Happy Spring everyone.
I truly hope everyone is okay. Even if no one has been affected by COVID-19, mental health issues can be a concern. I will admit to feeling the effects of no contact because I come from a very huggy family and since two of my live-in family are still exposed to work outside the home, we are not hugging.
Our theme this month is Mother’s day or femininity. My mom passed away in 2012, it’s hard to believe it’s been eight years already as I think of her every day. On a visit with my sister last fall, she was unpacking boxes she still had of Mom’s and came across a picture of when she was in her early 20s. It’s in a cute oval china frame and since I remembered that frame being on mom’s dresser, my sister said I could have it. I keep it on a glass shelf in my bathroom. She had long, curly blonde hair, blue eyes and is wearing a black hat. Very stylish! We were very close.
So, I decided to make this card to commemorate her memory.
This is a 4-1/4″ square Easel Fold card. I like this type of fun fold because it lends itself for a card that you have designed as an art piece. And it allows the recipient to have it on display without fear of it falling over. It’s a great fold type for adding a yearly calendar to the bottom part or even a pad of post-it notes. The stamp sets used in this project are Accented Blooms (retiring), Thoughtful Blooms (retiring) and Floral Essence.
Cutting and Scoring Measurements
Card Base is Night of Navy cut to 4-1/4″ by 8-1/2″
On the long side, score at 4-1/4″ and at 6-3/8″ to create the easel.
Cut a piece of matching cardstock to a 4-1/4″ square.
The layering pieces are:
Balmy Blue cut to 4″ x 4″
Whisper White 3-7/8″ x 3-7/8″
To see how to put this fun fold together, watch this video on Splitcoast Stampers.
