Reverse Easel Fold

Challenge 213 – Be Brave, Be Strong, Be Bold 

This card came about because I scored and folded a card base incorrectly and had to decide how to use it so it wouldn’t go to waste. Purely by luck my Pinterest feed had an example of a reverse easel and I figured it was the best solution to using my base. I’ve had the PP for a long time and it came from PaperWishes. It was just right for the card base with the different purples in the design. I also had the ribbon from a chocolate box so I adjusted the size to make it work for this card. The sparkly tag is a store bought die cut and I added a scrap piece of purple after stamping the sentiment and some random sprigs of leaves/flowers. Stamps are from a Wreath Builder set by GKD. Once I glued all the PP and then the tag and bow I created the circle piece for helping everything to stand up using a die set from GKD which also had the flower dies as part of the set. Die cut the flowers and leaves, inked them as you see and then glued them on both the circle and on the tag. Added the circle to the bottom panel and the point of the tag tucks into these flowers to keep it standing. There is space for a greeting either on the under part of the flap or on the back and it folds flat for mailing. It is a pretty girly card and will go to one of my friends eventually.

  1. Oh I love it! First, your card is quite beautiful. Also, because I scored a card wrong last week and wound up making my niece’s birthday card into an easel card because of that. Your card is beautiful and different, which adds to it’s charm. The fact that it’s so many shades of purple, which is always beautiful increases that, too. 😉
