Triple Easel Card Pictorial With Painted Petals

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

A couple weeks ago I shared a Double Twisted Easel Pictorial with you and pretty much the moment I did so, I thought about taking it up another level to a triple! It's a very special card and this was created for a very special lady for Mother's Day in the UK. Despite sounding difficult, it's really easy and doesn't take long at all to create. I completed this one in less than an hour.

By it's nature, this is a long and image heavy post, but I assure you it will be worth your time, so please do stay until the end.

Here's a look at the completed card, sat in it's box...

Here's what you'll need to create the project...
Card: 2 pieces Whisper White and 3 Strawberry Slush, cut to sizes described below
Ink: Strawberry Slush, Crisp Cantaloupe and Pistachio Pudding
Stamp set: Painted Petals
Tools and embellishments: Stampin' Trimmer, Simply Scored and Diagonal Plate, Basic Pearls, Stampin' Dimensionals, Tombow glue and Sticky Strip

For the card base, cut one of the pieces of Strawberry Slush to 6" x 9" inches

Score on the short side at 3"

Using the Stampin' Trimmer, or craft knife and ruler, cut down to the score line at 3" and 6"

Using the Simply Scored and Diagonal Plate, or stylus and ruler, score the two outer squares from the score line to the corners and the center panel at 1½" inches and fold the score lines

For the toppers, cut three 3" squares of Strawberry Slush card and three 2 7/8" squares of Whisper White

Stamp the Whisper White as desired using the inks and Painted Petals stamp set. Adhere the stamped squares to the Strawberry Slush. Stamp a few extra flowers and fussy cut for the easel stoppers. Stamp the inside of the card if desired. To add the panels to the base, apply Tombow to the outer triangles and rectangle

BE CAREFUL when positioning the toppers. Apply the center one straight and the outer two rotated 90° as shown

Add Basics Pearls to complete the toppers. Fold the card and open the easels. Use Stampin' Dimensionals to add the flower easel stoppers as shown in the first pic. Close the easels and put to one side (pic below taken in the box)

For the box, cut a piece of Strawberry Slush to 4 3/4" x 9 3/4" and Whisper White to 4 13/16" x 9 13/16"

Score both pieces at 3/4" on all sides

Fold the score lines and stamp the top as desired. To stamp on the lid as I have, keep the card folded while stamping

Cut and notch in the corners and adhere with Sticky Strip to create the box. Pop the completed card in the box and close the lid

If you're still with me now, THANK YOU! I hope you've found this pictorial enjoyable and I hope I've inspired you to give it a try. I'd love to see your creation if you do!
