Last Monday the technique challenge on Splitcoast was to create a different shaped card. I had wanted to create a circle Easel Card for quite a while and the challenge was all the motivation I needed to get started.

I cut a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock with the largest of the Classic Circle Nestabilities die, stamped the hill image from Taylored Expressions Hello Spring in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored it in with Copic Markers (Sheep skin: N0, N1, N3,    Sheep Face: R00, R20,    Hooves: N5, N7, N9  Hill: YG01, YG03, YG17).

I masked the image with Eclipse Tape, covered the edges back up with my Circle die and airbrushed the sky first with the Chisel tip side of Marker B00, then switched to the brush tip of marker B04 and ever so slightly added stipple flecks with that. I had added some cloud masks at different points of the airbrushing. Those clouds were cut out of Tim’s Mask sheets with the Cloud Die-namics die. White cardstock was cut with the Picket Fence Border die and adhered to the bottom of the hill.

The image was adhered to Basic Gray cardstock, which was cut by hand into a slightly bigger layer. The edges of the image were paper pierced before the layers were adhered to a Scalloped circle cut out of with the smallest of the Sour Apple cardstock Grand Scallop Circle Nestabilities dies.

A Sour Apple cardstock strip was folded in half and and a base was cut with the same Scallop circles. One of the circles was folded in half and the card top was adhered to one half of the folded side. The bottom/inside of the card was decorated similar then the top.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on Solar White cardstock. It was cut into banner form and tied to the fence on the bottom of the page with Lemondrop Twine. Three Recollection Flowers over Little Boy Echo Park paper finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day! Hugs and smiles

Circular Easel card step 1:

Take a piece of cardstock, fold in half and cut with die cut template. Make sure the fold of your card base is inside the template, so it won’t be cut.

Circular Easel card Step 2:

Score one of the card base pieces in half and add adhesive on 1/2 of the scored card side.

Cut a single scallop circle out of the same cardstock you use for the card base with the same die you used for base.

Circular Easel  Step3:

Adhere the single circle over the 1/2 of the card base to create your Easel base and decorate the top and bottom of the base.
