Triple Easel Fold with Rooted in Nature

Triple Easel Fold with Rooted in Nature

Welcome, so happy that you’ve stopped by today. I’ve got a pretty special project to share. It’s my Dad’s Father’s Day Card. When I created the triple easel fold for this card, I knew I wanted to highlight the Rooted in Nature set. Using rich earthy colors, and the lovely images in the set, the card came to life and was perfect for this special occasion.

Because the card base is so easy to score and fold, this triple easel fold card can be mass produced for any occasion. My rich color palette of Blackberry Bliss, Cajun Craze and Tranquil Tide is one of my favorites. I’ll be sad when Tranquil Tide retires on June 3rd.

Each panel of the triple easel fold card has its own little message. In this one, I used the stamp from Forever Lovely for the “love you”. Don’t you just love the embossing on those leaves? The dies in the set do all the work.

The Flourishing Phrases stamp set had the perfect sentiment for my second panel. My Dad is such a faith filled person, he will love this one. And, WOW, I’m in love with the new Stitched Nested Labels Dies. These will debut on June 4th. in the new catalog. Need a catalog? Leave me a message here, and I’ll get one off to you.

The final panel on the triple easel fold has one of the most meaningful images for Dad and me. I love that oak tree image and he is a WONDERFUL person. I wish you all could know him.

With this fold, each panel supports the one above it. For the smallest panel, the beautiful Leaf Trinket is the little decorative stopper. Those embellishments will carry over. Woohoo!!

The best part is that when you close the card, it fits in a standard envelope.  As each panel is lifted and put into place, it reveals the next greeting on the card.  Want to create one? Need a visual? I’ve filmed a FREE tutorial for you.

You Are Wonderful Rooted in Nature Card

You Are Wonderful Rooted in Nature Card

The perfect message to send my Dad this Father’s Day,  was “You Are Wonderful”.  And lucky, lucky me, the new Rooted in Nature Bundle has both that fabulous sentiment and truly lovely nature inspired images to make the perfect card.

The color palette for my “You Are Wonderful” card is Cajun Craze, Mint Macaron, Shaded Spruce and Whisper White.  The Nature’s Poem DSP has 12 double-sided sheets in the package, two each of 6 designs in a 12′ x 12″ format.

That lovely cajun craze stitching in the sentiment was formed using a technique I learned from a fellow UK demonstrator.  Ink up the cutting side of the stitched shaped oval with a sponge dauber, place it on your stamped image and run it through the Big Shot. Easy, quick and then you can clean your die on your Stampin’ Scrub with a little Stampin’ Mist.

To add even more texture and interest, I flecked my Cajun Craze Stampin’ Write Marker onto the surface of the oval.  The metallic thread gives just enough sparkle without making the card feminine. And in my opinion, no card is complete without dressing up the inside as well.

Because it’s a fancy fold, it gave me enough room to add more of the gorgeous DSP and another, what I’m going to call, cypress tree to the inside.
