Nuts About Fall Easel Card with Amazing Paper Grace October 2021 Die of the Month
Hello, Friends! Are you Nuts About Fall? I sure am, especially when I get to work with cute squirrel images, gorgeous plaids and the fabulous Amazing Paper Grace October 2021 Die of the Month. What a grand time I had pairing this gorgeous die up with papers from the Country Craft Creations Autumn Orchard Paper Collection.
Simple Layers and Sumptuous Embellishments
Although this card looks complicated, it’s actually very simple to pull together.
- First, create a 7 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ easel card base from kraft cardstock.
- Next, mat a 5 3/4″ x 4 3/4″ panel of the vintage truck foliage on a slightly larger panel of chocolate brown cardstock.
- Then mat a 6 3/4″ x 5 1/4″ panel of the autumn plaid pattern on a slightly larger panel of the same chocolate brown paper.
- Now mat all these layers onto a 7 1/8″ x 5 1/8″ panel of copper metallic cardstock.
- Next cut the squirrel image from the 8×8 cut apart page and mat on chocolate brown and copper layers. Back with a double layer of dimensionals and set aside.
- Then die cut the APG DOM from copper metallic cardstock. YOu will use just the filigree frame.
- Now die cut the center oval from the inside piece that was left from die cutting the frame. Set this aside.
- Finally, arrange all the pieces as seen in the photo with pretty fall flowers, string bows, fall leaves and Printed Beautiful Board from Reneabouquets. (Links below.)
Every easel card needs a brake, or a stopper that holds the easel portion of the card upright. I like to use the interior pocket for this purpose. Decorate it with the die cut center oval and more pretty flowers and a felt pumpkin.
A Peek Inside
You can see here how the pocket doubles as the brake for the easel. I tucked in a little blank sentiment panel and an autumn tea bag to elevate the card to gift status.
