Here is a great autumn card that will be nice to display. I call it a Shadow Box Easel Card. I loved how cool the Stitched Greenery Die looked as the background of the front of the card. I also thought the sentiment looked great on colored cardstock and the tone on tone leaves were pretty. What do you think?
The simple easel creates a shadow box effect on this card. I made the easel rather small so the inside is up front and not lost in the card. Here is a video showing how I made it:
I stamped the floral image on the back with Early Espresso ink and let it dry before I colored in the image with my Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, and Old Olive Blends.
Measurements: Card Base: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ on the 11″ side, Easel mechanism: 2″ x 4-1/4″ scored at 1/2″, 1″, and 1-1/2″ on the 2″ side, Crumb Cake Stitched Greenery panel cut as seen in video with 2-3/8″ x 4″ and 2-1/4″ x 3-1/2″ stitched rectangles and Very Vanilla panel on the back: 4″ x 5-1/4″, Scraps for sentiment, pumpkin, and leaves
Thanks for buzzing by, friends…
