One sheet easel card - Trimcraft's Free Spirit

The Free Spirit paper pads from Trimcraft are available in 3 different sizes - 6x6, 8x8 and 12x12 . The patterns, colours and finishes on the papers are very luxurious, with golds, teals and purples. Some of the papers are glittered and look amazing!
I've made a "one sheet" easel card and hope you will give it a try too :)

You will need: 
Dovecraft A4 Heavyweight white card
Trimcraft First Edition "Free Spirit" 8x8 paper pad
Dovecraft A4 Tropical Card Pack DCBS206
Dovecraft Gold Glitter Glue
Dovecraft Rainbow Ribbon DCBS 202
Simply Creative 6mm adhesive pearls
Dot & Dab Foam Tape
Dot & Dab hi tack tape
Dot & Dab Tacky Glue

To make it:
 1. Take an A4 piece of white card and score it at 9cm , 18cm and 27cm on the long side.

 2. Attach foam tape along the inside of the end folded piece.

 3. Fold the narrow piece back onto the card and this becomes the stopper for the easel.

 4. Cut the following pieces of card - white card - 14.5cm x 11cm
                                                       metallic card - 20.5cm x 2.25cm
                                                                             - 20.5cm x 8.5cm
                                                                             - 14cm x 10.5cm
                                                   patterned paper - 20cm x 1.75cm
                                                                             - 20cm x 8cm
                                                                             - 13.5cm x 10cm
 5. Glue the pieces together as shown above.

 6. Cut a piece of white card measuring 7.5cm x 7cm and a piece of metallic card measuring 8cm x 7.5cm. Cut an elephant from the paper pad. Glue the white card onto the metallic card and attach the elephant with foam tape.

 7. Add a length of ribbon across the top of the elephant panel and secure at the back with hi tack tape. Add glue on the back, leaving a little space free from glue at the bottom,
 and attach to  the card.

8. Add a little length of ribbon on the left and tie in a knot.

 9. Cut 3 strips of patterned paper measuring 1.5cm x 3cm, cut tails at the ends and glue up in below the elephant panel. Add gold glitter glue around the points and pearls on top.

 10. Cut 3 feathers from the paper pad and glue at the bottom right of the elephant panel.

  1. A really beautiful card Ruth. I was amazed it was all done from one paper pack (which I am now going to have to get).


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment, it's lovely to hear from you. Ruth
