Spring Themed Easel Card

Hello! Welcome back to my blog. Today's project features images from the Blank Page Muse March 2024 Digital Page. This digital set includes mostly St. Patrick's Day themed images. A few of the ephemera can be used for another occasion like I did with today's project.

I downloaded the paper strip image and cropped the strip to separately print the pattern. I printed a pattern on one side of the paper, and printed the other pattern on the other side to come up with a double sided patterned paper. I made this paper into a gift card envelope using the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board. 

I cropped the daffodil from the ephemera sheet. I printed three daffodils, with one slightly larger than the other two, and the other one flipped for a different orientation. I fussy cut these daffodils, leaving a small white border around it. To fit the daffodils in the envelope, I did a bit of surgery, trimming off a part of the bunch. 

For the card base, I trimmed a cream cardstock at 10" x 3 3/4". I scored this in half on the long side, coming up with a 5" x 3 3/4" card. I scored the front of the card base at 2 1/4".

I trimmed a scrap of the double sided printed paper at 5" x 2 1/4". I added embossing to this panel using the Altenew Wicker Texture 3D embossing folder. I blended ink to the the raised areas with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress ink. 

For the sentiment, I adhered the scrap daffodils on a cream cardstock. I die cut this using a Paper Smooches sentiment die. I added some variation to the sentiment by creating a banner to stamp the rest of the sentiment on.

I adhered this to the bottom half of the inner fold of the card which also acts as a stopper for the easel card.

I adhered the flowered envelope to the front fold of the card. I die cut a ribbon using a yellow felt and adhered this to the front of the envelope using a glue gun. I also added a yellow gem to the center of the bow.

The top portion of the front of the card was stamped using a stamp from the Blank Page Muse Scribble & Scratch Mixed Media Set 2. I stamped this using gold and light blue dye inks.

I added foam to the back of the flowers to give it some dimension.

I hope you like today's project. Below is a short video showing off the interactive feature of this card. Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!
