Happy Monday everyone! It is my turn to share a Project of the Week with you here and at the Repeat Impressions blog. I will be showing you how to make a Double Easel Card and throwing in some tips on making paper piecing easier as well. I started with a 7 x 7 inch navy blue card, scored in half. The front half of the card is cut with a paper cutter at the 3 1/2 inch mark up to the score line (also 3 1/2 inch line horizontally.) Then fold the top sides down diagonally from the outside corner the the center. Here are a couple pictures of what that will look like:
I applied the hot air balloon pieces to 3 1/2 inch squares of navy blue and attached them to the bottom only of the folded triangles. I stamped "Soaring by to say Hi" twice on a 7 x 1 inch cloud piece and attached that with pop dots to raise and hold up the two easels. I cut a 2 1/2 inch white square in half diagonally to create a triangle, and added a die cut "hi" (Paper Smooches) and a gem to complete this double easel hello card.
The card lays flat to mail as you can see from this photo. I love trying new folds and hope this has inspired you to try something new too.
I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenges at 613 Avenue Create and Scribble and Scrap.
