It's time to get down on the farm with a Barnyard Friends easel card! Easel cards are such a fun and EASY way to create an interactive card. Watch my quick video tutorial on the LDRS Creative YouTube Channel!
Let's dive right in! I stamped my images from the Barnyard Friends 4x8 Stamps as well as the Down on the Farm 4x6 Stamps with Raven Hybrid Ink and colored them with Copic markers. I used the Barnyard Friends and Down on the Farm Coordinating Dies to cut out each of the images and set them aside. To create the focal point of the scene I blended Four Leaf Ink on the bottom of a piece of cardstock and Marina Madness towards the top. I cut piece of white cardstock with one of the dies from the Delicate Stitches Scalloped Oval Dies and adhered it to the ink blended panel and trimmed away the excess. I arranged all of the images onto the oval with foam tape and set the piece aside.
I used Alloy Hybrid Ink to stamp the Old Brick Wall 6x6 Stamp onto a standard landscape A2 card and then blended a bit of the same ink around the edges for extra definition. Now let's make this standard card into a fun fold card. All we need is one extra score. I opened the card and scored just the front panel in half at 2 1/8". Now it forms an easel! I stamped a sentiment from the Down on the Farm 4x6 Stamps with Raven Hybrid Ink and trimmed it into a strip and added it to the inside of the card with foam tape. That provides a ledge for the easel to catch so that it stands up and displays easily.
I added the oval scene to the front of my card - being careful to only add foam tape on the bottom half of the oval and adhering it below the score line. If you add your tape or glue above the score line the scene will make it so that you can't fold the card in half, so be careful! That's it! See you again soon!
