I love this new image from the Heartfelt Wedding Collection by Heartfelt Creations, just released yesterday. It's the Wedding Dove PreCut Set, and it has really pretty, intricate detail. And be sure to check out designs by the team on the HC blog - they've really outdone themselves!

Here's another easel card - I'm on a theme this week, I guess - LOL!

Instructions

Base Card

To create the easel card, start with a piece of cardstock measuring 6" x 12". Score this piece at 6" and fold on the score line. Position the Grand Scallop Circle die just above the fold, and run it through the Grand Calibur to cut out the shaped card. Score one of the sides of the card again through the middle of the circle, and fold it to create the base of the easel.

Card Face

Cut another single scallop circle of the same side from matching cardstock. This will be the base for the upright face of the card. Cut another piece of matching cardstock using the largest plain circle Nestability. Stamp the dove image using embossing ink on the vellum, and heat emboss with white embossing powder. Cut this out in a circle slightly smaller than the main card face. Color the flowers in the image on REVERSE side of the image, using markers in coordinating colors. I used Lavender Lace, Regal Rose, and Pear Pizzazz. Mount the vellum circle with the image on the plain circle.

Sentiment

Cut a scallop circle from vellum using the classic scallop Nestabilities, and stamp the sentiment in the lower portion of the circle using embossing ink on the vellum, and heat emboss with white embossing powder.

Assembly

The pleated lace is going to be slightly curved already, so it is fairly easy to shape into a circle. Arrange the lace around the single large scallop circle that is the base for the face of the card. I used a generous amount of Zip Dry under the lace, and clear tape on the inner edges of the lace to secure it. The mount the dove image panel onto the lace. Adhere the card face to the front of the folded card base. Finish the card by mounting the sentiment vellum on the bottom panel, and attaching a matching bow to act as a stop to hold the front of the card upright.
