Stampin’ Up! Bird’s Eye View Hugs & Stuff Easel Fun Fold Card

Good morning and Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day!  We’re getting down to the wire here, folks!  Today, the Man goes to the groomer – need to get all the tangles out and any extra hair.  His camping vacay includes a pool, so…hoping to not have the nightmare tangles that happened the LAST time!  Fingers crossed!  Tomorrow I go to MY groomer to get my hair cut.  We.  Are.  Getting.  Close!  😳😳😳

My card today is one of my favorite fun folds – a quick and easy easel!  I used a new stamp set that caught my eye from the jump – the Bird’s Eye View set.  It is SO stinkin’ cute!  And – being an image-only set, it needs a sentiment, and the Handmade Hugs set has one of my favorite sentiments.  Take a look-see:

Stampin' Up! Bird's Eye View Hugs & Stuff Easel Fun Fold Card

I selected elements from the Festive Friday Inspo List to help me out.  I’ve got Die Cutting, Easel Card and Gingham! 🙂

And my fun color palette is from the Just Us Girls color challenge.

I started with a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Lemon Lolly card stock that I scored at 5 1/2″ and 6 3/4″ on the long side.  I folded both score lines in the same direction (as valleys).

For the easel itself, I used a piece of Berry Burst cardstock and stamped it all over with the book image from Bird’s Eye View in Berry Burst ink for a tone-on-tone background.

I cut out the largest Nested Essentials rectangle from a piece of Basic White cardstock.  I stamped the Handmade Hugs sentiment in Berry Burst.  Next to it, I stamped the totes-adorbs owl from Bird’s Eye View in Basic Gray.

He got a pair of spectacles in Lemon Lolly.  And I used a Basic Gray Stampin’ Write Marker to sketch in some “ground” under him.

Using a banner die from the Nested Essentials, I cut out a piece of Berry Burst Glorious Gingham 6″ x 6″ DSP and a Lemon Lolly piece of Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP.

I adhered the two banners to the panel with Liquid Glue.

I popped the sentiment over the top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A few Berry Burst gems from the new Tinsel Gems Four-Pack finished off the card front/easel.

For the inside, I matted a piece of Basic White cardstock on Berry Burst and adhered it to the inside of the card base.

I matted more of the Berry Burst Glorious Gingham DSP on Berry Burst cardstock and adhered it to the bottom of the panel.

The easel stop is the next-to-smallest Nested Essentials cut from a piece of Basic White.  I stamped the Handmade Hugs sentiment in Berry Burst and the book image from Bird’s Eye View over the top in Lemon Lolly – and added another Tinsel Pack Four-Pack gem.

I popped the easel stop on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I wanted a little sumpin-sumpin on the top of the panel – so I stamped the Handmade Hugs curly-do in each corner in Lemon Lolly.

Using Liquid Glue only on the end panel of the card front, I adhered the card front to finish off the easel!  Easy peasy!!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Handmade Hugs curly-do in Lemon Lolly in the bottom corners on the front…

…and another little bit of Berry Burst Glorious Gingham DSP on the envelope flap.

Stampin' Up! Bird's Eye View Hugs & Stuff Easel Fun Fold CardEt Voila!  Easel cards are like the easiest fun folds EVER!  I love them!  And – I guess it’s pretty obvious why the Bird’s Eye View set caught my eye – it’s adorable!  Wouldn’t it be AWESOME for a graduation card?!? 🙂

Handmade Hugs coordinates with the Handmade Tag punch which carried over into the new catalog. I just really love that “Sending Hugs and Stuff” sentiment – but there are several others – plus cute little images to play with, too!

They came to play and brought some Glorious Gingham with them!  I LOVE gingham paper and this is an entire PACK of it!  WOW!

I hope you like!
