Quad Easel Easter Table Centerpiece

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!

While we were making the triple easel cards at Julia's recent team training, I mentioned to everyone that while triples are rightly stunning, there is an easel that is an absolute show stopper! Everyone looked at me quizzically and their mouths dropped open when I mentioned the QUAD! What the?

I quickly sketched one out and they all asked if I'd do one for them. Sadly, there wasn't time then, but just a day later Julia asked "Fancy doing some crafting?" I didn't really need asking LOL. While she got on with some last minute cards, I quickly worked out the dimensions and began cutting the card pieces for what would become our Easter table centerpiece and it's matching gift box.

Ok, enough chatter, here's the box lid...

A peek inside the box...

And two of the facets when the easels are open...

Card: Thick Whisper White
Ink: Real Red
Stamp sets: All God's Grace (crosses and facet sentiment) Crazy About You (Happy Easter)
Tools and embellishments: Flower from Itty Bitty Accents punches, Ovals Framelits, Fancy Fan TIEF (retired) and Basics Rhinestones
Adhesives: Stampin' Dimensionals and Tombow

I didn't take step by step pix this time, but I am planning on creating a couple similar designs soon, so will at least do a construction pictorial then.

I'll be back soon with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then.
