Create a Card

This week's card is an easel card.  This is the front of the card when it's closed.  For this card we used the stamp set C1483 Born to Ride.

Below is the card with the easel showing.

4 ¼” x 8 ½” Black card stock
4 ¼” x 5 ½” Black card stock
3 ¼” x 4 ¼” Black card stock
4” x 5 ¼” Cruisin’ Argyle B&T
2” x 3 ½” Twilight card stock
1 ¾” x 3 ¼” Grey Wool card stock
3” x 4” Embossed Diamond Plate Grey Wool card stock (this was a Cuttlebug embossing folder)

Stamp motorcycle with black ink on Grey Wool card stock.  Ink edges with black ink.  Attach to Twilight card stock.
Attach Embossed Grey Wool card stock to black card stock.  Wrap Baker’s Twine around and tie in a knot.
Attach Cruisin’ Argyle B&T to 4 ¼” x 5 ½” Black card stock piece.  Attach matted embossed piece ½” from bottom and right side.
Attach matted image 1” from bottom of card front 3/8” from right side

Score 4 ¼” x 8 ½” Black card stock at 4 ¼” and 6 3/8”.  Fold the 4 ¼” score as a peak and the 6 3/8’ as a valley.  Attach two or three strips of adhesive on the 2” end.  Attach this to the back of the card front 1 ¼” from top of card front.  

Stamp the Feel the Wind sentiment on the Grey Wool cut out and attach this to the Twilight cut out.  Attach to easel part of card as shown above.  The cut outs for the sentiment were made with the Close To My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  This stamp set is one of the sets that coordinates with the cartridge and lists the size to cut on the acrylic carrier sheet for the stamps.
