Two Tags Die Easel Card Tutorial

Here's a mini tutorial for a Two Tags Die Easel Card which I put together this afternoon. I hope you find it useful.

This card features a lot of brand new, Sneak Peek items so I have entered it into the SUO Challenges which is all about using your favourite new stamp set. I fell in love with this new Hostess Set called Simply Soft when I first clapped my eyes on it and I have teamed it up with some gorgeous new DSP.

Simply Soft Two Tag Easel Card

1. Cut out a piece of card stock 3 1/2" x 9" and score along the longer side at 4 1/2".
2. Fold along the score line.

3. Align the folded side just inside the straight edge of the larger tag and run it through the Big Shot to get the base of your easel card.
4. With a piece of card stock that measures 3 1/2" x 4 1/2", cut out a complete tag.

5. Emboss/embellish the single tag which will form the front of your card.

6. On the card base, fold the top score line upwards as in the above photo. Adhere the top half of the embellished tag to the top part of the base.

7. Embellish as desired. That's all there is to it!

I apologise that I have featured a combo of pinks again for another tutorial of mine. It was a spontaneous decision on this cold, bleak, Winter's afternoon to write a tutorial and this card was sitting on my craft desk half made, so I went with it.

Thanks for the tutorial, Bronwyn! I had my fingers crossed that the two tag die (and the fun flowers die) would make it into our catalogue. Can't wait to order it next month.

Thanks for another great tutorial Bronwyn. I hadn't noticed the two tags in the book but now I will have to find out if that die and the Fun Flowers die will go through my cuttlebug.
