A Quad-Easel Creation

Last Thursday I took a class (by golly, I was a student!) at my LSS by Lynn, another instructor at the store.  This was an amazing card we made and I could have figured it out on my own but I thought, ah heck, take the class!  We made this ONE card, about a 7" square with multi-layers in about one hour.  Are you ready??  It's truly fascinating!


Here it is closed.  Doesn't quite lay flat and you'd have to use a bubble envelope to mail it.  And probably send a picture of it open so the recipient would know how to open it.


And open... sorta.  I didn't add little brads or crystals to hold the easels open.  I'm still thinking about that.


Side 1.  The silhouette was made using a Cricut cartridge, either Art Philosophy or Heritage. I had trouble taking pictures as we used a high gloss silver metallic paper for some layers and under this little gal. And we decorative punched the corners.  I added a crystal to represent a cameo.


Side 2: Again, a Cricut cartridge was used for the scalloped oval layers.  The stamped image is from The Angel Co.


Side 3: I'm thinking of adding some Stickles to the brad in the middle of the flower... any thoughts about that?



Side 4: Again, Cricut-cut frames.  Stamped image from The Angel Co.  The pattern papers are by Authentique.

You can also stamp on the blue layers under each easel but I decided that's a bit of overkill.  I hope to make more of these and possibly teach this at my senior group next year.
