Butterfly Easel Card by Debbie

Happy Friday my friends,

Today is another day of Casing or just showing you some casing cards from other stampers blogs.  Debbie Henderson is a fabulous stamper and has a lot of great ideas. Her blog is http://debbiesdesignsblog.blogspot.com.

Butterfly Easel Card

Bronwyn Eastly came up with this fabulous easel card idea. As you can tell in the photo below, this tiny little easel card is actually created from the “Beautiful Butterflies Die”. I cut (1) full butterfly:

Embossed it with the “Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions Folder and sponged “Whisper White Craft Ink” over the embossing. The cardstock color is Always Artichoke:

I then added a 2nd smaller butterfly from the “Paisley Petals DSP” and secured it in the center with a “Rhinestone Brad”.

For the easel part of the card, I prepared the 2nd layer by cutting another butterfly with a piece of cardstock that was folded in half (double layer). Omit part of the tips of the butterfly wings so that the fold stays intact. You can complete this by placing the fold inside the butterfly about 1/2″:

You will notice the fold where part of the wings were omitted. When the easel part is opened, the butterfly actually sits upside-down on the backside. Using one layer of the easel part, create a fold at the half-body of the butterfly and glue your first decorated butterfly to the top portion of the fold. The bottom layer sits flat. You can fold the easel card and mail in an envelope flat. Cute, cute!!

Very cool huh.. no why can’t I come up with these ideas on my own.

Sorry for all the casing this week but it did give me a break.   Over the next several weeks, I will be showing you the 10 cards made at my July SAS held today and tomorrow.  Then I will show case the door prizes I made and then of course pictures of the gals and their winning door prizes.. so stay tuned for original work coming up.  Thanks for understanding and letting me veg this week.
