Home & Garden Tutorial ~ Get Them Before They are Gone!

Home & Garden Full Front Easel Card

This card turned out quite cute. I'm quite sure we have done this layout before with a different stamp set. 
However, just in case I will pop the measurements & instructions down below. 

This Home & Garden bundle will be leaving us at the end of June! 
So this card tutorial is great reminder to "order that" if it was on your list of "must have products". 
I didn't have as much time to combine it and the Flowering Rainboots set as I had wanted to! 
So many Stamp sets, so little time ~ I'll keep creating with it!

Home & Garden Bundle - $61.00
Don't buy it this way ☝

Since the Home & Garden stamp set and dies are in the "last chance" product sale that means there is a deal to be had...

Save Money this way πŸ‘‡

Flowering Rainboots Bundle also retiring, though there is no great savings to be had with this set. 
However, it will be "no longer available" at the end of June. 

It's a great bundle... some of my most popular cards this Spring were created with the Flowering Rain Boots Bundle

Quick Reminder of the Measurements for this card: 
Pear Pizzazz Cardstock - 4 1/4 x 11
Score @ 5 1/2
And score again @ 2 3/4

4 1/4 x 5 1/2 ( for front panel )
3/4 x 2 3/4 ( greeting layer )

Designer Series Paper - 4 x 5 1/4

Basic White Cardstock - 4 x 5 1/4 ( card inside )
1/2 x 2 1/2  ( to stamp sentiment )

Scraps of Soft Suede for die cut images
Scraps of silver or grey for die cut images.

Lady bug trinket ( used as a stopper to create the easel layout )
**If you don't have this you can just pop that inside sentiment up on a layer of Pear Pizzazz and adhere with dimensionals to the inside of the card in order to act as a stopper. 

Cut & Score the card pieces. 

Adhere designer series paper layer to the front of the 4 1/4 x 5 1/2  Pear Pizzazz Cardstock layer.

Apply adhesive to only the bottom section of the front of the card base. 
Attach the layer with the designer series paper to the adhesive on the front of the card base. 

Stamp & Die Cut the desired pieces to decorate the card front. 
Place on card front in desired positions. **Use dimensionals on some images to create some dimension. 

Stamp the sentiment and layer it on the small piece of Pear Pizzazz.

Add a little die cut grass and the sentiment to the front of the card.

Stamp a sentiment on bottom section of the inside card panel. 
I also stamped a little garden shovel and a bit of grass just to add some interest to the inside of the card.
Attach this layer to the card inside. 

Add a Ladybug Trinket as a stopper ( or see notes in cutting instructions ) for an alternate idea. 

Optional: you could add a lady bug or 2 to the card front. 

And there you go, test it out! The card front should open like an easel and sit up against the ladybug ( or inside sentiment) to act as a stopper to create the easel effect of this card. 

Super Easy... and ready to pop in the mail! 

I hope you enjoyed the tutorial for this Pop Up Easel Card!
