Want to make a simple fun fold easel card? It is surprisingly easy, yet many of use shy away from it thinking it too difficult. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned card maker, you will LOVE making this fun fold!
Let’s take a closer peek at today’s card, perfect for those celebrating an anniversary.
I’ve added lots of pretty touches to this card but there are really only a couple tips to keep in mind when making an easel card:
- you have to have a raised element on the inside so the front of the card will rest against it and stand open
- the front panel is only half glued to the card base front
I’ll give you the steps to make this card below, but first how about that heart on the front?
Do you know what die it’s from?
Well, that’s a bit of a trick question!
It’s actually a heart cut out of one of our Square Vellum Doilies with a die from the Love & Happiness Bundle!
Blending Brushes are the easiest thing in the world to use to add touches of delicate colour (or bolder if you want!)

Now what about that card?
Cuttin’ It Up!
- Basic Grey cardstock – 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 2 3/4″ and 5 1/2″
- Fresh Freesia cardstock– 2 pieces 4″ x 5 1/4″
- Basic White cardstock – 3 3/4″ x 5, scrap
- Designer Series Paper – scrap
Let’s Make It
- Place heart die onto the doily and run through Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine. Remove and place on an angle on the Basic White cardstock. Hold the heart down with your fingers and lightly dab your blending brush into ink and swirl ink over top of vellum, holding the heart in place. Stamp greeting off to the left. Stamp a different greeting on the bottom right of one of the pieces of Fresh Freesia. Set aside.
- Fold card so both folds are going the same way (into the middle). Glue stamped piece of Fresh Freesia to the inside. Run the second piece of Fresh Freesia through an embossing folder (I used Timeworn Type). Set aside.
- Cut two smaller hearts, one from Basic White and another from the Fresh Freesia DSP. Add dimensionals to the back and place on left hand side of inside as shown.
- Glue white panel to embossed Fresh Freesia panel then glue to the RIGHT OUTSIDE panel of the Basic Grey card, aligning it in the middle.
- Add Opal Rounds as desired.
And that’s how quickly you can made an easel card!
