Happy crafting!



PS: I was so excited to get this comment at Splitcoaststampers again this week for my DD #3 card.  Thanks, TrishG from Canada.

Congratulations! In the General Stamping forum, you're in the FAVORITES for the week ending May 20, 2012. See post #44.

Hi Bronwyn

I am a keen follower of your blog and think your ideas and designs are fabulous. I am in South Africa - so we don't have any of your products here - so I have to improvise... :-)

I hope you don't mind, but I created a tutorial based on your card idea.... I have provided a link to your initial idea - hope that's OK.
