Dies R Us Valentine Easel Card


Hi .. How are you today. This DT project for Dies R Us showcases an easel Valentines Day card made using lots of die cuts... outside and inside the card.  I am also using one of the newest products in the store.... ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever. It goes further than you think and only needs a little to go a long way. Watch in the store for the fine tip writing tool to compliment this product soon. It allows for fine tip gluing and is amazing.

Supply List:
Machine/ tools: Big Shot Express, Misti
Other: Paper: Pion To My Valentine, Cardstock, Gem stones, stitching


For this card I started by pulling and sizing some papers to the card base. I cut mats for pop of colour and depth and dimension to my projects. I cut lots of die accents... love sentiment, hearts, some corner pieces, then cut a border form the print papers and hand cut some pieces to make a pennant cluster accent.


With all the pieces ready I start to position them to form the card.... I move things around a few time until it is what I like.. This is an easel card so sorting options for the inside also to match the front.


I continue to glue things down. 


I picked another print paper for the inside and add the fabulous die cut corners from cardstock to match the front .. it's perfect.


Here is a side view of my card... it stands up and will be great to share on any table for Valentines Day. 

 


Don't forget to come join in the fun at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  There's a new challenge theme offered on the 1st and 15th of each month and one lucky randomly drawn winner will receive a gift voucher prize to the Dies R Us Store.  For your convenience, all the important Dies R Us links are provided below.
