Tutorial: Triple Easel Card

Hi Helen's here would like to share with you a tutorial that I found on Splitcoaststampers forum. Beside making scrapbook layouts, I also love making cards now. This easel card so pretty and easy to make. Kim Score will show us in her tutorial how to make it step by step.

  • Card stock
  • Patterned paper
  • Spelldinders Big Scallop Circle, Petite Circle die sets, or other similar dies
  • Big Shots or other die cutting system (I used my Silhouette Cameo)
  • Stamps for decorating
  • Scoring board
  • Strong adhesive
  • Embellishments
Step by Step:
Step 1: Cut card stock into one 4 1/2" x 9", one 4"8" and one 3 1/2" x 7" piece. Fold each piece in half.

Step 2: Using the three dies from the Big Scallop Circle die set, place the largest die on the largest peeve of card stock with the die off the folded edge. Run through the die cutter. Repeat for other two piece of card stock.

Step 3: Open up the cut piece. Fold the left side on the die cut in half towards the center. Repeat for the other two cut pieces.

Step 4: Die cut each of the three big Scallop Circles from card stock. Set aside.

Step 5: Join the three folded pieces end to end. With each unfolded half attached at the bottom half of the larger one under it.

Step 6: Mountain fold the top halves of the scallop circles.

Step 7: Decorate the three big scallop circles.

Step 8: Glue the largest scallop circle to the rear mountain fold.

Step 9: Glue the medium scallop circle to the middle mountain fold.

Step 10: Glue the smallest scallop circle to the small mountain fold. Also glue a decorative strip or other decoration (ribbon/brads/etc.) at the center of the front scallop with dimensional to hold the front circle upright.

Here's a video for you to watch:
