Hello and welcome to the Ink. Stamp. Share Blog Hop. We’ve got lots of beautiful new products to share with you. So get your catalogue and Wish List out so you can start marking your favourites. My favourites keep getting added to, as I see lovely creations featuring these products.
I have just unpacked my box of new products and with so much choice I picked this cute turtle to create this Fancy Fold Easel card. The Turtle Friends bundle which is on Page 56 of the Annual Catalogue includes a fun stamp set and coordinating punch. Punches enable quick creations and that’s always a good thing when I’m in need of a card in a hurry.
Yes, I’m a cardmaker but I can be very slack with sending cards out on time. How cute is this card for those times when you miss a special someone’s birthday?
Easel Fold Measurements
Cardstock 21cm x 14.8cm (score at 5.2cm and 10.5cm on the long side)
DSP panels – 9.9cm x 7.1cm (2 pieces), 9.9cm x 14.2cm (for the inside)
Mountain Fold the score lines
The sentiment is propped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals so the card can sit up.
I stamped the turtle outline in Early Espresso. The shell was inked up in Old Olive and then I added some Evening Evergreen around the edges of the stamp using a sponge dauber. This gave the shell some nice variation in colour. Once I stamped the image, I coloured around the turtle with a combination of Old Olive and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends.
For the inside of the card, I fussy cut the pot and leaves from the Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP, adding a slit with my Paper Snips so the leaves could fit inside the pot. I added some extra shading with Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends. These 2 sentiments are one stamp which I cut in half to give me more ways to use them. It’s really easy to do and once you cut the first one … the possibilities are endless!
