Hey friends! This is Amanda from Twiddler's Nook joining you today with a fun, summery feeling easel card. It took a bit to get nice weather where I live and now that it's here I just want to create all the summer feeling cards. So today, I pulled out the fun Bubbles stamp and die set to create and easel card.
To start, I die cut some circles to create my card base. These measure 4.25 inches across but you could make this any size you like. There is one colored circle and two white circles. One of the white circles gets scored at 1/2 inch and 2 1/2 inches. Be sure to fold these creases really well before moving on to the next step.
When that is done, in the picture you'll see that I scribbled where I'm going to add liquid glue. The top, small section has glue added to the back of that area and the other white circle is adhered there. Then you'll add glue to the front of the larger scribble area and add your colored circle there. Now you have a card base.
Let's create our scene! Now, I have a 3 3/4 inch white circle, plus another partial to ink blend my scene. I used the Scene Builder: Clouds stencil to ink up clouds on the full circle, then die cut a grass border and inked the ground green. I used liquid glue to adhere these together.
Next, I stamped and colored images from Bubbles and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I arranged them on my scene panel as a guide to decide where I wanted to stamp and heat emboss extra bubbles in the background.
With that complete, I added some images with liquid glue and popped a few up for dimension in the scene. I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from Bubbles and cut it into a strip. Then I added a foam strip before adding it to the inside of the card. This gives your easel a stopper so it can sit on display for the recipient to see all the time.
Here is a side view of the card to see how it folds open. Isn't this so cool! I'm really excited to pop this one in the mail. I hope it brings lots of smiles to the recipient.
For finishing touches, I added black glaze pen to all the critter eyes, let it dry and added the white highlight back in later. I added glossy accents to the bubble bottle and the bubble with the mouse inside. I came in with Wink of Stella glitter brush pen for the heat embossed bubbles and love the shimmer it gives in the light.
