Stampin' Up! Colors & Contours - Easy Easel Card

Hello!  Welcome to my blog.  Today I'm sharing a quick and simple easel card.  I think this is the first easel card I have made, at least in a very long time.  I love the technique and that you can keep it simple, or get really fancy with it.  This one takes only 10-15 minutes to create and features Stampin' Up!'s Color & Contour stamp set, which is one of my go to stamp sets for quick and easy cards!

Card Base ~ Melon Mambo Cardstock ~ 11" x 4-1/4", score at 5-1/2" and at 2-3/4"
Layer 1 ~ Basic White Cardstock ~ 3-1/2" x 4-3/4"
Inside Layer ~ Basic White Cardstock ~ 4-1/4" x 5-1/2"
Scraps of Basic White Cardstock

  • Stamp the flower outline on Layer 1 using Old Olive ink.
  • Use Melon Mambo ink to stamp the splatter four times. 
  • Before stamping the inside of the flower with Melon Mambo ink, stamp off once on scrap paper. 
  • Cut out Layer 1 with the 2nd largest die from Scalloped Contours Dies. 
  • Heat Emboss the sentiment, using Versamark to stamp, then Black Embossing Powder.
  • Adhere the bottom half of Layer 1 to the bottom half of the Card Base, making sure to NOT get adhesive above the score line. 

Cut the Inside Layer with the largest die from Scalloped Contours Dies.  Heat Emboss the sentiment in the bottom center with Black Embossing Powder.  Stamp the flower bud outline with Old Olive Ink. Then stamp the inside with Melon Mambo, stamping off once first.  Glue the flower to another scrap or two of Basic White Cardstock.  Then, fussy cut around the flower.  Adhere the flower to the inside of your card, as shown.
