Doily Easel Card – by Request


I sit here sipping on honey and lemon as I’ve had the dreaded lurgy over the last couple of days, it knocked me off my feet yesterday but I feel a little better today. My Dad tried his hand at Beekeeping this year and the honey in my drink is from his first harvest so it feels extra special.

Onto today’s freebie, I had a request on the forum from Carolyn saying

Could you consider doing easel cards with your doily files?

I have turned the doily I go to the most into an easel card for you today, I just hope this is the kind of thing Carolyn had in mind.

I cut my card base and front panel from cream textured card then folded all of the perforated lines and joined the 2 pieces together by adding adhesive to the doily half circle only on the card base. I added a gold snowflake from the Snowflake Set 4 to the front of my card and embellished with gems. I printed a sentiment on more of the same card stock and hand cut some banner edges then popped onto the bottom of the inside of the card with some 3D foam pads to act as a stopper for the front panel to lock in behind when the card is being displayed.

    Hi Bird
    I just want to thank you for this gorgeous file (and also Carolyn for requesting it). I love different shaped cards and this one already is earmarked for a card I have in mind.
    Hope your wonderful honey does the trick and you feel on top of the world soon.

    Oh, that is a BRILLIANT way to do an easel card! The fold-down part is so easy to layer with the main design. If you are interested in receiving requests, then I can see umpteen different variations you could consider creating of this card structure. All sorts of main images could be used in the doily position (a sailboat? a cake? a floral arrangement?). Anything that would look good standing up and has width at the bottom… Ooh, the possibilities!
    Hope you are feeling better soon, and thank you so much for this posting!
