Easel 3D Cards

I've made a couple of the new Easel 3D cards!   Are they ever fun and easy to do!!   They can be a little bit time consuming depending on the number of pieces to be placed, but it is very worthwhile to me!

There are currently two different sets available in the Classy Cards 'n Such online shop - Florals Mirror Design Set 1 and Florals Mirror Design Set 4.  Each packet contains four different designs with the matching easel card and envelopes.   Both of the cards below are from Florals Mirror Design Set 1.  The design sheets have a base design or picture and several detailed designs to be layered in the appropriate place with tiny foam pads to give dimension.   The detailed designs are numbered so there is no guess work as to what to place next.   All you have to do is follow the numbers on the sheet, punch out the design and then place the detailed design on top of the correct flower or other design element using tiny foam pads - either the large (1/4" x 1/4") or small (1/8" x 1/8").  Don't be fooled by the names of the foam pads though!  Both are tiny!

If you flip the base design over, it's easy to see where the punch outs are between the flower stems.  I did have to do a little bit of fussy cutting with fine tipped scissors and a craft knife on the tulip basket design, but not on the rose design.  You do need to trim the little nibs of paper off where the main design attached to the sheet, but it's no big deal.

Let me show you the cards!


Tulip Basket

I added a Happy Birthday greeting to this one from the Inspirational Birthday Rubz set.  As you can see, there is plenty of room under the tent for a handwritten note if you like.  The easel folds flat for easy mailing.


Here's the second card.  This beautiful rose design was a little simpler to do but still very elegant, I think!

I will be using this one  as a sympathy card.  Here's the side view where I hope you can see some of the dimension.

These are designs that can be used as they are or you could add additional embellishing with Stickles, ribbon and more if you like.

In addition to these card kits, there are three individual sheets of flowers that can be assembled as the focal point on your card or scrapbook page!   You can see all of the 3D art here.

Give these little beauties a try!!!  I think you will like them and that the recipients of your cards will be thrilled as well!

Remember Judy who won the last blog candy???  She chose the Fanciful Flourish for her prize.   She shared these two cards with me this week that she made with her Flourish - click here and here to see her beautiful work.

I just added a couple of Twitter buttons - one to follow this blog and the other for you to share the blog via Twitter with your friends if you would like.  Do I dare admit that I don't have a clue about how to tweet?   Yikes!!!  There are no teenagers in my house to educate me so if any of you have tips I should know about, please email me privately at beverly@classycardsnsuch.com.  Help is much appreciated!

There are still a few days left in September to take advantage of the 15% off embossing folders by using the code SEP15 at checkout!   There are several new ones this month, so please take a look here!


Thanks for stopping by!!!  Until next time...
