Create Your Own Summer

This card is so fresh and full of the sights and colours of summer and best of all it’s easy to make.

Using the same method as our last triple easel card, you can create your own summery card just by changing the paper and dies that you use.

You will need:
1 sheet of Foundations Paper Dot and Dash in Red and White 
1 sheet of white card stock
1 sheet of red card stock
Creative Expressions- Sincere Sentiments ‘Sending you Sunshine, Laughter and Hugs’
Spellbinder Hearts Circles

Spellbinders Rose Creations

Spellbinders Fanciful Flight

Spellbinders Foliage

Brilliance Pearl Poppy Ink Pad

Crystal Embossing Powder
2 Brads of choice.

Now fold the Dot and Dash in half vertically and place the three largest dies just on the fold so that they hold together when you die cut them. 

Open your largest folded Heart circle, and score and fold one panel in half to create an easel card base - this will be the anchor for your cards.

Cut out your flowers, foliage and small butterfly from the scrap and save the little hearts that fall out from the big circle.

From the white card stock, cut out three further matching Heart Circles to mount on your folded paper ones.

Cut out the large butterfly from a piece of red card stock whilst it is in the die colour through the die the parts you would like to be white with a white pen. 

Now ink the whole die cut butterfly with Versamark and emboss with crystal embossing powder. 

Use the Pearl Poppy ink pad to stamp your sentiment onto the large white Heart Circle and mount onto the largest heart circle mini easel. 

Layer up the remaining white card heart circles onto the two smaller mini easels.

Arrange your flowers, foliage and butterflies using a brad for the centre of the larger flower before you glue and some Cosmic Shimmer Pearl to decorate the smaller butterfly.

For my last and smallest flower I used some of the scrap to die cut the smallest heart circle.

There - I told you it was easy. Enjoy!
