A couple of weeks ago, I had a bit of an experiment with making a circular easel card. I learned a few things along the way and decided I'd like to have another go. So here it is:
'Sending Wishes Your Way' lets this card be used for a few occasions. I've used a lot of sponging in this card to add depth and the appearance of texture. Timeless Textures stamps came in useful to give a subtle pattern to the pink scallops and the Sahara Sand circle on the base. I did find it hard to limit myself to the three colours - I really wanted to add another!
Update: I was asked if I'd share how I made the easel card. It is way easier than it looks and is no harder than a rectangular easel.
2. Unfold the base. Score a line about half-way across one of the circles. This is the base of the card.
3. Cut out a single layer of the same shape as the base. This will be your decorated front panel.
Fold along the score line of the base piece.
4. The single layer piece should be attached to the base piece once it is decorated. The card design will need to have some sort of raised piece where the bone folder is in the picture to hold the easel up.
