Issue 148 Designer For The Day

Card making Papercraft Papercrafter Techniques Projects

There are few things we like more than a good easel card. And there’s nothing we love more than an excellent easel card. So it’s no surprise we fell in love with Meagan’s unique take on the design. Combining an eye-catching centrepiece with a bold colour scheme and sparkling motifs, Meagan utilises a well-known feature to create something that is well and truly her own. Just below, she explains beautifully why crafting is so essential to her, her thoughts on the style she possesses and much more.

1. Create an easel card base and a front panel from white. Cut black card slightly smaller than the front panel, leaving a white border. Snip star and balloon patterned paper slightly smaller than that, then fix the sections together with double-sided tape.

2. Layer matching patterned paper onto a panel of black, roughly half the size of the front panel. Matt with a section of white card. Snip a strip of thin patterned paper and matt onto black card, then secure onto the base panel to form an easel ledge.

3. Cut a dress top and skirt from black fabric. Mark score lines on the skirt, then accordion fold each side to the centre. Fix both sections to the card front, ensuring the dress can be folded flat if necessary.

4. Trim a belt shape and punch out a small flower from gold glitter card. Attach both pieces to the dress and pop a small gem over the flower. Adhere the easel ledge to the card with double-sided foam tape. Fix jewels onto the corners, then write a message to your recipient on the inside panel to complete.
