Spellbinders Die of the Month – June 2018
Today I’m sharing this easy to make easel card using the Spellbinders Die of the Month for June 2018. As you can see, in June you’ll receive this large cupcake die-set that includes the liner, the frosted cake, the flower dies, and the candle die.
This cupcake easel card was super easy to make! So easy that I’ll provide you with the “recipe” right after I share the supply list!
- Spellbinders Small Die of the Month Club
- Spellbinders Platinum 6 Die-cutting Machine
- Spellbinders Tool n’ One
- Scoring Board
- Artist Glue
- Off-white Card Stock
- Rose Gold Card Stock
- Designer Paper (your choice)
- Sentiment Stamp (your choice)
- Large flower embellishment (your choice)
- Flat back pearls
- Pop dots
First you begin by trimming a piece of card stock to 10×5. You’ll then place it on your scoring board horizontally and score it in half, at the five inch mark. Then score the first quadrant in half again at the 2 and a half inch mark. Fold along the score lines. This is your card base.
Second, you’ll trim another piece of plain card stock to 5×5 and attach this to the lower half of your card base. This is your easel.
Third, cut your decorative papers to 4 7/8 x 4 7/8 and you’ll adhere these with your scor-tape to the front and inside of your card.
Fourth, Die-cut your cake, candle and flower pieces from your Die Kit of the Month. Place two flower pieces using your pop dots midway on the inside of your card. These will hold your easel in place. You may decorate the edge of the inner card with some flat back pearls as I’ve done here.
Fifth, put your cupcake pieces together by gluing the liner part on the card, using the pop dots to add the frosted cake, and use the pop dots again for the flower garland and the candle. Attach a sentiment with pop dots, and a large flower embellishment at the bottom and you’re done!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this quick and easy Spellbinders card tutorial. Happy Crafting!
