Shoji Triple Easel Cards

Shoji Triple Easel Cards

Karen Wyngaard

Looking for a fun and interactive card idea to impress your friends? Tune in Friday, April 9 at 9:30am to learn to make four cool triple easel cards.

There are two ways to participate in the virtual workshop: Visit the VOLUME Facebook group, or watch the presentation on the Great Lakes Scrapbook Events YouTube channel. Regardless of which you choose, you'll be provided with a link to a landing page where you can find project details and instructions.

During Friday's presentation, Tricia will demonstrate how to transform five 12x12 papers into a set of four impressive cards using a brand-new card making formula. I was lucky enough to take the instructions for a test drive. 

Begin by selecting five sheets of paper. I chose papers from the Shoji collection: One sheet each of the Black, Red and Purple plain, as well as a Card kit print.

Next, trim the papers according to the instructions. After trimming, sort the components to create each of the four cards. Assemble and embellish with stamps and/or card kit cutparts.

Here you can better see the triple easel design of the card. The best part? Each card folds completely flat for mailing in an A2 envelope!

Foam adhesive circles are your friend when it comes to assembling these cards. Adhering the smallest panel at the front of the card with foam adhesive creates the "stopper" for the front easel. (Sentiment from the Beautiful Noise stamp sheet.)

Adding foam adhesive to fussy-cut flowers provides a bit of dimension to the cards.

The card below features a sentiment from December's Kintsugi stamps.

Like what you see? Don't forget to tune into Tricia's virtual workshop on Friday! Can't make it? The replay will be available both on Facebook and YouTube after the event.

Happy crafting!
